“A term used to describe works composed of different media. The use of mixed media began around 1912 with the Cubist collages and constructions of Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque and has become widespread as artists developed increasingly open attitudes to the media of art. Essentially art can be made of anything or any combination of things. ”
“Term used to describe mixed media art works which occupy an entire room or gallery space and into which usually the spectator can enter. Some installations, however, are designed simply to be walked around and contemplated, or are so fragile that they can only be viewed from a doorway, or one end of a room. Installation art emerged from the earlier form of the Environment. One of the originators of Environments was the American artist Allan Kaprow in works made from about 1957 on. In an undated interview published in 1965 Kaprow said of his first Environment: ‘I just simply filled the whole gallery up ¿ When you opened the door you found yourself in the midst of an entire Environment ¿ The materials were varied: sheets of plastic, crumpled up cellophane, tangles of Scotch tape, sections of slashed and daubed enamel and pieces of coloured cloth’. There were also lights hung within all this and ‘five tape machines spread around the space played electronic sounds which I had composed’. Miscellaneous materials (mixed media), light and sound have remained fundamental to installation art. From that time on the creation of installations became a major strand in modern art, increasingly from about 1990, and many artists have made them. In 1961 in New York, Claes Oldenburg created an early Environment, The Store, from which his Counter and Plates with Potato and Ham comes. One of the outstanding creators of installations using light is James Turrell.”

Richard Wilson is one of Britain’s most celebrated sculptors. He is known for his interventions in architectural space which draw heavily for their inspiration from the worlds of engineering and construction and are characterised by concerns with size and structural daring.
Wilson has exhibited widely nationally and internationally, and represented Britain in the Sydney, Yokohama, Sao Paulo and Venice Biennials. He was awarded the prestigious DAAD residency in Berlin 1992/3.
His commissioned contribution to Liverpool’s European Capital of Culture 2008, titled Turning the Place Over, comprised a vast ovoid section of a façade that rotates three dimensionally on a spindle. 20:50 was first created in 1987 and was shown as a permanent installation at the Saatchi Gallery. Wilson was appointed Visiting Research Professor at the University of East London in 2004 and lives and works in London.
