There are 34 pieces on display from 34 artists. It is the first in a series of exhibitions commemorating the 50th anniversary of the original Responsive Eye exhibition and will take a closer look at the works of those key artists both during the peak Op Art time (mid to late 1960s) and later in their careers.
The exhibition runs from February 27th to April 12, 2015.

A new exhibition of works by Marius Strugariu, who we featured on the site some time ago, opens on 14th March 2015 (8pm) at B32 Artspace, Bourgognestraat 32, 6221 BZ Maastricht, The Netherlands.
The exhibition is called AB ORIGINE. You can find out more information here. The exhibition runs from 14th March to 29th March and is open Thursdays and Fridays 1pm – 6pm and Saturdays and Sundays 2pm – 8pm.
“AB ORIGINE is a time/space introspection, where archaic symbols define contemporary issues. The observer is invited to reflect upon his Absolute Self, in the midst of a field of collective memories coming from the roots of existence.
In what the artist calls Mirrors, embodied in an installation of paintings, he depicts the pure Potential of our inner Self through reflections over ones self perceptions.
Its all about harmonic frequencies that fuse the mental states together with the Essence of the source of knowledge and information.
The artist invites us to step further into understanding the mechanisms of constraint and comprehend a field of absolute unconditional energy.”

Polly Merredew is taking part in a new exhibition at Quad in Derby (QUAD, Market Place, Cathedral Quarter, DerbyDE1 3AS). The exhibition is part of a series of 3-D inspired events taking place at Quad. The exhibition runs through to Sunday 23rd February 2014. Entrance is free. The organisers found Polly’s work through this site so I’m kind of pleased about that.

“X-Y-Z is an exhibition that explores 3D through the work of international artists utilising age-old techniques such as lenticulars, autostereograms, stereograms, holography and anaglyph 3D. Here these classic and nostalgia-inducing methods which offer us the illusion of depth and three-dimensionality are embraced and championed.
Using these techniques the artists play with the notion of perception and sensation, giving us an opportunity to view the world in a unique and playful way. Each artist tackles different concepts within their work, from Thomas Hämén’s series Metadata (stereogram) inspired by the computer generated Magic Eye® autostereograms from the 1990s, to Chloe Humenko’s stunning filmic anaglyphic 3D photographs, evoking memories of classic 3D cinema.
The resulting exhibition takes us on a nostalgic journey through the recent history of 3D technology and how it is being applied creatively to contemporary art practice.”
