It went hand in hand with a wave of optimism driven by Britain’s post-war economic recovery, a liberation from the past and a turning towards new ideas of modernity.  Signals was an experimental new gallery that that functioned as a meeting place for international artists; a platform for contemporary works as yet unknown to the mainstream art world, and a vibrant space for experimentation and expression that represented a significant departure from more established galleries.’  Condition: light patch of wear to spine, otherwise very good.
