Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum
The world-renowned father of the Optical-kinetic Art movement, Victor Vasarely created three-dimensional experiences via two-dimensional artworks featuring bold colors and geometric shapes. His innovative use of optical illusions became popular in the 1960s and 70s and optical art in design, advertisement, architecture became a part of everyday life.
Vasarely, whose motto was “art for all,” advocated for democratizing art by producing multiples and screen-prints and by integrating art into architecture and public spaces. Vasarely’s innovative use of optical illusions became popular in the 1960s and 70s, when Op Art permeated everyday life through design, advertisements, and architecture. His artwork exploring visual perception and spatial relationships is a source of inspiration for those interested in art, computer programming, architecture, and beyond.
From the collection of Herakleidon Museum in Athens, Greece, and organized by PAN Art Connections, Inc., this One Source Traveling Exhibition comprises more than 150 Vasarely serigraphs, lithographs, gouache paintings, and drawings.
