"I arrived in Paris on October 12th, 1960 ... As a witness of the most significant art movements in the 20th century - including the kinetic art movement started by my father Carlos Cruz-Diez - I participated throughout the way and worked behind the scenes since the 1960s ..." wrote Carlos Cruz-Diez Jr.* for his 2015 dialogue tour 'Technology and Art, Architecture and Art' in China.

This year, he has returned to China for a dialogue tour at major Chinese universities and will share his over 40 years of experience whilst working alongside the great artist and his father Carlos Cruz-Diez.
