About

For more than 60 years, Bridget Riley has created dazzling and compelling abstract paintings which explore the fundamental nature of perception. She is one of the most distinguished and world-renowned artists working today. The Scottish National Gallery 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. Lucy Askew, Chief Curator, Modern & Contemporary Art, National Galleries of Scotland, will explore Riley’s work, the origins of her practice and will trace pivotal moments across her acclaimed career.

We would also like to remind Friends that all blue badge parking has been suspended on the Mound Precinct.  We apologise for the inconvenience caused by this and please be assured that we aim to re-instate the bays as soon as possible.
