Higher State of Consciousness: The Psychedelic Event

ICA Londres 25 junio 19h

When Soft Machine played with the Boyles in 1969, when The Resplendent Kaleidoscope offered "celebration of faith dedicated to the Clear Light", when the ICA celebrated a Mid Summer High, was the intellectual field of the curator in danger of giving way to drugs and flashing lights? Or was the transcendent space of artistic experience being fully realised?

Speakers: Neil Mulholland, director of The Centre for Visual and Cultural Studies at Edinburgh College of Art; Christoph Grunenberg, director of Tate Liverpool; Tot Taylor, director, Riflemaker gallery; artists Neil Bromwich and Zoë Walker; artist Peter Jones of Colourscape. Chair: Barry Curtis, emeritus professor of visual culture, Middlesex University.
