Make It New: Modern British Art
Make It New opens at Frieze Masters on 11 October and builds on previous gallery 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. The exhibition features many of the leading post war British artists, ranging from the plexiglass prints of Bridget Riley to Henry Moore’s sculpture cast in lead, carved relief board by Ben Nicholson to plaster and iron sculptures by Lynn Chadwick. The accompanying catalogue has an extensive text by Dr Judith LeGrove. 88pp.
