ARTIST IN FOCUS: BRIDGET RILEY NOW BOOKING
Wednesday 30 October 2019
Bridget Riley was the first woman to win the International Prize for painting at the Venice Biennale and her distinguished career encompasses over 50 years of uncompromising and remarkable innovation. Her dazzling work has been celebrated for both its beauty and lyricism as well is its distinctive and disorienting optical effects.
The study day features a guided visit to the Bridget Riley exhibition at the Hayward Gallery. It will be led by Anna Moszynska, whose book Abstract Art is being reissued by Thames & Hudson in an enlarged and updated edition next year. The morning will consist of talks and informal discussion to help set Riley’s work in context, and will be followed by a tour of the exhibition in the afternoon.
