Bridget RileyBest known for her visually arresting Op art, 87-year-old British artist Bridget Riley is the subject of a major retrospective at the Hayward Gallery this autumn. Opening in October 2019, this comprehensive exhibition is the first museum survey of Riley's work to be held in the UK for 16 years. The exhibition, of early representational paintings, iconic black-and-white paintings of the 1960s and expansive canvases in colour, focuses on the origins of Riley's perceptual paintings, and traces pivotal, decisive moments in her career. As well as her best known canvases, the exhibition also includes the only three dimensional work that the artist ever realised, Continuum (1963), as well as new wall paintings made specially for the Hayward Gallery.
