In the early 1960s, kinetic art is everywhere in Europe with a double credo: destabilize the perception and democratize art. Optical illusions paintings, reliefs on the motorized light, and Vertigo environments offer experiences of pleasure and discomfort. Called 'Op Art' in 1964, this avant-garde art, so popular, meeting great success among the public. Art of movement and light, the cinema is, meanwhile, both a predecessor, able to sublimate his game visuals, and a follower, which seeks to vampirize it by desire of modernity. The exhibition thus plunges the visitor within a passionate story between two arts in productive friction. The films are punctuated persiflages and misunderstandings, mutual sublimation, Lord pop or Baroque, collaborations or plagiarism.
Office Hélène Guenin, Director of the MAMAC and Pauline Mari, historian of art.
