TitleFathers of Pop - ACE085.7

Alloway on trying to deal with broad-based iconography and topicality, which led to criticism that they had no real scale of values. Cover of A. E. van Vogt’s science fiction fantasy, The World of Null-A (1948), based on the ideas in Alfred Korzybski’s Science and Sanity (1933) which tried to get away from Aristotelian principles of dividing things into categories. Hamilton says this lack of value judgement enabled them to say that everything they could think of was right and could be used. Covers of the magazine Ark, which Banham says made the Group "Fathers of Pop" by asking them to write for it; articles by Frank Cordell, and Lawrence Alloway and Robert Adams. Examples of the work of young Royal College of Art graduates like David Hockney (Typhoo Tea,1960), Ron Kitaj, Peter Blake, Peter Phillips (Gravy for the Navy, 1963), Derek Boshier (The Identi-Kit Man, 1962), Allen Jones (Buses, 1964), and Richard Smith. Photograph of Smith, at one time Art Editor of Ark. Talking to Banham in the Chrysler, about becoming aware of the Group at an exhibition by John McHale, but suggesting that much of his generation’s work was more influenced by other sources. Alloway on his programme of American violent films at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, in the early 1970s, a development of interests from the Group. Credits over the Cadillac driving away.
