Make It New: Modern British Art
12th October 2023
Over the years Osborne Samuel Gallery has become well known for a series of ambitious exhibitions of Modern British art with accompanying publications. The experience of Peter Osborne, Gordon Samuel and myself in this area was further reinforced when Matthew Bradbury joined the gallery in 2022.
Make It New builds on previous exhibitions, looking anew at the progressive and innovative approach to materials and processes in post war British Art. It is not a uniform linear progression of one school but a kaleidoscope of ideas, materials and methods, where texture, colour, shape and form evolve in ever demanding, unique and surprising ways.
