Frestonian Gallery is delighted to present an exhibition of works by Sir Eduardo Paolozzi (1924-2005). Born in Edinburgh, Paolozzi became a titan of British and international art in the second half of the 20th Century. Popularly considered one of the true founders of Pop Art, he continued to innovate as well as inspire other artists throughout his long and extraordinary life.
The works at Century Club focus in particular his prolific print-making practice – and include several editions referring directly to his much-celebrated murals at nearby Tottenham Court Road Station – which have recently been the subject of a huge conservation project by TFL’s Art On The Underground.
Paolozzi was knighted in 1989 and has been the focus of major institutional solo exhibitions at, amongst others, the Victoria & Albert Museum; Nationalgalerie, Berlin; the Royal Academy; and most recently this year at The Whitechapel Gallery. His work is held in most major western public collections, including MOMA, the Tate Gallery and the National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh.
Eduardo Paolozzi at Century is proudly sponsored by Renaissance Vodka.
Please join us for the private view in the Tap Room on Saturday 7th April 5 - 8pm.
