MOMA 'OP ART' opening Doco
25 February 2007 | by (home of 2000 Olympics) – See all my reviews

I found THE RESPONSIVE EYE on a DVD compilation I have entitled "ANNEES 60".

A 20 minute film documenting the opening night of a OP ART exhibition at the MOMA in New York 1966. An interesting piece as it contains many fantastic art works and even contains quick interviews with some of the artists, such as David Hockney.

I don't know if it was intentional, but the way this film was cut (by Brian De Palma) it comes across in some scenes as a poke at the so-called art experts and New York art set (no-one under 40 years old) and Andy Warhol Factory bunch is here as well.

"This work is a sham!" "It makes my head hurt" "I would love to buy one, but they are not selling!". My favourite edit contains an ultra-cool woman talking about the beauty of the work and mid-interview stops to say "Hello" to a friend of hers, which De Palma kept in it's entirety.

An odd curio from a decade of art that still seems even more odd and alive today.
