DESCRIPTION

Collage has been at the centre of artistic practice since the beginning of the twentieth century. In its simplest form, whether pasted, painted, assembled or constructed, the technique represented a radical restructuring of the pictorial tradition. Through Surrealism and Pop Art, it evolved from a marginal and purely synthetic process to become an intrinsic part of the modern aesthetic. This exhibition will explore the role of collage in the trajectory of modern British art through collage, prints and paintings by John Piper, Ben Nicholson, Eileen Agar, Edward Burra and Paul Nash to Eduardo Paolozzi, Nigel Henderson, Richard Hamilton, Peter Blake and John Stezaker.
