Vasarely exhibition closed for a month whilst it’s being shown in Madrid. Bizarre thing to do. Temporary exhibition of obscure artist(s) looked pretentious so didn’t bother.

You must check out the virtual reality exhibit. It is visual feast. Take your time to explore the optical effects of each work of art.

This is one of those museum dedicated to a single artist, in this case Victor Vasarely. There are others (Clyfford Still in Denver comes to mind). Don't worry about the artists ego. These museums have unique access to works by the artists, in this case...More

It was a scorching hot day and we decided to hide in the shadow of this museum. I am not big fan of museums but one has a special vibe. Complexity of geometrical firms creating stunning 3D effects. I spent couple of hours enjoying this...More
