Joe Houston, artist, curator, and contributing author for the Moving Vision catalogue.
This presentation explores the cultural and art historical context of the 1960s that gave rise to a radical approach to painting, which made the viewer’s own perception the central subject of the art work. While Op art seemed to emerge overnight on as a fully-fledged international art movement, Joe Houston traces its deeper origins and makes the case for its inevitability in the continuum of modernism.
