Carlos Cruz-Diez’s Physichromie 21

Physichromie 21 by Venezuelan artist Carlos Cruz-Diez is another highlight of the Cisneros’ gift to the Museum. Anne Umland, traces this work back to the artist’s studio in Paris in the 1960s and explores the ways Cruz-Diez’s Physichromie series is dependent on active viewer participation and contingencies of lighting.
