Kaleidoscope: Colour and Sequence in 1960s British Art
June 2017 - June 2018
Longside Gallery, Yorkshire Sculpture Park, UK; Nottingham Lakeside Arts, University of Nottingham, UK; Mead Gallery, Warwick Arts Centre, University of Warwick, UK; Walker Art Gallery, National Museums Liverpool, UK

British art of the 1960s is noted for its bold, artificial colour, alluring surfaces and capricious shapes and forms, yet these exuberant qualities are often underpinned by a strong sense of order, founded on repetition, sequence and symmetry. Bringing together outstanding examples of painting and sculpture from the Arts Council Collection and other major UK collections, Kaleidoscope examines 1960s visual art through a fresh and surprising lens, bringing into view the relationship between colour and form, rationality and irrationality, order and waywardness.

The National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, Australia

The NGV presents a major solo exhibition of one of Australia’s most popular artists, Del Kathryn Barton. Del Kathryn Barton: The Highway is a Disco reveals the artist’s imaginative and deeply sensuous world, where ornately decorated species – both human and animal – are rendered in seductive line and colour. Del Kathryn Barton: The Highway is a Disco is a survey of new and recent work by the two times Archibald Portrait Prize winner that reveals the breadth of Barton’s practice. Featuring comprehensive displays of recent paintings and drawings for which she is arguably best known, the exhibition also includes collage, sculpture, textiles and film, all drawn together by the artist’s exuberant and psychedelic aesthetic.

Ed Moses, Pioneer of West Coast art, Dies at 91
ED MOSES (1926-2018)
 
albertz benda is deeply saddened to announce that legendary Los Angeles artist and cultural icon Ed Moses has died at 91. Moses passed away peacefully of natural causes at his Venice, California home and studio on Wednesday, January 17th, 2018.
 
In a career that spanned seven decades, Moses received national and international recognition for his practice known for its restless intensity and ever-evolving style. Considered one of Los Angeles’s most innovative painters and a central figure in the city’s art scene, Moses often referred to himself as a “mutator”, driven less by the desire for self-expression than by an insatiable curiosity to explore and discover.
