We are very excited to have this new Hayward Touring Exhibition of screen-prints by Eduardo Paolozzi coming to Bridport Arts Centre.

Sir Eduardo Paolozzi (1924 – 2005) was one of the pioneers of the pop art movement in the UK. Born in Scotland, Paolozzi was a compulsive collector and a jumbler of icons. He is equally revered for his mechanistic sculptures and his kaleidoscopic print projects.

Paolozzi's canny alchemy is vividly apparent in General Dynamic F.U.N, a series of 50 screen-prints and photolithographs created between 1965 and 1970.

The artist, who described himself as 'a wizard in Toytown', transformed the mundane, the derelict and the mass-produced into images that zap with electric eclecticism and impress with their graphic complexity. This exhibition is not to be missed!
