‘Bridget Riley: Perceptual Abstraction’ Opens at the Yale Center for British Art in New Haven, Connecticut
The op art visionary’s investigation of color and geometry is the subject of a sweeping seven-decade survey that runs March 3 through July 24 at the Yale Center for British Art in New Haven, Connecticut. “Bridget Riley: Perceptual Abstraction” spotlights some 50 paradigm-shifting paintings, plexiglass prints, gouache studies, and more by the London-born nonagenarian. The exhibition, overtaking two floors of the Louis Kahn–designed landmark, charts the evolution of Riley’s oeuvre, from black-and-white compositions, such as Blaze 4, a 1964 synthetic emulsion on board, to the tonal modulations and saturated statements of later work, including New Day, a 1988 oil on canvas. In a word: phenomenal.
