The Corn Hall is proud to present a survey of Bridget Riley’s screenprints to coincide with her major retrospective at the Hayward Gallery, London (28 October – 26 January) which has attracted 5-star reviews. Like the Hayward show, but in a more modest fashion, our exhibition covers the various stages in Riley’s career from her first exhibition to her more recent work – a span of 6 decades.  

Riley’s name is synonymous with the Swinging Sixties, yet it was a chance encounter with gallery owner Victor Musgrave, who championed ‘outsider art’ and gave Riley her first exhibition at Gallery One in London in 1962, that propelled her to fame.   

Riley’s work was immediately identified with the Op Art movement; abstract art that employed optical illusions. The unsettling visual impact of her work led to her becoming an international star in a few short years. 

The exhibition will track from her most identifiable black and white work from the ‘60s, though her use of colour in the ‘70s to her more complex recent images.  

David Case, curator, comments that “Riley only made a few black and white screen prints, which were early in her career and we are privileged in being able to show a selection of these, including her most famous image ‘Movement in Squares’, alongside the colour prints which reflect her evolving styles from later decades.”  

Bridget Riley summarised her development: “In all my work – right from the beginning – each step I take develops out of what came before”. 

Some of the work will be for sale.
