This Saturday 18 December, sees the opening of Bridget Riley: Pleasures of Sight, an exploration of her colourful, abstract language and her masterful manipulation of the senses. The exhibition at The Lightbox includes an early colour study and a large-scale print from the Moniker Projects collection, on loan for the duration of the four-month show.
Inarguably one of the most influential British artists of the past century (critic Jonathan Jones asserts she’s “the only British painter to change the history of abstract art), the exhibition coincides with the celebration of Riley’s 90th birthday. Spanning the last 60 years of work, it charts her articulations of movement and scientific applications of space and colour in a diverse selection of 2D prints, paintings and more.
Greens & Blues with Red Orange Contrasts (1985) and Large Fragment (2006), on loan from Moniker Projects at The Lightbox from December 18, 2021 to April 10, 2022.
