This public event marks the opening of the Peter Scott Gallery's next exhibition (which then runs from 23 November - 17 December 2010), and also the celebration of the gallery's recent award of Full Accreditation status from the Museums, Libraries and Archives Council (MLA). The event is opened by Professor Tony McEnery, Dean of FASS, and the gallery's Exhibitions Officer Richard Smith.
A compulsive collector, a jumbler of icons and a pioneer of Pop, Sir Eduardo Paolozzi (1924 - 2005) is equally revered for his mechanistic sculptures and his kaleidoscopic print projects.General Dynamic F.U.N is a series of fifty screenprints and photolithographs created between 1965 and 1970, for which Paolozzi employs the technologies of mass-reproduction and gorges on its idols - the household names and familiar faces of consumer advertising, high fashion and Hollywood. For Paolozzi, the modern age, exposed as ephemera, is a necessarily fragmented collision of visual stimulus and influence.
