Between 1950 and 1968, the Institute of Contemporary Arts was based at 17-18 Dover Street, before relocating to The Mall. It was in this building that Pop Art was born, as well as Op Art and Brutalist Architecture. It is where the Independent Group formed and regularly met, its members including artists Richard Hamilton and Eduardo Paolozzi, and architects Alison and Peter Smithson. This is where the ICA staged some of the most important shows in the history of post-war British art, including Growth and Form and Parallel Of Life and Art, as well as ground-breaking exhibitions by Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud, Pablo Picasso and Jackson Pollock.
