The exhibition “Op Infinitum: ‘The Responsive Eye’ Fifty Years After” opens at David Richard Gallery in Santa Fe, NM, from May 26 to July 6, 2015.
From the press release of the exhibition,
“Op Infinitum: ‘The Responsive Eye’ Fifty Years After” is the second installment of a four part series commemorating the fiftieth anniversary of the ground-breaking “Op Art” exhibition organized by William C. Seitz at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in February, 1965. The gallery’s first presentation earlier in 2014 focused on the roster of the “The Responsive Eye”, critically examining the artwork both during the 1960s and later in the careers of a group of American artists who were part of that seminal exhibition. This presentation moves beyond an analysis of the “roster” and turns toward the “spirit” of “The Responsive Eye” and that period of time in the early 60s as Seitz curated his presentation. David Richard Gallery’s sequence of exhibitions examining and reconsidering “The Responsive Eye” is organized by art historian, curator and critic Peter Frank and gallerist, historian and curator David Eichholtz.
Featured artists are Richard Anuszkiewicz, Hannes Beckmann, Karl Benjamin, Ernst Benkert, Leon Berkowitz, Francis Celentano, Thomas Downing, Lorser Feitelson, John Goodyear, Francis Hewitt, Charles Hinman, Will Insley, Ward Jackson, Leroy Lamis, Mon Levinson, Alexander Liberman, Ed Mieczkowski, Rakuko Naito, Paul Reed, Oli Sihvonen, Julian Stanczak, Peter Stroud, Tadaaki, Tadasky, Leo Valledor, Mario Yrisarry, Larry Zox.
