In collaboration with the Museum of Geometric and MADI Art in Dallas, the Museum of Printing History presents Optical Spaces — the Art of Victor Vasarely, organized by Houston-based artist Orna Feinstein.

Victor Vasarely (1906—1997), a Hungarian born artist active in France throughout the 20th century, is considered to be one of the pioneers of the Op-Art movement. Through his studies at the Mühely Academy (also known as the Budapest Bauhaus), Vasarely was introduced to geometric abstraction, which provided the foundation for his work as a painter and graphic artist. By augmenting basic geometric forms and combining them with principles of color theory, Vasarely destabilized the pictorial surface creating the illusion of depth and movement. His work went on to influence a generation of young artists in the 1960s and created a lasting impact on poster and fabric design.
