Anthony Hill - 5 Decades
|Publisher||Annely Juda Fine Art|
Anthony Hill (1930-2020) was a seminal figure in British art. He was a founding member and principal theorist of the Constructionists, a group promoting the new post-war abstraction, centred around Victor Pasmore. By the mid-1950s he had abandoned painting for relief construction. Embracing Duchamp's idea of the readymade, Hill used industrial materials such as copper, aluminium, and perspex to propose a radical view of structure in art. He featured in the group exhibition This is Tomorrow at the Whitechapel Gallery, London, in 1956, had his first solo exhibition at the Institute of Contemporary Art, London, in January 1958, and participated in Max Bill's Konkrete Kunst exhibition in Zurich in 1960, exhibiting in survey shows worldwide thereafter.
