This is a major retrospective exhibition devoted to the work of celebrated British artist Bridget Riley.
Organised by the National Galleries of Scotland in partnership with Hayward Gallery and in close collaboration with the artist, this comprehensive exhibition is the first large-scale survey of Riley’s work to be held in the UK for 16 years.
The exhibition looks closely at the origins of Riley’s perceptual paintings and traces pivotal, decisive moments in her acclaimed career. It features the artist’s iconic black-and-white paintings of the 1960s, early representational paintings, expansive canvases in colour and recent wall paintings, as well as studies and preparatory material.
Alongside her best known canvases, the exhibition also includes the only three-dimensional work that the artist ever realised, Continuum (1963), as well as new wall paintings made specially for Hayward Gallery.
Spanning 70 years of Riley’s work, the exhibition offers visitors an unparalleled opportunity to experience powerful and engaging works by one of the most important artists of our time.
