3 - 8pm, Thursday 1st Oct
Historical British Conceptual Art Group Show curated by David Thorp - EXTROSPECTION
EXTROSPECTION brings together works from Fiona Banner, Barry Flanagan, Toby Tobias Kidd, John Latham, Cally Spooner, Anne Tallentire.
Conceptual art was an international movement and, after New York, London was an important centre. The artists selected for EXTROSPECTION all have a strong link to London. They are drawn from different generations, from those instrumental in establishing conceptual art as a discipline to those active today.
“Conceptual artists leap to conclusions that logic cannot reach”
Over the years the term Conceptual art has come to be used as a popular catchall for everything that isn't conventional painting and sculpture. But did Conceptual art actually die in the 70s? Or has it survived as a distinct discipline formed by the extrospective consideration of things external to the artist - putting ideas about art and its place in the world over the artists’ mental and emotional processes?
