Sean Scully: 1970 A major retrospective

About

A major retrospective presented across the Laing Art Gallery and the Hatton Gallery.  Sean Scully is renowned globally as the master of post-minimalist abstraction and began to develop his iconic style whilst studying Fine Art at Newcastle University from 1968-1972. 

This major retrospective exhibition revisits two seminal sites in his career: Newcastle and Liverpool, and demonstrates the remarkable confidence of Scully’s earlier works and his continued fascination with stripes and the spaces in between. 

Now in his seventies, Scully has been twice shortlisted for the Turner Prize and his work is in the collection of virtually every major museum around the world.
