Bridget Riley created between 1980 and ’85, a series of strip paintings, including the “Achæan” (1981)

For 2020, the Tate Britain forth plans we plan to transfer your entire collection “from below”, the image texts are re-written and presented so far, little attention to art, more, announces Schlieker. It was not only the colonial heritage of the collection critically, but also issues such as Gender and skin color will be re-evaluated. “We are trying everything to shake up, and the art of rewriting history to a large extent.”
