Bridget Riley: Silkscreen Prints 1962-2001
13 April - 8 June 2002
Bridget Riley gained recognition in the 1960s as the leading figure of the Op Art Movement, and is now regarded as one of the most influential painters working in Britain today. Best known as a painter of large abstract canvasses, Riley has also made screen prints throughout her career. She has been most active as a printmaker during periods when interest in her work was greatest, notably during the 1960s and late 1990s.
This new touring exhibition presents a definitive survey of Riley's printmaking, and includes approximately 40 prints selected by the artist from all periods of her work. This is a National Touring Exhibition from the Hayward Gallery.
