"post-hypnotic"
1999-09-04 until 1999-10-31
Contemporary Art Center
Cincinnati, OH, USA United States of America

Pulsating patterns, glowing afterimages, vibrating visions ... it's enough to send a person's head spinning. Since the Op Art movement peaked in the mid-1960s, numerous artists have revisited visual phenomena that create sensations often associated with altered mind states. post-hypnotic examines the recent re-evaluation of optical effects in the work of 28 painters from the United States, Switzerland, England and Japan. The 50 paintings in the exhibition show the precision of the artists while pushing the blurry limits of human sight, sometimes creating a heady sense of vertigo. Artists exhibited in post-hypnotic will include John Armleder, Peter Halley, Judy Ledgerwood, Phillip Taaffe and Fred Tomaselli.

post-hypnotic is organized by University Galleries of Illinois State University and is supported in part by grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Illinois Arts Council. A full-color catalog with essays by Tom Moody and Barry Blinderman is available.
