About Tom Hudson: Transitions
This exhibition looked at the radical interaction of art and education in the 1960s, focusing on the work of Tom Hudson, a key figure in the Basic Design movement, which revolutionised art education across Britain in the 1950s and 1960s.
The exhibition coincided with a display at Tate Britain looking at the work of Hudson and other Basic Design innovators including Richard Hamilton, Victor Pasmore and Harry Thubron. The YSP exhibition showed how Hudson and a group of young artist-collaborators went on to extend the utopian language of Basic Design through exuberant and irreverent use of modern materials and ground-breaking experiments in performance and installation art.
Featuring work by Laurie Burt, Michael Chilton, John Gingell, Tom Hudson, Victor Newsome, Robin Page, Michael Sandle, Terry Setch and Norman Toynton, the exhibition looked at the ways the boundaries between art education and art practice were blurred in a vibrant moment of experimentation.
