The works of art at the comprehensive exhibition Eye Attack. Op Art and kinetic art in the Stedelijk Museum Schiedam aim to delude you. You don't see what you think. Something is turning that is in fact standing still and a flat canvas is bulging out. The artists know how to deceive the eye with lines, patterns and coloured areas. They make Op Art, which is short for Optical Art and a tongue-in-cheek reference to Pop Art. Eye Attack also shows art that is literally moving – sculptures with iron filings, light installations and mirrors. This extensive retrospective exhibition with works of international trend-setting artists from the period 1950 - 1970 is on view from 25 February to 18 June 2017.
