The Responsive Eye

This is a video about The Responsive Eye exhibition at MoMA from 1965. I found it wandering around on Vimeo and it features the curator of the exhibition William Seitz, along with a psychologist to explain the science, some stylish patrons, and even Philip Johnson walking around the exhibition and sharing thoughts. There are other creative types in the video: Josef Albers, Mon Levinson, Larry Aldrich, etc. If you like old documentaries, art history or just op art, it’s worth a watch.
