Summer Show 3 [1971]: Impressionism, Cubism, Expressionism, Constructivism: Optimism

5–26 Jun 1970 Free

This was the third exhibition in the Serpentine Gallery’s summer programme for 1971.

Christopher Coles and Paul Martin each showed work on the Serpentine Gallery’s lawn, while Telfer Stokes, Rick Oginz, Susan Tebby, John Claridge, and Kate Barnard (now Kate Westbrook) each exhibited work in one of the Serpentine’s five galleries.

A variety of photographic prints by John Claridge were on display in the Print Gallery and Rick Oginz’s recent works in wood could be found in the West Gallery and continued outside. These pieces included Four Foot Six High, Fifty Foot Wall Slice and Ziggurat. Oginz wrote in his artist’s statement: “The relationship between science and art has been my obsession in the last few years. My concern is to provide visual models which deal with some of the implications of modern Physics.”
