See a rare retrospective of Bridget Riley’s work covering the op artist’s 70-year career, at the Hayward Gallery

Famous for her optical paintings that play tricks on the eye, Riley's works span the 1950s until the present day, including new wall paintings specifically created for the gallery. 

See Riley's famous black-and-white paintings from the 1960s, including Movement in Squares and Pause. Also keep an eye out for colourful 1980s and 1990s creations such as High Sky and the British artist’s only three-dimensional work Continuum

This exhibition, which is the first major UK retrospective of Riley’s work for 16 years, is run in conjunction with the National Galleries of Scotland, which has loaned various works including mesmerising circular painting Blaze 1.
