Aktis Gallery is delighted to present 
an exclusive exhibition dedicated to one of the greatest artists of his time,
Le Corbusier 

Aktis Gallery believes exhibiting our Le Corbusier collection in Marseille, only a few kilometres away from the Cité Radieuse, built by Le Corbusier in Marseille in 1952, will be a unique and exciting experience for our collectors. 

The Cité Radieuse in Marseille, one of Le Corbusier's most famous works, proved enormously influential and is often cited as the initial inspiration of the Brutalist architectural style and philosophy. In July 2016, the Unité in Marseille and several other works by Le Corbusier were inscribed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. 

As an emblematic figure of modernity, Charles-Édouard Jeanneret, known as Le Corbusier (1887 - 1965), is all at once: architect, urban planner, painter, sculptor, designer and poet. Intrinsically linked, his architectural language and his plastic vocabulary have had a significant influence on the 20th-century avant-garde. In search of the universal man, the Open Hand’s creator relentlessly explores the field of possibilities of the modern world and thus impulses a new way of living through his revolutionary urban vision and his new measurement standard, the Modulor.

The body of work presented at this exhibition aims to highlight the richness of Le Corbusier’s artistic production and its role in modern architecture. Visitors will be invited to discover the essence of his creative process through this unique ensemble of twenty original works.
