Art & Language

Art & Language

The name Art & Language was first adopted in 1968, to refer to a collaborative practice that had developed over the previous two years between Michael Baldwin and Terry Atkinson, in association with David Bainbridge and Harold Hurrell. In 1970 Ian Burn and Mel Ramsden joined the collective. The journal Art-Language was first published in May 1969 and a second journal The Fox was published in New York in 1975-6. Seen by many as the radical bad boys of Conceptualism, Art & Language have from the very beginning taken a contrarian position within the traditional understanding of conceptual art and practice. Their art making has encompassed many forms—be it writing lyrics and performing rock and roll music with The Red Crayola in the 1960s, to constructing arcane indexical works, to writing the now historical and famous journal Art-Language, to large, sculptural installations that employ portions of their texts as building blocks. Their anarchic yet historically grounded discourse has simultaneously energized and stymied audiences since their appearance at Documenta 5 in 1972 (they participate again in 1982 and 1997). Art & Language is very much invested in an ambivalence towards corporate art institutions and systems that is conditional upon a refusal of whole meaning.
