Kettle’s Yard in New Places and Spaces – Celebrating 50 years as part of the University of Cambridge 

This exhibition draws on Kettle’s Yard’s extensive collection holdings of abstract painting, collages and prints that date from the 1960s to the 1980s. Artists who have variously used abstract forms, colours, symbols and words in their works such as British painter Roger Hilton, Italian painter and collagist Italo Valenti, and Czech-born artist and poet Jiří Kolář are included in the exhibition. The latest dated work on display is a quickly executed vibrant painting by Helen Frankenthaler (1928-2011) who was one of the defining artists of American Abstract Expressionism in the late 1940s and 1950s.
