The doubles series normally asks a mid career artist to invite another, younger artist, with whom they have some form of artistic relationship, to make an exhibition with them. This time, for the fourth show in the series, The Hut Project have nominated the more established Art & Language.

The Hut Project are presenting both new works and works recombined from earlier pieces. They have also selected works by Art & Language to act as 'keys' to their own - presented as renderings of the interpretive texts written by Art & Language for each work in the book 'Art & Language in Practice', 1999.

This exhibition has been undertaken with permission from Art & Language.



The Hut Project is a collective formed in London in 2005. 'They have very quick fingers.'(Gavin Wade)

Recent group exhibitions include 'Open 18', Oriel Mostyn, Llandudno, 'Assembly', Jerwood Space, London, London and 'Abstract Cabinet Show', Eastside Projects, Birmingham. Recent solo exhibitions include 'But aren't they interesting? Aren't they nice to look at?', OHIO, Glasgow, 'Giles Said...' and 'It's Not Me It's You', Limoncello, London and 'Old Kunst', ICA, London (as part of 'Nought to Sixty').


The name Art & Language was first adopted in 1968, to refer to a collaborative practice that had developed over the previous two years between Michael Baldwin and Terry Atkinson, in association with David Bainbridge and Harold Hurrell. In 1970 Ian Burn and Mel Ramsden merged their separate collaboration with Art & Language. The journal Art-Language was first published in May 1969 and a second journal The Fox was published in New York in 1975-6. From 1976 the genealogical thread of Art & Language's artistic work was taken solely into the hands of Baldwin (b. 1945) and Ramsden, (b.1944) with the theoretical and critical collaboration of these two with Charles Harrison (1942-2009).
