This Is Today
© John Plumb, Blenheim, 1962

A show to mark the sixtieth anniversary of the ground-breaking 'This is Tomorrow' exhibition, which was put together by Independent Group at the Whitechapel Gallery in 1956. The Independent Group, a collective of young artists, writers and critics, regularly met at the Institute of Contemporary Art, then located on Dover Street in the place of the current Dover Street Market (on the opposite side of the street to Gazelli Art House). The show features artists and designers including Sir Eduardo Paolozzi, Bernard Cohen, Magda Cordell, Richard Smith, William Turnbull, Derek Boshier and Archigram, tracing the development of their work and their influence during the 1960s and '70s. We haven't been told whether or not it includes a juke box playing continuously, like the original 'This is Tomorrow' show.
