Eduardo Paolozzi-General Dynamic F.U.N.

19 January-3 March

'General Dynamic F.U.N.' presents 50 screen prints and photolithographs by the pioneer of Pop Art, Sir Eduardo Paolozzi (1924-2005). 

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

Here Paolozzi employs the technologies of mass-reproduction and gorges on its idols – the household names and familiar faces of consumer advertising, high fashion and Hollywood. The artist's friend and sometime collaborator, J.G. Ballard, described General Dynamic F.U.N as a 'unique guidebook to the electric garden of our minds'.

A  Hayward Gallery Touring exhibition of screen-prints by Eduardo Paolozzi will open at The Brampton Museum as part of a national tour.
