Integration Alone Is Not Enough: Selected works of British Concrete Poetry 1960-1980

An exhibition of works of concrete poetry rarely seen in the UK, including artists Henri Chopin, Bob Cobbing, Kenelm Cox, Tom Edmonds, John Furnival, Dom Sylvester Houédard, Peter Mayer, Charles Verey and Edward Wright.

Taking its title from a work by Bob Cobbing, Integration Alone Is Not Enough points to the ongoing synthesis between media initiated by the concrete poetry movement – a fusion of poetry and painting, literature and sound art, typography and Eastern phenomenology – that continues in other art forms today, and relates in part to what Rosalind Krauss has called the ‘post-medium condition’, a non-hierarchical index, or entwined helix of specialised genres and modes of production that holds ongoing potential for contemporary art.
