‘An Exhibit’



We recently scanned a set of deteriorating transparencies and came across this. It shows one of the Fathers of Pop Art, Richard Hamilton, and his fellow King’s College Fine Art lecturer, Victor Pasmore, hanging their ground-breaking exhibition ‘An Exhibit’ in the Hatton Gallery in 1957. The exhibition consisted of hanging perspex sheets which formed a visual ‘maze’.  Hamilton and Pasmore  pioneered a new method of art training at Newcastle and mounted a series of ground- breaking exhibitions between 1953 and 1966.
