Raven Row hosts a conversation between Stephen Willats and Stuart Comer to celebrate the launch of The Artist as an Instigator of Changes in Social Cognition and Behaviour
by Stephen Willats
Stephen Willats’ major essay The Artist as an Instigator of Changes in Social Cognition and Behaviour is re-issued for the first time by Occasional Papers. Published in 1973 by Gallery House, London – where Willats founded the Centre For Behavioural Art – and long out of print, the paper includes rigorous analyses of social forms of artistic production and descriptions of a number of projects by the artist. The new OP edition features the original text, accompanied by archival images and a specially written introduction by Willats. For more information please visit www.occasionalpapers.org.
Seats for the conversation will be offered on a first come first served basis.
