Liliane Lijn is a leading pioneer and exponent of kinetic art: this exhibition featured works from 1959 to the early 1980s, selected to present a microcosm of the scope of her on-going explorations and experiments with light, movement, words, film, liquids and industrial materials.

Lijn’s work featured in the Tate exhibitions A Summer of Love (2005) and This Was Tomorrow: Art and the ’60s (2004). In 2005, an important mid-career retrospective of her work was held at the Mead Gallery, University of Warwick Arts Centre. The exhibition, curated by Dr David Alan Mellor, was accompanied by the publication of his monograph. This exhibition at

England & Co was selected by Dr Mellor in collaboration with Jane England and provided a London launch for this important book.
