Discover a movement which broke away from traditions and changed the way we look at art to this day with Conceptual Art in Britain 1964 –1979 at Tate Britain.
In a time of change, spanning the election of Harold Wilson’s first government to that of Margaret Thatcher, a defining art movement emerged in Britain which questioned the purpose of art. Inviting enquiry over mere contemplation, artists focused on capturing ideas and concepts in self-conscious works which engaged with the society and politics of the day.
Take a closer look at 70 radical works of conceptual art by 21 artists, including Braco Dimitrijević, Sue Arrowsmith, Hamish Fulton, Ed Herring, Barry Flanagan, John Hilliard and Margaret Harrison; and follow the impact of this movement on art up to this day.
