Visual Arts: Pick of the Week
Tuesday 11 June 1996
The annual jamboree is here once again, and, despite the cancellation of an Academy-initiated symposium on its relevance to contemporary art, looks somewhat healthier than in previous years. Highlights include works by Stephen Cox, Gary Wragg, Barbara Rae (above) and Carel Weight.
Royal Academy, Burlington House, London W1 (0171-439 7438). To 18 Aug
A fascinating and thoughtfully selected exploration of the work of the Euston Road painter who in the 1940s turned constructive abstractionist. Often unjustly passed over today as out of tune with the Zeitgeist, Pasmore this year celebrates his 88th birthday and is, happily, still at work after a half-century in the business.
De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill (01424 212023). To 28 July
Conroy Maddox and Emmy Bridgewater
Two more aged artists, but none the worse for that. He is the more celebrated, but both are worth more than a passing look. A good opportunity to see the work of the last surviving members of the Birmingham group of British surrealists.
Blond Fine Art, London N1 (0171-739 4383). Friday to 14 July
