The conclusion speaks to Art & Language’s relevance for understanding the historical shift from modern to contemporary art. It claims that the collective’s importance inheres in the ways that it reveals how art worlds impose and sustain a concept of art that is fundamentally unchanged amid this epochal historical transformation. The book and its argument come to a close with a final assessment of conceptual art’s part in this historical continuity and considerations of what Art & Language’s work offers to artistic radicalism in the aftermath of modernism and the avant-garde. The collective’s international collaborations of the 1960s and 1970s remain vitally relevant because the collective’s cultural and social impasses remain current.
