The House of Fame

  • 24 March — 24 June 2018 *on now

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.
Linder has spent the last few months as the first artist-in-residence in Chatsworth House’s 500-year history. The exhibition is part of the third season of The Grand Tour; a partnership of Nottingham Contemporary, Chatsworth, Derby Museums and The Harley Gallery, together with Visit Nottinghamshire and Visit Peak District & Derbyshire. Supported by Arts Council England’s Cultural Destinations fund and The D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership. Read more at www.thegrandtour.uk.com
This exhibition is sponsored by Spenbeck. An award-winning, family-run property development company specialising in versatile creative space in Nottingham’s historic Lace Market.
