More Information

The exhibition coincides with a display at Tate Britain looking at the work of Hudson and other Basic Design innovators including Richard Hamilton, Victor Pasmore and Harry Thubron. The YSP exhibition shows how Hudson and a group of young artist-collaborators went on to extend the utopian language of Basic Design through exuberant and irreverent use of modern materials and ground-breaking experiments in performance and installation art.

Featuring work by Laurie Burt, Michael Chilton, John Gingell, Tom Hudson, Victor Newsome, Robin Page, Michael Sandle, Terry Setch and Norman Toynton, the exhibition looks at the ways the boundaries between art education and art practice were blurred in a vibrant moment of experimentation.

A small exhibition of work in the National Arts Education Archive (NAEA) at YSP which accompanied Transitions is open until 5 November 2013, Saturday–Tuesday 11.00–15.00. For more information email or call +44 (0)1924 830690
