Metamorphosis. British Art of the sixties

Works from the Collections of the British Council and the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation. English edition

Revolution of styles in British art from the sixties

This is the catalogue of the exhibition staged in 2005 by the Basil and Elise Goulandris Foundation in Athens entitled Metamorphosis, after one of Bridget Riley’s early works (1964), included in the rich selection of artworks on show to the public. Curated by Richard Riley and Ana Vasconcelos e Melo, it reveals the great transformations that occurred, especially in the visual arts, in the fervently creative period of the 1960s.
During those years of economic prosperity and intense social revolution, Great Britain, and London in particular, played a key role in forming innovative means of expression and new iconographic languages.
Drawn from the rich reserves of the collections of the British Council of London and the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation of Lisbon, the exhibition presents work by thirty-one artists to show the rich diversity of the ‘swinging’ sixties - from Pop to Op, hard-edge abstraction, figurative and non-figurative - in painting, sculpture, prints and works on paper, all beautifully illustrated in this accompanying catalogue.

The artists: David Annesley, Gillian Ayers, Peter Blake, Michael Bolus, Derek Boshier, Anthony Caro, Patrick Caulfield, Bernard Cohen, Barrie Cook, Robyn Denny, Antony Donaldson, Garth Evans, Richard Hamilton, David Hockney, Howard Hodgkin, John Hoyland, Paul Huxley, Allen Jones, Michael Kidner, Phillip King, Jeremy Moon, Eduardo Paolozzi, Peter Phillips, John Plumb, Bridget Riley, Peter Sedgley, Colin Self, Richard Smith, Ian Stephenson, Joe Tilson and Isaac Witkin.
