 ICA is pleased to present the reissue of the Cybernetic Serendipity poster which was originally released in 1968 to coincide with their exhibition curated by Jasia Reichardt. 

Nearly 50 years after their exhibition, at a time when our relationship with computers permeates every aspect of visual culture, Cybernetic Serendipity was celebrated at the ICA in the Fox Reading Room with a display of documents, installation photographs, press reviews, invitation cards and publications (14 October - 30 November 2014). 

Cybernetic Serendipity was the first international exhibition in the UK devoted to the relationship between the arts and new technology. This ground-breaking exhibition, designed by Franciszka Themerson, presented the work of over 130 participants including composers, engineers, artists, mathematicians and poets. The exhibition ran from 2 August - 20 October 1968 and was seen by some 60,000 visitors. 

The original poster designed by Franzisca Themerson has now been re-issued in a limited edition of 100.
