From September 26th, 2020 - January 31st, 2021, the kunsthalle messmer will present the diverse group exhibition «Fantastic Imagery». The various positions of 27 internationally known, contemporary artists as well as famous representatives of modernism, such as Victor Vasarely (1906-1997), on the subject of perception and the sensory world in which we live are shown. This topic is dealt with by over 80 fascinating works, which range from optical illusions and surreal dream worlds, through captivating light installations and socially critical art photography to abstract painting and glass constructions. You can see among others Works by important representatives of OP Art and Concrete Art, such as Carlos Cruz-Diez (1923-2019), Ludwig Wilding (1927-2010) and François Morellet (1926-2016), as well as Patrick Hughes (* 1939), the inventor of the «Reverspective» (relief-like works that create an optical illusion) and the art photographer Cécile Plaisance (* 1968) with her socially critical and ironic works, in which she uses a special lens grid method to address the role of women. In «Fantastische Bildwelten» an all-round view of the contemporary art scene with influences from Pop Art, kinetics and the concrete-constructive genre should be provided. In addition to the historical review of the «New OP-Art» of today, the themes of «Movement and Optics» are artistically treated as sensual and aesthetic means. From optical illusions to color and light installations to kinetic works, everything and more can be seen in the messmer art hall.
