The House of Fame – Convened by Linder
Running from 24th of March until the 24th of June 2018 at the Nottingham Contemporary gallery, ‘The House of Fame’ exhibition is part the ‘The Grand Tour’ project and runs along the ‘Her Grace Land’ exhibition at Chatsworth House.
From Nottingham Contemporary;
‘The House of Fame is an ambitious exhibition conceived by Linder. At the heart of the presentation is a retrospective of the influential British artist and musician’s work, spanning more than 40 years of photomontage, graphics, costume and performance. Emerging from the Manchester punk and post-punk scenes in the 1970s, Linder focuses on questions of gender, commodity and display.
This diverse practice is presented alongside almost 200 works by some 30 artists selected by Linder. Stretching from the 1600s to today – and gathering together the worlds of art and architecture, fashion and theatre, music and design – the exhibition includes works by Inigo Jones, Mike Kelley, Alison and Peter Smithson, Moki Cherry, Ithell Colquhoun and Heidi Bucher, among many others. The House of Fame draws upon Linder’s many sources of influence and wideranging collaborations.’
John E. Wright & Co were pleased to be offered the opportunity to produce and install two large format print pieces that formed backdrops to other elements of the display. Produced at our Print Hub in Nottingham and installed over 2 days by our experienced team.
The self adhesive vinyl print was produced on the Vutek Wide Format UV device and cut to millimetre accuracy on the Zund flat bed cutter.
We would like to thank the curatorial team at Nottingham Contemporary for giving us the opportunity to be involved in this prestigious creative project.
