The Pick of the Permanent Collection to Celebrate the 25th Anniversary

Organised by the Mead Gallery

Sat 4 May – Sat 6 Jul 1991

The University of Warwick started collecting from the very early days of its foundation. It is a tradition it has maintained and one of which it has every reason to be proud. The intention appears always to have been to collect contemporary work and the collection reflects very accurately, changes in taste and style over the past twenty five years.

The abstracts of Patrick Heron, Terry Frost and Tess Jaray, the Op and Pop Art of Bridget Riley, Peter Blake and RB Kitaj have been succeeded by works by Andy Goldsworthy, Keir Smith and Peter Randall-Page, artists whose inspiration stems from nature.
