Art experts describe MADI Art as approachable, energetic and bright; a non-representational form focusing on geometric shapes, vibrant colors and viewer interaction. MADI artists direct attention to the object itself in a search for beauty. Presented in extraordinary formats, MADI conveys a sense of joie de vivre reaching beyond customary boundaries and media. Discover more about the museum’s origins, the genesis of the MADI movement, the founding artists, and explore the collection of the museum.
MADI is a great artistic adventure, and perhaps, the only existing movement which can justify half a century of existance. MADI is more than an avant-garde movement; it has an underlying wave with several and differing offspring. It is the slow-paced growth of a tectonic plate in the history of art. Indeed, since art and environment are perveived as the fusion of two cultural phenomena, the progression and expression of both of these blend in everyday life.
