Bridget Riley's Legacy

Bridget Riley received a B.A. from the Royal College of Art in 1955 and won the AICA Critic’s Prize in at the John Moore’s Liverpool exhibition in London in 1963. More invitations for exhibitions followed soon.

In 1965, Bridget Riley, along with Peter Sedgley with whom she was living and working, and journalist Peter Townsend, founded the artist group SPACE (Space Provision Artistic Cultural and Educational) in 1968. It was a group who strived to provide affordable studio space to young painters.

That same year, she exhibits her work in the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. She participates in documentas IV in 1968 and in 1965 attends the Venice Biennale as a representative of Great Britain. She became the first British contemporary painter and was the first woman to win the International Prize for Painting.

She receives an Honorary Doctorate from the University of Manchester in 1976 and participates again in documentas VI in 1977. More Honorary Doctorates followed. She received an Honorary Doctorate from University of Ulster in 1986, Oxford University in 1994, Cambridge University in 1995, De Montfort University in 1996, and the University of Exeter in 1997.

It doesn't end here. The list of Bridget's accomplishments in life and work is not only extensive, but very impressive as well!
