Artist Placement Group
||This article needs additional citations for verification. (December 2011)|
The Artist Placement Group (APG) was founded in 1966 as an artist-run organisation seeking to refocus art outside the gallery, predominantly through attaching an artist in a business or governmental context for a period of time.
As well as these placements, the organisation exhibited in galleries - for example in INN70 at the Hayward gallery in London,1971 and other venues including a retrospective review at Whitechapel Art Gallery in 1977 and at documenta 6 in the same year.
After 1989 the organisation became known as Organisation and Imagination (O+I). John Latham died in 2006 just after the Tate gallery in London purchased the APG archives.
In 2012 Raven Row Gallery, London, revisited APG's early years by staging a major retrospective of work carried out including examples of some of its placements together with related documentation much of it loaned by the Tate.
