The Location

— Chromosaturation debuted in 1968 in Grenoble, France. The light-and-space installation by Franco-Venezuelan artist Carlos Cruz-Díez aims to disorient the retina and challenge one’s notion of color. “The idea occurred to me one day in 1965 in my workshop in Paris,” Cruz-Díez writes in his exhibition statement. “I had discovered how to immerse the viewer in an environment of colored air, a space where color could express itself by appearing on people, objects, and walls … These works echo the idea that every culture has always sprung from a ‘primary event,’ a simple situation that then evolves and unleashes a whole way of thinking, influencing sensibilities and creating myths.”

— Various iterations of the work have since traveled the globe. Chromosaturation appeared at the Palm Springs Art Museum as part of the exhibition Kinesthesia: Latin American Art, 1954–1969.

— Cruz-Díez is 94 and lives in Paris.
