FB55: Discussing Francis Bacon

15 Apr 2015

Examining the significance of Francis Bacon’s 1955 ICA exhibition, this panel discussion focuses on questions connected to the artist’s relationship to the social and artistic context of the time, specifically pop and queer culture. This panel accompanies ICA Fox Reading Room exhibition FB55, an archival display of Francis Bacon’s 1955 show held at the ICA's former premises on Dover Street.
