MOME entertained Pierre Vasarely

Date: 2022.06.22
On 15 June, Hungarian-born Victor Vasarely’s grandson Pierre Vasarely paid a visit to the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design. An exhibition for the event featured works created at the op-art courses of recent years with the participation of Object Design (Glass), as well as Photography és Architecture students and teachers.

As the grandson of Pierre Vasarely, regarded as the father of op-art, Victor is the chairman of the Vasarely Foundation and a honorary Hungarian consul. His visit to MOME is all the more special because the student works selected will also be exhibited at the museum of Fondation Vasarely in Aix-en-Provence, France. In addition, they will also be displayed at the French Institute, whose French cultural attache Sophie Sellier was also present at the visit.

2022 is the International Year of Glass, which will be celebrated by MOME with various events and contributions.
