Ikon in the 1970s

This catalogue accompanies an exhibition which surveys Ikon Gallery’s artistic programme during c.1970 – 1978.

It is the second chapter in the story of Ikon, following on from their 2004 exhibition, The best things in life happen accidentally, featuring work by founder artists, their colleagues, friends and acquaintances.

The ethos they instilled in the organisation, whereby an emphasis on aesthetic innovation was matched by efforts towards greater accessibility, was assumed by their successors as they engaged in a bigger picture that involved artists from further-a-field in the UK, and occasionally from abroad.

The catalogue contains biographies of all the artists in the exhibition, material from the 70s found in Ikon’s archive, installation photographs and essays.
