CIRCA, 1970

"If ever asked: What decade in art history inspires you most?
There would be no hesitation; the 1970’s."

The decade expressed a sense of vitality and possibility, shifts in critical thinking and diverse approaches altered our understanding of art.

Robert Smithson’s Spiral Jetty (1970) and Walter De Maria’s Lightning Field (1977) introduced earth art.
Mediums like video and performance art gained recognition with Chris Burden’s Shoot,(1971) and Through the Night Softly(1974).

Conceptual/ post minimalist like Lawence Weiner with his wall instillations, Bruce Nauman’s neon, and Sol De Witt’s wall drawings all reflected the sensibilities of the time.

The seventies marked the end of modern art and the beginning of Post-modernism.
The exhibition Postmodernism - Style and Subversion 1970-1990 at the Victoria and Albert Museum (London, Sept. 2011 - Jan. 2012) was billed as the first show ever to document postmodernism as a historical movement.

For Heaven's first curated group exhibition we ask artist to redefine "70's art".

Featuring a neon camp fire by Morgan Sims and optical illusion art by Jason Lazarus.
