Christie’s presents "Turn Me On", a private selling exhibition of Kinetic Art from Europe and Latin America. Focusing on motorised Kinetic works created from 1950 to the early 1970s, this exhibition presents works that reflect the new artistic tendencies and visual language explored in the postwar period.

These artists redefined art’s traditional parameters by engaging with a wealth of new materials, processes and technology. It is the aim of this exhibition to assess this dialogue with a specific focus on the unique artistic collaborations and exchanges between Latin America and Europe. The resulting range of kinetic artwork is astounding and includes Pol Bury, Marina Apollonio, Soto, Gianni Colombo, Jean Tinguely, amongst others.

The exhibition features a Chromointerférence mécanique from 1968 by Carlos Cruz-Diez.
