Visit: Guided tour by Lynda Morris

The History Embedded in Conceptual Art

On Sunday September 25, 2016 at 3 pm, Herbert Foundation kindly invites you for a Visit with Lynda Morris to the exhibition Time Extended / 1964 – 1978.

During the tour, Morris will pay attention to the relationship between Conceptual art and the social-historical context of the years 1960 and 1970. In particular, she will focus on Marcel Broodthaers, Art & Language, Mario Merz, Carl Andre, Konrad Fischer and Fernand Spillemaeckers.

Lynda Morris is curator and professor at the Norwich University of the Arts. In 1969 Morris started the bookshop of the Institute for Contemporary Art (ICA) and worked with Konrad Fischer on the exhibition When Attitudes Become Form in London. In 1971 she went to the Royal College of Art and started a bookshop for Nigel Greenwood. As a freelance critic she wrote for Studio International, Flash Art, Art Monthly and Kunstforum and closely followed and came to know artists such as Art & Language, Andre Cadere and Gilbert & George.
