Spring Show 1

Serpentine South Gallery 25 Feb — 19 Mar 1978 Free

The first of two group exhibitions for the spring of 1978, featuring six artists.

Curated by David Annesley, this exhibition included was a selection of William Crozier’s works completed over the previous 18 months concerned with landscape – particularly the landscape around Winchester.

Most of Clyde Hopkins’s work in the show revolved around two themes: “Firstly, the centre and its surroundings, connections with its edges, and secondly, object-like statements accommodated in flatness or pattern.” This description perhaps characterises the abstract nature of many of the paintings and sculptures in the exhibition.
