Carlos Cruz-Diez at the Cistern: Spatial Chromointerference
On view through January 13, 2019
Buffalo Bayou Partnership (BBP) commissioned famed Franco-Venezuelan artist Carlos Cruz-Diez to create a site-specific work for the Buffalo Bayou Park Cistern.
Color, movement and perception are the primary subjects in the work of Cruz-Diez. In the Cistern, the artist dematerializes the vast space, creating an immersive and ambiguous environment that questions our perception of time, perspective and volume. The complex projection of continuously moving chromatic modules invites visitors to become an essential component of the artwork.
