Chris Stephens and Katherine Stout (eds.), Art and the 60s - This Was Tomorrow, Tate, London, 2004.
Yes, you've noticed there's a barcode sticker obscuring part of the book cover. I bring home a lot of books from my univeristy library, where the cataloguing staff appear to be aesthetic vandals who take perverse pleasure in positioning stickers on book jackets so as to ruin their design wherever possible. I like good design and often judge a book by its cover, so this irritates me but it's not going to get in the way of this blog. No, sir.
Art & The 60s was a survey show at the Tate Britain gallery, looking at mostly London based artists from that revolutionary decade.
