About this exhibition

Much British art of the 1960s is noted for its bold, artificial colour, alluring surfaces and quirky shapes and forms. This exhibition at the Walker Art Gallery explored the relationship between colour and form, rationality and irrationality, and sequence and symmetry.

Works on show included sculptures by artists such as Eduardo Paolozzi, Anthony Caro, Kim Lim and Phillip King, alongside paintings by Bridget Riley, Tess Jaray, Joe Tilson and Mary Martin among others.

The exhibition included 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 abstract units  in New Generation sculpture. 

Representing more than 20 artists, 'Kaleidoscope' brought together artworks from the Arts Council Collection and other significant collections.
