Abstract

Conceived from an international point of view, the volume which accompanies this exhibition is dedicated to artistic experimentation with colour, optics, movement and perception, over a time period which spans the thirteenth to twentieth centuries. This exploration involves art, photography, miniatures, sculpture, science and technique, ranging from mediaeval miniatures to studies of optics and the theory of colours, from the Neo-impressionist revolution in visual perception to abstraction founded on rhythm and geometry and to optical art, and from the representation of movement to kinetic objects, scientific and technological instruments and artworks, as they enter into dialogue with the beginnings of experimental photography and cinema.
