London auction house Christie’s has opened its doors to an exhibition of kinetic art. The show, entitled “Turn Me On”, runs until April 7.
Christie’s says that the exhibition, which features works produced between 1948 and 1979, aims to revive interest in kinetic art.
Jacob Uecker, Christie’s post-war and contemporary art expert, explained: “There are very different types of kinetic art. It’s not a genre, it’s not a movement.”
“In a sense, it’s different artists from Latin America and Europe who are trying to explore new possibilities – incorporating new materials, experimenting with ideas and we see things, but in very different ways,” Uecker added.
The Christie’s kinetic art show is the first of its kind to be hosted in London for more than 40 years.
