Art & Language

In Conceptual Art

Art & Language is a group ofconceptual artists who have produced collaborative work under this name since the late1960s.

The nameArt & Language was first used in 1968 by theBritish artistsTerry Atkinson,David Bainbridge,Michael Baldwin andHarold Hurrell, who had been collaborating on works since around 1966, and who were at that time teachingart inCoventry. Their early work, as well as their journal Art-Language which first appeared in 1969, is regarded as an important influence on much conceptual art both in the United Kingdom and in theUnited States.

In the early 1970sIan Burn,Michael Corris,Charles Harrison,Preston Heller,Joseph KosuthAndrew Menard,Mel Ramsden,Terry Smith and from CoventryPhilip Pilkington andDavid Rushton joined the group and worked under its name. Art & Language produced a good deal of art as well as theoretical writings, though by the end of the 1970s the group was essentially reduced to Baldwin, Harrison and Ramsden. In the UK the more resourceful members went into a variety of creative and sometimes politicised occupations.

The Art & Language group that exhibited in the internationalDocumenta exhibitions of 1972 included Atkinson, Bainbridge, Baldwin, Hurrell, Pilkington and Rushton and the then America editor of Art-Language Joseph Kosuth. In 1986, the remnants of the group were nominated for theTurner Prize.
