This title accompanies a late-2009 exhibition at the Laing Art Gallery in Newcastle. NOTES on a return featured a series of exhibitions and a symposium, which revisited five live artworks made at the Laing in 1985, 1986 and 1987 by influential artists Anne Bean, Rose English, Mona Hatoum, Bruce McLean and Nigel Rolfe. This publication further examines ideas of memory, archive and the documentation of ephemeral practices and queries the reasons and conditions for remembering within the discourses of institution and art history.
