Narrative Paintings: Figurative art of two generations
09.02.80 – 29.03.80
Exhibition selected by artist Timothy Hyman, aiming to reassess some of the painting that emerged in the sixties as ‘Pop Art’, to draw wider attention to individual artists whose work, Hyman felt, deserved to be better known, and to find out what was happening among younger painters, by inviting them to send work.
Artists included: Howard Hodgkin, R. B. Kitaj, Eduardo Paolozzi, David Hockney, Michael Andrews, Jeffery Camp, Anthony Green, Peter de Francia, Maggi Hambling, Ken Kiff, Bhupen Khakhar, Peter Darach, Wynn Jones, Peter Sylveire, Michael Lawson, Timothy Hyman, George Lewis, Andrzei Jackowski, Paul Butler, Gillian Barlow, and Alexander Moffat.
Toured from Arnolfini (Bristol), ICA (London), and City Museum and Art Gallery (Stoke-on-Trent).
