Ellsworth Kelly and the Auditorium

In 2012, the Fondation commissioned the artist Ellsworth Kelly to create a series of works for the future Auditorium of the building, designed by architect Franck Gehry.

To decorate this place dedicated mainly to music, the artist imagines a series of monochrome panels, which revolve around a central work: Spectrum VIII.
