Curated by Jorge Daniel Veneciano, “The Illusive Eye” offers a broad intellectual context for Op art, Geometric Abstraction, and Kinetic art. The exhibition celebrates and revisits the MoMA's 1965 “The Responsive Eye” from a Latin American perspective.
The exhibition proposes thus a special focus on artworks from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Cuba, Puerto Rico, Venezuela and Uruguay alongside artists’ artworks from Europe and the US originally presented in the exhibition 50 years ago.

Daelim Museum (Seoul - South Korea) presents the exhibition "Spatial Illumination – 9 Lights in 9 Rooms" in its new exhibition venue, D Museum. For many years, light has been considered as a beguiling topic, a medium, and a source of inspiration motivating many artists regardless their genre including art, architecture, and design.
This exhibition rediscovers light with its artistic approach allowing the audience to encounter light with a new perspective whilst it is often taken for granted in daily lives despite its necessity.
