Paolozzi and Artists' Textiles in the 1950s and 60s (Talk)

Thursday 5th September, 6:00pm
While Eduardo Paolozzi is best known as a sculptor, he also made a distinctive and perhaps surprising contribution to the worlds of fashion and mid-century design. In the 1950s he created bold textile designs that applied his collage aesthetic to modern dress and furnishing fabrics for companies such as Horrockses and David Whitehead. Geoff Raynor and Richard Chamberlain of Target Gallery and Dennis Northdruft, Director of the Fashion and Textile Museum, will discuss this little-known aspect of his work.

From Cyborgs to Sideboards: Paolozzi's Sculptures (Talk)

Thursday 26th September, 6:00pm
Paolozzi's main sculptural work in the 1950s consisted of large bronzed forms that resembled lumbering monsters, half organic, half machine. As the decade continued these creatures began to morph into architectural forms reminiscent of sideboards and elaborate fire-surrounds. Ben Highmore, Professor of Cultural Studies at the University of Sussex, will explore this progression with reference to the artist's life and the relationship between sculpture and architecture.

Eduardo Paolozzi's Bunk Collages (Talk)

Thursday 3rd October, 6:00pm
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.
