Vera Molnar

1924, Paris, France

Vera Molnar (Budapest, Hungary, 1924) is a Hungarian-born French artist.

After completing her studies at the Budapest School of Fine Arts (1942-1947), she moved to Paris. Along with other artists working in geometric abstraction who had emigrated to Paris (such as Julio Le Parc), Molnar co-founded the GRAV (Groupe de Recherche d’Art Visuel) collective, which used artistic means to study optics.

In 1968, she began working with computers. She employs various programmatic games and mathematical principles to create series of works guided by a unifying quest for the invisible. Molnar shares creative responsibilities with the machines she uses in her art.

Vera Molnar is represented, among others, by galleries such as Oniris in Rennes, Berthet-Aittouarès in Paris, DAM in Berlin, and Senior & Shopmaker in New York. In 2018, she was awarded the AWARE Honorary Prize, jointly with Nil Yalter, by unanimous decision of the jury.
