A new online exhibition opening in February at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art, “Moving Vision: Op and Kinetic Art from the Sixties and Seventies,” will introduce visitors to "The Science of Seeing," thanks to local board-certified ophthalmologist Maria Lim, MD. Her virtual talk, scheduled for March 31, will explore the physiology of the eye, explain how we see, and discuss the visual processing that occurs in the brain when we view works of art. “Moving Vision,” organized by OKCMOA, highlights more than 40 works centered around the museum’s own collection of Op and Kinetic Art, alongside a series of historically significant loans from major private collections. The exhibition surveys more than two decades of Op and Kinetic art, featuring the founder of Kinetic art, Alexander Calder; influential Op artist Victor Vasarely; and other internationally celebrated artists such as Bridget Riley, Fletcher Benton, and more. The exhibition runs through May 16.
