Kaleidoscope: Colour and Sequence in 1960s British Art
Library Shelf Location 05c.RUDD
Publication Date 2017

Bringing together outstanding examples of painting and sculpture from the Arts Council Collection and other major UK collections, Kaleidoscope examines 1960s British art through relationships between colour and form, rationality and irrationality, order and disorder. Curator Natalie Rudd introduces us to one of the most dynamic periods of visual art in Britain, while co-Curator Sam Cornish seeks to present and interrogate fresh perspectives and relationships between works. Drawing comparison through sequence and symmetry between the mind-bending surfaces of Op Art, the flattened repetition of Pop, the mathematical order of Constructivism, and the sequential placement of brightly-coloured abstract units found in New Generation Sculpture. Packed with colour and dynamic forms, Kaleidoscope illustrates the work of over twenty artists, including Tess Jaray, Phillip King, Kim Lim, Mary Martin, Eduardo Paolozzi, Bridget Riley, Tim Scott, Richard Smith, William Tucker and William Turnbull, encouraging us to see each striking artwork in a new light.
