The exhibition, which includes 95 works of 57 artists from 21 countries, is curated by Valentina Ravaglia, Exhibitions and International Art Curator of Tate Modern, the world-famous art museum in London.

The "Dynamic Eye: Beyond Optical and Kinetic Art" exhibition, which reconsiders optical and kinetic art from a global perspective and brings together modernist predecessors and contemporary artists as well as artists closely related to this movement, is a journey into 20th century art. The exhibition awaits its visitors between January 23 and May 19, 2024.

The optical and kinetic art movement emerged in the 1950s and 1960s, inspired by mathematics, color theory, and the psychology and physiology of perception. While optical art aims to create the illusion of movement with repetitive forms, geometric shapes and eye-catching colors, Kinetic Art includes movement elements using motors and moving parts. Optical and kinetic art is guided by the idea that art should be an experience rather than an object. Proponents of the movement, including artists such as Bridget Riley, Jesus Rafael Soto and Victor Vasarely, aim to treat the audience not only as a passive spectator but as an active participant engaged in art in time and space.

Tate's vision is to serve as one of the most artistically adventurous and culturally inclusive art museums for the UK and the world. Tate delivers this through operations at its four UK museums (Tate Liverpool, Tate St Ives, Tate Britain and Tate Modern), its digital platforms and collaborations with national and international partners. At its center is the huge Tate Collection, which includes British art from the 16th century to the present and international modern art from 1900 to the present. Tate hosts approximately 8.2 million visitors a year with its four museums. Among the museums, Tate Modern, which opened its doors in 2000, quickly took its place among the most important modern and contemporary art museums in the world. Tate Modern reached approximately 4 million visitors in 2022. In terms of the number of visitors, Tate Modern is among the most visited museums in the world, along with the Louvre Museum in France, the Vatican Museum in the Vatican and the British Museum in England.
