Kaleidoscope: Colour and Sequence in 1960s British Art exhibition, opens 24 February

Walker Art Gallery William Brown Street, L3, 24 February – 3 June

British art in the 1960s is renowned for its clever use of vivid colours, unpredictable forms and repetitive patterns. This new exhibition at the Walker Art Gallery explores the relationship between colour and form, rationality and irrationality, and sequence and symmetry.

Works on show include sculptures by artists such as Eduardo Paolozzi, Anthony Caro, Phillip King and Tim Scott, alongside paintings by Bridget Riley, Tess Jaray, Joe Tilson and Richard Smith among others.

The exhibition includes the mind-bending surfaces of op art, the repeated imagery of pop art, the mathematical order of Constructivism, and the sequential placement of brightly-coloured free-standing artworks in New Generation sculpture.

Representing more than 20 artists, ‘Kaleidoscope’ brings together artworks from the Arts Council Collection and other major UK collections.
