This two day event celebrates the Independent Group's legacy at the very institution which first fostered and encouraged it. The Group represents a key moment in the history of British art and architecture. Contributors explore the history and legacy of the Independent Group in relation to art, architecture, design, material culture, photography and critical theory.
The main aim of the conference is to bring together researchers from around the world who are working on aspects of the Independent Group, to pool their knowledge about this historical phenomenon, and share this with a more general audience.
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 Victoria 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.
