"Révolutions Xenakis" at the Philharmonie de Paris featuring the work of Carlos Cruz-Diez

"Révolutions Xenakis" at the Philharmonie de Paris is a survey of the artistic current that inspired the avant-garde composer Iannis Xenakis (1922-2001). The show dives into the similarities of the kinetic art movement and the work of Xenakis, namely the experimental practices; the interest in technical innovations and hybridizations; the viewer’s active role; and finally, the spectacular – even playful – dimension of their work.
