After forty-six years, the Institute of Contemporary Arts returns to their former home in Dover Street Market. The ICA can now be located at The Mall, but between 1950-1968, the group resided on Dover Street, the birthplace of British Pop Art, Op Art, and Brutalist Architecture.
Dover Street Market is where Eduardo Paolozzi founded the Independent Group, of which Pop Artists, Richard Hamilton, and architects Alison and Peter Smithson were also members. Hamilton's work is currently on display at The Mall until the 6th April, but coinciding with that is ICA Off Site. Covering all six floors of Dover Street Market, discover rarely seen material from the ICA archives, such as greeting cards, invitations, Francis Bacon's first show covers, and more.
