Eduardo Paolozzi - General Dynamic F.U.N

A Hayward Touring exhibition of screen-prints by Eduardo Paolozzi opened at The Granary Gallery in Berwick-upon-Tweed as part of a national tour. Sir Eduardo Paolozzi (1924–2005), one of the pioneers of the pop art movement in the UK, was born in Scotland.


General Dynamic F.U.N, a series of fifty screenprints and photolithographs created between 1965 and 1970 in which Paolozzi employed the technologies of mass-reproduction and gorged on its idols – the household names and familiar faces of consumer advertising, high fashion and Hollywood. The artist's friend and sometime collaborator, J.G. Ballard, described General Dynamic F.U.N as a 'unique guidebook to the electric garden of our minds'.
