Dallas Museum of Art presents the power of kineticism in art with the special exhibition "Movement: The Legacy of Kineticism." Featuring 80 works drawn from the Museum’s collection, "Movement" showcases the work of artists from three historical eras, beginning in the early 20th century and spanning through present day, who utilize optical effects or mechanical or manipulable parts to engage the viewer physically or perceptually.

The exhibition demonstrates how artists working today have been influenced by the long legacy of dynamic abstraction, from the utopian work by the avant-garde in Russia, Europe and the Americas to the European “Op” artists and Brazilian Neoconcretists working in the 1960s. This style of work engulfs the visitor in their surroundings and empowers them to participate in its co-creation.

"Movement: The Legacy of Kineticism" traces the origins and evolution of kineticism through three distinct time periods, unifying two-dimensional paintings, three-dimensional sculptures, projections and interactive objects.

The exhibition will remain on display through July 16, 2023.
