SUPPORT SCHOOL. 1976. THE LAST “OFFICIAL” ART & LANGUAGE PROJECT PRIOR TO THE BREAK UP OF THE GROUP – ONLY 25 POSTERS PRINTED

£495.00

Coventry: Art & Language, 1976
40 x 27cm, black on brown paper printed letterpress. Promotional poster for the School magazine project conceived and run by David Rushton where artists and students were encouraged to contribute to a magazine mostly devoted to students who wanted to challenge the typical authoritarian structures of British art schools.

This poster has an amusing vitrolic text written by Rushton attacking the art establishment and the college authorities.

One of the very last official A&L projects before the group splintered and A&L effectively became only synonymous with Baldwin and Mel Ramsden.

One of only 25 such posters issued – of which 15 were mailed to other student bodies and most likely lost. This copy in VG+ condition although with one closed tear bottom right and very minor edge damage else.
