David Rushton was a founder editor of Coventry-based Analyitical Art in the 1960s and subsequently worked in Art & Language from 1972 to 1975, notably on the Art & Language Indexes .Rushton was a key agent in student-led activism and print throughout the 1970s and co-edited Politics of Art Education, 1979.
Rushton began producing intricate scale models of art and social incidents in 1965. When he moved to Scotland a decade later he split his time between an analysis of art education and communications, latterly working on policies and legislation affecting a more localised TV in the UK. Since leaving Art & Language he has developed the making and display of 1/24th scale models of interiors to explore social conflict, art trade and new ways of working in art.
Rushton is the Founding Director of The Institute of Local Television.
