INDUCCIÓN CROMÁTICA DOBLE FRECUENCIA JARDINES DE LA COLINA CREATIVA 
CARLOS CRUZ-DIEZ

Project type: Restoration

Artist: Carlos Cruz-Diez

Status: Undergoing inspection

Project year: 1993

Location: Colina Creativa, Centro de Artes Integradas, Caracas – Venezuela

The Integrated Arts Center (Centro de Artes Integradas) was founded in 1979 motivated by an urge to integrate all artistic disciplines: music, dance, theater, and plastic arts. The proposal was to create an educational and cultural center of the highest standard that would allow for a direct intervention of the private sector in the development of art in Venezuela. The center extends for over 12 acres of land inside the Metropolitan University in the Terrazas del Ávila residential development, in which Colina Creativa and Colegio Integral El Ávila were built.

 

Colina Creativa is located in the Metropolitan University rental area and comprises 7 buildings, including 4 schools focused on Cinema, Theater, Photography, and plastic arts. The remaining units are intended for use as rental offices for different art, science and technology related companies.

Shaped as a grandstand and with sophisticated chromatics, Inducción Cromática a Doble Frecuencia sits outdoors, framed by a vegetable environment. It was created by Carlos Cruz-Diez for Colina Creativa’s gardens in the Metropolitan University Integrated Arts Centers; it is a unique piece, of unrepeatable nature, designed for the indulgence of the senses.

Carlos Cruz-Diez

Carlos Cruz-Diez (1923) is a French-Venezuelan artist who lives and works in Paris as of 1960. His plastic proposal, one of the most original within the kinetic movement, unveils the artist as one of the most important color theorists of the 20th century and one of the most prominent figures of contemporary art. His work gravitates around the chromatic phenomenon and comprises eight investigations: Couleur Additive, Physichromie, Induction Chromatique, Chromointerférence, Transchromiea, Chromosaturation, Chromoscope and Couleur à l’Espace. His optokinetic work is exhibited in permanent collections from prestigious museums, such as the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York; Tate Modern in London; Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville and Centre Pompidou in Paris; the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, and the Wallraf Richartz Museum in Colonia, among others.
