Chittick, Kim [Curator of an exhibition] and Wickstead, Helen [Research team head] (2010) Touchstone: Contemporary art encounters archaeology. Touchstone: Contemporary art encounters archaeology. .
When Art+Archaeology invited a group of artists to creatively interpret the excavations of the Stonehenge Riverside Project, their immediate challenge arose from a brief based on archaeological experiences. The artwork exhibited in Touchstone reveals a story of exploration and discovery, where the processes of excavation became a meeting point between artistic and Archaeological practice. Within this overall structure, a preoccupation with issues of time features predominantly, in both physical and conceptual terms, across the two disciplines.
