Despite refusing to acknowledge himself as an artist, Charles Harrison became a leading figure of the British art world in the late '60s and '70s. Art historian, editor, creator and member of the artist collective Art & Language, he sought to give priority to the concept, process and activity over the finished piece of work. This display will examine his previous exhibitions and recognise his experimental approach, as well as his development from scholarly historian to curator.

Dedicated to showcasing Britain's artistic talent, Tate Britain is home to the greatest collection of British art from 1500 to the present day. More about Tate Britain
