Warning: this exhibition can cause dizziness and nausea. This was written on the wall label before the entrance to the Louisiana Museum of Art’s exhibition Eye Attack. This show explores Op Art and Kinetic Art from 1950-1970. Works spin, twist, flicker. Or so they seem. It is up to you to decipher what works are actually moving and which works make you think they are in motion by playing tricks with your eyes. There are optical environments you can enter, videos to watch and a timeline of Op Art and Kinetic Art. This exhibition will  attack your eyes but in an unique and pleasing manner.

Louisiana Museum of Art

IMG_7231With a breathtaking view of the Oresund Sound, the Louisiana Museum of Art is worth the visit. Upon entering the grounds you can decide if you would like to enter the museum or wander through the sculpture park. However, these two decisions are not mutually exclusive. The glass walls of the museum allow you to see the sculptures outside when you are in the museum and if you are outside, you can view the paintings hanging on the wall. The museum incorporates nature in a minimalistic fashion that elegantly showcases Danish architectural styles.
