An essential guide to the period, being the first since the 1970s to focus specifically on conceptual and experimental art in Britain. Featuring a double-page spread on each of the 64 participating artists, this catalogue also includes artists’ statements and portraits, reproductions of numerous works, biographic and bibliographical information. In addition, Live in Your Head includes a lively and illustrated chronology of social and cultural events between 1965-1975, and essays by Michael Archer, Rosetta Brooks and co-curators, Andrea Tarsia and Clive Phillpot.
