Between Surrealism and Pop: The early career of Eduardo Paolozzi

Beginning with his experience of the Second World War, the lecture will trace his formative years in post-war Paris, where he sought out the legacy of the historical avant-garde and then 1950s London where, at the Institute of Contemporary Art, he was a member of the Independent Group, an informal, cross-disciplinary think-tank dedicated to the investigation of popular culture.
