Kaleidoscope: Colour and Sequence in 1960s British Art

Walker Art Gallery

24 February – 3 June 2018

A stunning exhibition of painting and sculpture from the 1960s, drawn from the Arts Council and other major UK collections.

William Tucker, Thebes, 1966

British visual art underwent a radical transformation during the 1960s.

This exhibition takes a fresh look at the relationship not only between the bold colours and forms that defined the era, but also between different media and movements – and explores the strong sense of order underpinning the work.

Op and Pop Art, Constructivism and New Generation sculpture are represented through the work of over 20 artists, including sculptors Eduardo Paolozzi, Anthony Caro, Phillip King and Tim Scott, and painters Bridget Riley, Tess Jaray, Joe Tilson and Richard Smith.
