Force Fields: Phases of the Kinetic.
High modernist blind spots persist when it comes to '60s kinetic art, which still evokes, in many minds, ideas of tinkly metallic kitsch. In "Force Fields," critic and curator Guy Brett promises to dispatch such biases. Placing work by the likes of Jean Tinguely, Pol Bury, and Julio Le Parc in the broader context of movement and the kinetic in abstract art from 1930 to 1970, Brett brings his internationalist perspective to bear on this ambitious exhibition: Featured artists and filmmakers hail from Latin America, China, and the Soviet Union as well as Europe and the US. Apr. 18-June 18; Hayward Gallery, London, July 13-Sept. 10.
