Recreated by the ICA as part of its Richard Hamilton at the ICA exhibition, an Exhibit (1957) was originally conceived by Hamilton in close collaboration with writer-critic Lawrence Alloway and artist Victor Pasmore for the ICA's original premises at Dover Street in London. Organised around a modular hanging system, a kit of suspended Perspex panels was devised to be freely configured whilst installing, with the intention of giving visitors opportunity ‘to generate their own compositions' as they walked through. This half-day symposium considers the pioneering an Exhibit in the wider context of Hamilton's practice and its wide-reaching impact, from the canons of curatorial practice, to questions of artist as curator, notions of display and artistic practice itself. Speakers include Dr Victoria Walsh, Head of the Curating Contemporary Art Programme at the RCA, Dr Elena Crippa, co-Pathway Leader for MRes Art: Exhibition Studies at Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London, Sabine Folie, Artistic and Managing Director of the Generali Foundation, Vienna, Keith Wilson, artist, and Jeremy Millar, artist and tutor in Critical Writing in Art and Design, RCA, London.
