Some very fine examples of op and kinetic art are on display in an exhibition of 15 works by the Venezuelan artist Carlos Cruz-Diez and other artists. Defined as art that depends on motion for it to be fully appreciated, kinetic and op, or optical, art encourages audiences to actively participate in the viewing experience. The exhibition is co-hosted with Galerie Denise Rene in Paris, where many of the artists on show were launched in the 1950s. Among them was Victor Vasarely whose first solo show marked the gallery's opening after World War II.
"With this exhibition I trust that we are opening new routes of op and kinetic art to Asian audiences, presenting masterpieces and artists previously unseen in the region, as well as introducing emerging talent side by side with the great masters," says Puerta Roja gallery founder Adriana Alvarez-Nichol.
