Since 1960, progressive forces within art education have stoked, and continued to fire, new impulses in the field of artistic production. As society at large embraced youth and popular culture, art school students with international aspirations exploded class barriers, fused fashion with Pop and insisted that art was integral to social change. With 100 illustrations showing both the art school in action and the works that were made under its pull, this survey provides key information for the London Art Schools – Camberwell, Chelsea, Wimbledon, Slade, Royal College of Art, Goldsmiths and Central St Martins.
