150 artists on exhibit
Works by about 150 artists are shown, presenting the history of abstract art through different periods.  The visit is two-fold, with a «vision» part, and a «space» part.  This helps understand the different aspects explored through art , such as  clouds, instability, distortion, void, immersion, blinking, or permutation.  A must see!
