WHEN Pete Townsend (right) hurled himself around the stage with The Who, was it merely the delinquent fury of disaffected youth, or was the young popster making a grander artistic statement? Tonight, Townsend intends to reveal that it was his stint at art school which actually proved his biggest inspiration, especially the work of his favourite teacher, the charismatic Austrian artist Gustav Metzger. Pupil and mentor get together again to discuss each other's work at the ICA - the very place Metzger got busted by the police for the Destruction in Art Symposium back in 1966.

ICA, The Mall, London SW1 (0171 930 3647) 7.30pm
