Richard Hamilton. ‘Man Machine & Motion’, 1955
Edition: 1,000
Richard Hamilton, Reyner Banham, Anthony Froshaug

While Hamilton was a professor at the University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, he conceived ‘Man, Machine & Motion’ as an exhibition and visual study of man’s relationship with moving machines, detailing the mechanical conquest of time and distance by man-made structures. It was first exhibited at Newcastle’s Hatton Gallery then the ICA London.

The ICA offered Hamilton an opportunity to curate pioneering exhibitions organised by the Independent Group (IG), of which he was a member, with Paolozzi, McHale, Henderson, Alison/Peter Smithson and Banham. IG focused on developments in technology, science, communication and popular culture, and their possible applications in the arts and society. Hamilton was also responsible for ‘an Exhibit’ (1957) and ‘The Developing Process’ (1959).

The IG group challenged modernist (as they saw it elitist) culture, in order to make it more inclusive of popular culture. In 1956 the IG staged the ground-breaking exhibition ‘This is Tomorrow’.
