For more than 60 years, Bridget Riley (b.1931) has created dazzling and compelling abstract paintings which explore the fundamental nature of perception. Through her observations of the natural world, her experience of looking at the work of other artists, and through her own experimentation, Riley has made a deep, personal investigation of the act of painting, and of how we see. She is one of the most distinguished and world-renowned artists working today.

This comprehensive exhibition will be the first museum survey of Riley's work to be held in the UK for 16 years, and the first of its kind in Scotland. Spanning over 70 years of work, it will place particular emphasis on the origins of Riley's practice and will trace pivotal moments across her acclaimed career. It will feature early paintings and drawings, iconic black-and-white works of the 1960s, Riley's expansive explorations into colour, wall paintings and recent works, as well as studies that reveal Riley's working methods.
