Kaleidoscope: British 1960s Art at the Longside Gallery

Glorious morning, so set off early for the Yorkshire Sculpture Park and decided to walk to the Longside Galley which is a good thirty minute walk from the main centre at the park.

Arrived at the gallery at 10.30 to find that it did not open until 11.00am, however, the very kind lady setting up the coffee stall said we could have some coffee if we waited for teen minutes whilst the machine heated up

The reason for my visit was to see the new exhibition entitled “Kaleidoscope: Colour and Sequence in 1960s British Art. Bringing together exceptional examples of painting and sculpture from the Arts Council Collection, and augmented with major loans from important UK collections, Kaleidoscope examines the art of the 1960s through a fresh and surprising lens, one bringing into direct view the relationship between colour and form, rationality and irrationality, order and waywardness.”
As a child of the 60s I viewed the collection expecting memories to come flooding back to me about music, psychedelia and some of the significant changes in society that took place…………alas, not a lot did. Some of the pop art on display I remember but I have to say I was rather unenthused about the exhibition. Below are some of the art works on display and I leave you to judge. Do pay it a visit as it is worth the effort.
