Study for an Exhibition of Violence in Contemporary Art originally took place at the ICA in 1964. It was made up almost entirely of photographic reproductions categorised by titles such as 'Violence as Direct Expression' which foresaw the destructive and auto-destructive actions. In April 2011 curator Mathieu Copeland included a photocopied 'bootleg' of the ICA exhibition at the David Roberts Art Foundation which were temporarily housed at Copeland's exhibition at Flat Time House (24th June – 31st July). Alongside were presented works that could be seen as a study of violence in music and art. At the launch, Shelley Parker performed a live set devised specifically for this exhibition.
