Bridget Riley: Paintings from the 1960s to the Present
A retrospective exhibition looking at the impressive career of British artist Bridget Riley at the Kawamura Memorial DIC Museum of Art in Chiba. Riley is one of the most recognizable and respected names of the Op Art (optical art) movement which thrived in the 1960s. Known for her stunning abstract paintings comprised of geometric shapes and patterns, working only in black and white between 1960 and 1967, and later utilizing color in her unique and spectacular style. The exhibition features around 30 pieces including examples from her monochrome, “stripes” and “curves” periods. This marks the first large-scale exhibition of Riley’s work in Japan since 1980.
