Let’s look at the 1950s, the peak of artistic experimentation.
International avant-garde movements were always seeking new means of expression, and “Kinetic Art” was
without question among the most striking and fascinating of these.
To get an idea of what we mean, consider the etymology of the word that goes straight to the heart of the
movement: dynamism.
Our artists’s turned their attention to this aspect of reality and interpreted the world through works that
seemed to have a life of their own.
The greatest artists of this international artistic movement include Alexander Calder, Jean Tinguely Jesus,
Rafael Soto and Carlos Cruz-Diez, and in Italy, Enzo Mari and Bruno Munari stood out.
Their creations are primarily installations whose shared feature is movement; geometric shapes that rotate,
intersect, vibrate, jolt.
There’s no question that their visions always make an impression, which is why you shouldn’t miss the
“Optical Vibes” exhibition which us up until October 10, 2021 at the National Gallery of Modern and
Contemporary Art in Rome.
