Barbara Steveni

Born in Iran, Barbara Steveni is a British artist, who conceived and co-founded the Artist Placement Group (APG) in London in 1966. APG actively sought to reposition the role of the artist within a wider social context, including government and commerce, while at the same time playing an important part in the history of conceptual art during the 1960s and 1970s.

Steveni's current work I AM AN ARCHIVE gathers artists and professionals across three generations in a series of participatory and documentary walks, taking place on the site of original APG placements, exploring the potential to reactivate and re-contextualise APG methodologies today.
