Victor Vararely, Hungarian-born artist considered to be the founder of “op-art”, believes that the truths of our time are represented by relativity, the speed of light, and the weight of an atom. To this end he has gone from representational abstraction, through kinetic experiment, to what he terms an abstract geometrical alphabet.
Our collection comprises over 40,000 moving image works, acquired and catalogued between the 1940s and early 2000s. As a result, some items may reflect outdated, offensive and possibly harmful views and opinions. ACMI is working to identify and redress such usages.
