Tom Hunter’s photograph Fall of the Night will feature in the University of Warwick Art collection tour, at the Mead Gallery, Warwick.
Tuesday the 5th of December 11am-12pm Mead Gallery, Warwick Arts Centre
This tour will focus on works which relate to the current exhibition Kaleidoscope.
British art of the 1960s is noted for its bold, artificial colour, alluring surfaces and capricious shapes and forms, yet these exuberant qualities are often underpinned by a strong sense of order, founded on repetition, sequence and symmetry. Kaleidoscope looks across media and movements – from 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 – to find a common language shaped by sequence and symmetry.
This exhibition brings together outstanding examples of painting and sculpture from the Arts Council Collection and other major UK collections. It brings into focus the relationship between colour and form, rationality and irrationality, order and waywardness in art of the 1960s and through the work of over twenty artists including: David Annesley, Anthony Caro, Robyn Denny, Tess Jaray, Phillip King, Kim Lim, Mary Martin, Eduardo Paolozzi, Bridget Riley, Tim Scott, Richard Smith, William Tucker and William Turnbull.
