5695309Op Art In Focus
DateSaturday 21st July 2018 to Sunday 5th July 2020
DescriptionA dazzling display from pioneering artists of the 1960s to today Op art - short for optical art - emerged in the 1960s. Its leading figures included Bridget Riley, Jesus Rafael Soto and Victor Vasarely. They combined lines, geometric shapes and eye popping colour to create artworks that fool the eye. Images could be subtle or disorientating, giving the illusion of movement. The display moves beyond the typical period of op art and includes works by more contemporary artists such as Angela Bulloch. Included is a rare installation of Jim Lambie's Zobop which floods the entire gallery floor with psychedelic patterning. Op art in Focus is a part of Tate Liverpool's in Focus series - displays of the Tate collection dedicated to significant modern and contemporary artists or movements.
