The work of the artist, Conrad Atkinson.

Conrad Atkinson was born in Cumbria in 1940. He has received international recognition for his innovative art. Lawrence Rinder, Curator of the Whitney Museum of American Art, observed “It is the forging together of conceptualism and activism to art practice that distinguishes Atkinson’s work and makes it such an important contribution to 20th century art history”.

Conrad Atkinson has had much influence in the USA. His first exhibition at Ronald Feldman Fine Art in New York in 1979 was the inspiration for the creation of “Group Material”.
