Art & Language Uncompleted offers a detailed view of one of the most complex aesthetic identities of the postwar era. A major influence on the development of Conceptualism, Art & Language was founded in the UK in 1967 but by the early 1970s had expanded into an international collaboration involving artists such as Terry Atkinson, Joseph Kosuth, Philip Pilkington, Kathryn Bigelow and Michael Corris; between 1968 and 1982, about 50 people were actively associated with the group. The literary character of the group, exemplified in its legendary publication, Art-Language, challenged the power of the institution to generate and circulate artistic research. Art & Language Uncompleted, the most comprehensive publication on the work of this crucial group, draws from the Philippe Meaille Collection of Art & Language works at MACBA in Barcelona, which includes more than 800 works.
