An Empire of Silly Statistics… A Fake War for Public Relations

The new major retrospective exhibition, Eduardo Paolozzi: Collaging Culture opened on the 6th July 2013 at Pallant House Gallery. Featuring around 150 works in a variety of media, the exhibition explores the importance of collage as a working process within his career, not only in the traditional sense of paper collage, but also in terms of sculptural assemblage, printmaking and filmmaking.
