Space Age Archaeology: Eduardo Paolozzi and Science Fiction
20 July – 27 October 2013
A key figure in British Pop art, Leith-born artist Eduardo Paolozzi accumulated source material from all areas of popular culture; however, it was popular science fiction which particularly influenced the imagery of the prints, sculptures and books he produced. This display explores the links between Paolozzi’s art and the world of science fiction, presenting his prints, sculpture and books alongside some of the objects and toys that inspired him.
