Bridget Riley's seminal paintings from the 1960s are landmark works esteemed by repute but not often seen. This exhibition brings together these historic works with others from the later 1960s and 1970s to chart the early career of this highly influential but too-little-known artist. In addition, Riley has executed a new site-specific wall drawing for Dia's fourth-floor galleries
