Bridget Riley @ Museum für Gegenwartskunst Siegen, Germany

Bridget Riley was recently awarded the prestigious Reubens prize and in honour of that The Museum für Gegenwartskunst Siegen, Germany is holding an exhibition of her work.  The pieces on display are from 1980 onwards and take up 12 rooms of the museum.  The exhibition runs from 1st July through to 11th November 2012.  It goes without saying that if you are anywhere near Seigen, this is one that should not be missed.

 “Bridget Riley herself conceptualized the exhibition in the Museum für Gegenwartskunst Siegen, which features work groups from 1980 on. In these groups of works, various strategies of lining up and intertwining stripes, rhomboid and curved figures, but also circles are presented. Riley has chosen a special form of presentation. By positioning juxtapositions of two or three pictures in a total of 12 museum rooms she intensifies the effects of color and shape through comparison. The result is an exciting and invigorating visual experience. The exhibition also includes two wall-sized paintings and a drawing encompassing an entire wall.”
