IN CELEBRATION of its 50th anniversary, Modern Art Oxford stages the third exhibition of Kaleidoscope, a programme that showcases significant art of the past and new commissions from well-known contemporary artists. The exhibition, Mystics and Rationalists comprises drawing, sculpture and video animation by Daniel Buren, Sol Le Witt, Dorothy Cross, Ibrahim El-Salahi, Dan Graham, Yoko Ono, Karla Black and Amy Silman.
Informed by the words of Sol Le Witt that “conceptual artists are mystics, rather than rationalists. They leap to conclusions that logic cannot reach”, this exhibition defies traditional convention by offering an alternative view of the world. These artists push boundaries or challenge the processes of modern day technology using a range of materials as paradigms for their unusual creations.
