This weekend saw the opening of the Beaney’s latest Special Exhibition, Home And Away: Eduardo Paolozzi’s General Dynamic F.U.N and photographs of SE England by Tony Ray-Jones.
Created in the 1960s, General Dynamic F.U.N is one of Eduardo Paolozzi’s great print series, bringing together clashing images culled from magazines to create bold, provocative collages. At the same time, Tony Ray-Jones was drawing inspiration from the new American photography that he had absorbed during a long stay.
Outside the gallery is a suitably groovy display of Sixties themed goodies to admire and purchase. From robot egg cups to Paolozzi prints, there is truly something for everyone…
