The current exhibition is presented by the Buenos Aires Museum as a tribute of the iconic exhibition of optical art held in New York in 1965: The Responsive Eye.
By Walter Raymond
Celebrating 50 years of the presentation at the Museum of Modern Art in New York (MoMA) of the iconic exhibition The Responsive Eye—one of the first investigations associated with pure form, color, and line—the Museum of Contemporary Art of Buenos Aires (MACBA) presents Geometric Obsession - American School 1965 to 2015, on view until March 13, 2016.
The Responsive Eye was the first interpretation of the synchronicity between optical art and the psychedelic culture that explored the effects of certain drugs such as LSD and mescaline—during 1960’s—in our appreciation of the visual arts.

The current exhibition, Geometric Obsession, is expected to be presented in different cities in Argentina before moving to Chile. ■
