Organized in partnership with the Generali Foundation, Photo Kinetics explores the connection between movement, the body, and light in art. The works span a period from the nineteenth century to the present day and encompass a wide variety of media: kinetic objects, performances, and films shown in combination with photograms and photographs, lithographs, and drawings.
