About this tour

Docent Susan Cayer-Stout presents an online tour of Bridget Riley: Perceptual Abstraction. Now on view at the museum, this exhibition is the largest survey of work by British abstract artist Bridget Riley in the United States in more than twenty years. For seven decades, Riley (b. 1931) has explored line, form, shape, pattern, and color to create dynamic works of art that pulse, shift, and glow with energy and movement. Along with discussing works on view in the exhibition, Cayer-Stout explores the evolution of and influences on Riley’s impressive career.
