The inaugural meeting of the Independent Group at the ICA in
April 1952 has gained mythical status as one of the seminal
moments in the development of Pop art in Britain when
Paolozzi presented his now-celebrated series of collages
drawn from American adverts, science fiction and American
magazines. The collages suggested a radical new aesthetic,
which, before the end of the decade, was to form the basis of
pop art. The art historian John Paul Stonard explores this key
moment in the development of Pop art in Britain.
