This essay examines the history of the Welsh Arts Council pioneering ‘Art and Society’ exhibition series 1968-1973, which was the first to expand the definition of ‘art’ to include not only painting and sculpture, but also posters, films, photography, fashion, banners, toys and material artefacts. The series was controversial because it made no distinction between ‘high art’ and ‘popular culture’, but ultimately pioneered new ways of thinking about the role of art galleries and cultural institutions which continue to reverberate in contemporary debates about cultural policy. The essay won the 2009 Planet Under-30 Essay Prize.
