Art & Language: Now They Are
The work of the group Art & Language is organised around a central core of collaborative activity, with individual members of the group being no more than contributors to this process of collaboration.
The group’s studio practice represents a withdrawal from the long tradition that values artworks with secure individual attributions. The effect of this withdrawal is to place greater emphasis on questions of genre, discursive conventions, institutional codes, and the general conditions of knowledge.
Many of the works in the present exhibition are accordingly focused on the studio itself, as the crucible in which different sets of influences bear on the work being done at different times. At the centre of the show is one version (only one, mind) of the major work ‘Picasso’s Guernica in the Style of Jackson Pollock’, which joins together the Guernica template with an adaptation of Pollock’s style in order to reactivate the circuit that links politics and history with art.
Due to COVID-19, the space available and social distancing requirements, there are only three tickets per timeslot.
If you wish to attend with a larger household/support bubble group, please make sure that you choose a timeslot that has all three tickets available, and book those three tickets. Please only attend with those in your household/support bubble.
Please scan the NHS Track and Trace poster at reception, and wear a face covering at all times when inside the building.
