It’s 60 years since the Independent Group first met, and the work is attracting increased attention on an international scale. This two-day event celebrates the Independent Group’s legacy at the very institution which first fostered and encouraged it. Contributors explore the history and legacy of the Independent Group in relation to art, architecture, design, material culture, photography and critical theory.
Curated by Anne Massey, speakers include Juan Arribas, Benjamin H.D. Buchloh, Beatriz Colomina, Barry Curtis, Ben Cranfield, Charlie Gere, Dirk van den Heuvel, Ben Highmore, Richard Hornsey, Stephen Kite, Alex Seago, John-Paul Stonard, Kim Tyler and Vicky Walsh. There will also be film screenings, including unseen excerpts from the Turnbull Studio film, Beyond Time, and a BUNK display in the ICA Studio.
The event represents the first stage of a collaboration between The School of Art and Design History at Kingston University and the ICA, and is supported by the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art.
