Art & Language

Profile:
Art & Language is a conceptual art collective, formed around 1969 by Michael Baldwin and Terry Atkinson, in association with David Bainbridge and Harold Hurrell, from their beginning they always took a contrarian position within the traditional understanding of conceptual art and its 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 (first published in 1969), to large, sculptural installations that employ portions of their texts as building blocks.
Famous director Kathryn Bigelow was part of the band in early period
