THIS IS TOMORROW (original)
Whitechapel Art Gallery
FIRST EDITION OF 1300 copies
A rare and important original edition of the famous and important THIS IS TOMORROW catalogue for the exhibition which was held at the Whitechapel Gallery in 1956. The orignal catalogue is designed by Edward Wright .
The exhibition was to be viewed as display stand of ideas and the principles they symbolise are varied and not unified. The purpose of the Independent Group and others involved was to show a variety of ideas and themes and to oppose the specialisation of the arts but was supposed to be a lesson in spectatorship which cuts across the learned responses of conventional perception. Catalogues are now scare - this copy has a provenance from the time of the exhibition and is in particularly good condition. .
