Type of Research: Book Section
Creators: Melvin, Jo

Critical essay to introduce the collection of auto-biographical interviews conducted with the art historian, curator, critic and professor Charles Harrison, to which the author also contributed two interviews. These interviews addressed Harrison's curation of When Attitudes Become Form in the London showing at the ICA, Idea Structures at Camden Art Centre, The British Avant Garde at the New York Cultural Center amongst others. They also discuss his role as assistant editor of Studio International magazine and his decision to leave mainstream art criticism and become the editor of the Art Language Journal in 1971.
'Democratize access to dialogue' situates the context of Harrison's evolving critical position from the early 1960s to the 1970s.
