Movement, whether actual or an illusion, is a crucial element in art. An art work may incorporate actual motion; that is, the artwork itself moves in some way. Or it may incorporate the illusion of, or implied movement. ART247's Movement in Art | Exhibition 2018 will focus on both actual movement or motion, as well as the illusion of or implied movement or motion in Art.
Actual movement or motion:
Artwork that incorporates actual movement is called kinetic. An artwork can move on its own in several ways: through natural properties or effects such as air currents, or it may be mechanically or technologically driven, or it may involve either the artist or the viewer moving it.
Implied Movement or Motion:
Movement can be suggested visually in a variety of ways: through the use of diagonal, gestural, and directional lines; repetition; position and size of objects; the position or implied eye-line of a figure, a symbolic representation of movement.
Artists, Photographers, and Sculptures are asked to explore, select, and focus on either or both kinetic or implied movement in their Art.
