In Collaboration: Eduardo Paolozzi at the Central School, 1949 - 1955

Between 1949 and 1955 Eduardo Paolozzi taught textile design at the Central School of Arts and Crafts. Working alongside designers, photographers, architects, artists and technicians, Paolozzi explored methods of creative and experimental exchange.

The prints in this exhibition are from originals produced at the Central School between 1949 and 1955. Paolozzi made these experimental and innovative prints in a richly collaborative and interdisciplinary environment including technician and theorist Anton Ehrenzweig, artist-photographer Nigel Henderson, artist Richard Hamilton and sculptor William Turnbull.

These prints were found in the archive of the Nigel Henderson, where they have been since the 1950s. The prints were photographically reproduced and then screen printed. The display also contains images of Central School of Arts and Crafts prospectuses from 1950-52 held in the CSM Museum & Study Collection.

Curated by Rosie Ram and the CSM Museum and Study Collection, in conjunction with BA Textile Design and MA Culture Criticism and Curation, and supported by Central Saint Martins.

The exhibition runs from 13 February to 16 March 2017
