This is the first solo exhibition of Anthony Hill’s work at Annely Juda Fine Art and his first in 20 years. It includes both his signature relief constructions and collage works by his Dadaist alter ego, Redo. The exhibition will be across two floors and will run from 18th May – 8th July 2023.
Anthony Hill (1930–2020) was a seminal figure in British art. He was a founding member and principal theorist of the Constructionists, a group promoting the new post-war abstraction centred around Victor Pasmore. By the mid-1950s, he had abandoned painting for relief construction. Embracing Duchamp’s idea of the readymade, Hill used industrial materials such as copper, aluminium and perspex to propose a radical view of structure in art. He was featured in the group exhibition This is Tomorrow at the Whitechapel Gallery, London, in 1956, had his first solo exhibition at the Institute of Contemporary Art, London, in January 1958, and participated in Max Bill’s Konkrete Kunst exhibition in Zurich in 1960, exhibiting in survey shows worldwide thereafter. In 1983 he had a major retrospective at the Hayward Gallery, London.
