The Responsive Eye , which opened at the Museum of Modern Art in 1965, was a seminal overview of Optical Art in the Americas and Europe. MOMA curator William C. Seitz included works by Victor Vasarely, Richard Anuszkiewicz, Bridget Riley, and Ed Mieczkowski. Seitz showed, side by side, kinetic works and art that used geometry and color to present perceptual challenges to the viewer. Post Op: ‘The Responsive Eye’ Fifty Years After opens at David Richard Gallery on Friday, Feb. 27. The commemorative show is a selection of works by artists in the original exhibit paired with more recent pieces by the same artists, including Mieczkowski, who is known for his Op Art pieces and geometric abstractions. Opening concurrently with the David Richard exhibit is Mieczkowski’s solo show, The Aesthetics of Geometry, on view at Lew Allen Galleries. On the cover is Tadasky’s 1965 painting C143 , on view at David Richard Gallery, © Tadasky (Tadasuke Kuwayama).
