Seeing in Colour: Works from British Council Collection
04 November, 2010

The British Council in partnership with the State Academy of Arts offers a unique opportunity to discover the contemporary British art On November 3. “Seeing in Colour” is an exhibition of works from the rich and versatile British Council collection at the Academy of Fine Art’s.
“Seeing in Colour” is an exhibition of prints from the 1960s to the present day.
Visitors will have a chance to view contemporary pieces by some of British and world’s leading artists such as

Damien Hirst, Alan Davie, Patrick Caulfield, Paul Huxley, Patrick Heron, along with the works by Eduardo Paolozzi and John Hoyland.
Moreover, on November 4 and 6 the students of the Academy of Arts will have an inciting chance to participate in creative workshops organised by the British Council and run by Sarah Gillet, skilled printmaker. Sara Gillett says, “We will be using acrylic plates in the workshop, and will explore both monotype and monoprint techniques. Monotype allows us to create images by building up layers of colour and texture without etching or marking the base plate. We will then go on to explore monoprint techniques, in which we scratch lines, cut the plates or press patterns into the plate to make a permanent mark. Each student will be given two acrylic plates to work with, so in addition we will look at registration and layering techniques. We will experiment with layering more than one student’s images to produce dynamic mark-making. We will also explore examples of artists’ work from the exhibition to inspire students and contextualise the workshops”.
The British Council has been collecting works of art, craft and design for more than sixty years http://collection.britishcouncil.org/common. Started in the late 1930s, the collection has now grown to become one of the most impressive public collections with more than 8000 artworks covering all media and all aspects of British art and design of the 20th and 21st Centuries. The British Council Collection has no permanent gallery and has been referred to as a ‘Museum without Walls’. The collection aims to promote the achievements and creative ideas of the UK artists, craft practitioners and designers.
The exhibition of the works from the British Council collection will be held at the Academy of Arts from 3 to 17 November, 2010.
