Artist Recently Chosen to Create Signature Artwork for New Marlins Stadium Introduces his Groundbreaking Work to South Floridians
Carlos Cruz-Diez: The Embodied Experience of Color
March 19 â€“ June 20, 2010
On view at Miami Art Museum from March 19 through June 20, 2010, the exhibition invites visitors to become participants in the artwork, experiencing color through their interactions with four light installations, including the groundbreaking CromosaturaciÃ³n (Chromosaturation), 1968. Carlos Cruz-Diez recently made headlines when he was selected to create a major artwork feature for the new Miami Marlins Stadium.
Carlos Cruz-Diez: The Embodied Experience of Color explores the artist’s pioneering contribution to experimental practices with color and perceptual structures in the 1960s and 1970s that proposed new definitions for the art work as a field of participation.

The exhibition will feature CromosaturaciÃ³n (Chromosaturation), a site-specific environment designed by the artist that focuses on the relationship between color and perception. Initially conceived in 1965 and presented for the first time in 1968 in the Ostwald Museum in Dortmund, Germany, this work consists of three separate color chambers infused with red, green and blue light. The real content of this work is the visitor’s experience of walking through the shifting chromatic space and interacting over time through his physical movement.
