"Kinesthesia: Latin American Kinetic Art, 1954–1969" examines the pioneering role played by South American artists in the international Kinetic Art movement of the 1950s and 1960s. The exhibition is grounded on scholarly research into experimental art movements of the late 1940s and early 1950s in Buenos Aires, Caracas, and Rio de Janeiro. Kinesthesia begins its survey with the layered “vibrational” works created by Jesús Rafael Soto for the historic Le Mouvement exhibition at Galerie Denise René in Paris (1955). It then goes on to explore more than fifty examples by nine artists such as Carlos Cruz-Diez, Gyula Kosice, and Julio Le Parc, along with Martha Boto, Horacio García-Rossi, Alejandro Otero, Abraham Palatnik, and Gregorio Vardánega.

This exhibition is part of "Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA", a far-reaching and ambitious exploration of Latin American and Latino art in dialogue with Los Angeles. 

A Chromosaturation by Carlos Cruz-Diez, amongst other artworks by the artist, will be part of the show.
