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).
