Eduardo Paolozzi: General Dynamic F.U.N.
A Hayward Gallery Touring Exhibition from Southbank Centre, London
11 January – 9 February
Paolozzi’s canny alchemy is vividly apparent in General Dynamic F.U.N, a series of fifty screen prints and photolithographs created between 1965 and 1970. Here Paolozzi employs the technologies of mass-reproduction and gorges on its idols – the household names and familiar faces of consumer advertising, high fashion and Hollywood. The artist’s friend and sometime collaborator, J.G. Ballard, described General Dynamic F.U.N as a ‘unique guidebook to the electric garden of our minds’.
