The name Art & Language was first adopted in 1968, to refer to a collaborative practice that had developed over the previous two years between Michael Baldwin and Terry Atkinson, in association with David Bainbridge and Harold Hurrell.

In 1970 Ian Burn and Mel Ramsden merged their separate collaboration with Art & Language. The journal Art-Language was first published in May 1969 and a second journal The Fox was published in New York in 1975-76.
From 1976 the genealogical thread of Art & Language's artistic work was taken solely into the hands of Baldwin and Ramsden,with the theoretical and critical collaboration of these two with Charles Harrison.
