(2006) This Will Not Happen Without You: from the collective archive of The Basement Group, Projects UK and Locus+ 1977 - 2006

Record type: Art Design Item


This Will Not Happen Without You revisits some of the most compelling art projects, performances and events in Britain over the last thirty years. The exhibition begins by tracing the activities of The Basement Group (1979-1984). A collective of six artists focusing on performance and time-based work, the group later evolved into Projects UK (1984 to 1992), the UK’s first office-based organisation, working with artists to develop site-specific events and temporary works. This Will Not Happen Without You will enable visitors to explore documentation of performances, projects and events, along with objects, ephemera, publications and artist’s proposals, spanning the history of the three organisations. The exhibition documents unique performances by artists including Stuart Brisley, Mona Hatoum, Bruce Mclean, Silvia Ziranek, Alastair Maclennan, Rose English, Nan Hoover and Charlie Hooker
