Conceptual Art in Britain: 1964–1979 traces the course of conceptual art in Britain from its origin in the 1960s until the late 1970s – encompassing a defining period in British history that takes in the first Labour government of Harold Wilson and the election of Margaret Thatcher.

The exhibition gathers together artists who set out to think beyond the limits of traditional art, predominantly using text and photography to place in question the material, aesthetic and philosophical conditions and purpose of art, and which in certain cases led to a direct engagement with society and issues of identity politics.

Artists featured within the show include, among others: Keith Arnatt, Art & LanguageConrad Atkinson, Victor Burgin, Michael Craig-Martin, Hamish Fulton, Margaret Harrison, Susan Hiller, John Hilliard, Mary Kelly, John Latham, Richard Long, Bruce McLean, David Tremlett and Stephen Willats.
