Re-Op: ‘The Responsive Eye’ Fifty Years After” is the third installment of a critical series of presentations that has been reexamining the seminal exhibition organized by William C. Seitz in winter-spring 1965 at New York’s Museum of Modern Art. “Re-Op” presents contemporary artworks from many of the American artists who were included in the MoMA exhibition, including: Richard Anuszkiewicz, Karl Benjamin, Francis Celentano, John Goodyear, Ed Mieczkowski, Oli Sihvonen, Julian Stanczak and Tadasky. The artworks presented here were produced well after the Op Art craze and later in the careers of these artists, between 1983 and 2014. More importantly, these works demonstrate how these visionary artists maintained the rigor and discipline they brought to understanding visual perception by creating the illusion of three-dimensional space and motion using mostly line and color.
