Jesús Soto is one of the most important representatives of kinetic art. Between 1950 and 1952 he created the first works in which elements in space placed in series produced effects of virtual movement and optical vibration.

Soto was a special guest of the 1966 Venice Biennial and participated in the 1996 São Paulo Biennial.

The Jesús Soto Museum of Modern Art was inaugurated in 1973 in Ciudad Bolívar.
