Bridget Riley's Dedication Visual Arts Building Albion College (1966) is a monochromatic poster announcing the titular lecture, released in an edition of 100 signed lithographs. The print’s isometric arrangement of disjointed, paired, and rotated circle segments identifies it clearly with the Op-Art genre, as an illusory triangular pattern emerges.
This lithograph, much like Riley’s entire oeuvre, is the result of lengthy mathematical preparatory sketching. Thus, there is both a method and rhythm to the seeming chaos. The poster advertises a lecture relating to the exhibition, Art Of Two Cities, Kansas - Minneapolis, at Albion College, in the USA. This print was released following the 1965 The Responsive Eye exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, which included the work of Riley, and propelled the British artist to international fame. Her optically dazzling works captured the public consciousness, who were captivated by their dizzying, unstabling effects. Just two years later, in 1968, Riley would be awarded the International Painting Prize at the Venice Biennale. Therefore, this lithograph represents a pivotal moment in Riley’s career, following which she would go on to continuously re-define modern painting.
