Full text not available from this repository.


‘Live in Your Head: Concept and Experiment in Britain, 1965–75’ was initially curated by Clive Phillpot and Andrea Tarsia for the Whitechapel Gallery, London and shown in February, 2000. The exhibition documented a crucial period of change in British art, during which the supremacy of painting and sculpture was challenged with long-lasting results. Dye was a selected artist with John Latham, Gustav Metzger, David Medalla, Art & Language, Susan Hiller, the Boyle Family, Richard Long, Kay Fido Hunt, Margaret Harrison and Mary Kelly. He reconstructed some of his installation works and revisited many of the ideas that had originally helped pioneer the emergence of conceptual modes of art practice in London. The British Council organised a second version of this output at Museu do Chiado, Lisbon in Spring 2001, and Dye embarked a further set of experimental re-explorations of 70s exhibition practices. Whilst working towards this output Dye’s research addressed the difference between the reconstruction and reinvention of temporary installation and media works. The ‘Live in Your Head’ exhibition was a significant contribution to our contemporary engagement with the experimental practices of 70s media-based fine art. Dye sees his contribution to this project as a form of audience development with considerable pedagogic potential. Dye’s research informed the authoring (with Dorsett, see outputs above) the programme of seminars, workshops and critical tutorials that address the issues of postgraduate research in the field of experimental exhibition practices. This module has been designed for master’s and doctoral students who require training in practice-led research methods, particularly those needed for the planning, execution and exhibiting of PhD projects in which the candidate’s own creative activities are the main instruments of inquiry and reflection.
