Carlos Cruz-Diez: Color in Space and Time

The unstable nature of color has been the investigation in the works of Carlos Cruz-Diez. We visit the Museum of Fine Arts Houston to look at color as a “situation” of light, space and time through experimentations by the iconic contemporary artist, on view in a major retrospective exhibition.

Catherine Lu chats first with Curator Mari Carmen Ramirez and then with ground-breaking Franco-Venezuelan artist, Carlos Cruz-Diez.
