July 8 – August 30
In 1955, Victor Vasarely and Denise René curated an exhibition entitled Le Mouvment at Galerie Denise René, Paris. The exhibition examined Kinetic Art with an overview of optical art. Alongside Vaserely, Calder and Duchamp exhibited Agam, Bury, Jacobsen, Soto and Tinguely. Our aim was to, as closely as possible, recreate in Ireland that 1955 show, a show which was at the centre of the art world in Paris. We aimed to re- contextulise it to look at the relevance of Op and Kinetic art in the 21st Century. Curated by John Cunningham & Adrian Kelly, curatorial advisors Pierre Vasarely and Dr. Sarkany.
