Abstract or Description

This "Will Not Happen Without You" is a comprehensive overview of significant and controversial artistic activity coming out of the north east of England since the mid 1970s. Taken from the Locus+ archive it extensively documents the artistic practice carried out by the organisation and its previous incarnations: The Basement Group and Projects UK. Highlighting performances by artists such as Bruce McLean, Stuart Brisley, Mona Hatoum, Alastair MacLennan and Andre Stitt, as well as projects by Richard Wilson, Stefan Gec, Chris Burden, Cornelia Hesse Honegger, Anya Gallaccio, Mark Wallinger, Simon Patterson, Nathan Coley and Layla Curtis, this lavishly illustrated publication has the critical underpinning of some of the best writers on contemporary art today.Accompanied by anecdotal texts by artists commissioned by the three organisations, "This Will Not Happen Without You" is an extraordinary documentation of the changing artistic, social and political landscape in contemporary art over the last three decades.
