Running from 15 February to 26 April 2020, Linder’s first UK survey looks at five decades of the pioneering artist’s career. From her first few years in Manchester, immersed into the punk scene of the 1970s, to her more recent public commissions, the exhibition will include new works which respond to Kettle’s Yard’s founders Helen and Jim Ede’s charisma. Specific source of interest to the artist is Helen’s aura. ‘House of Helen’ a unique line of products designed by Linder and available in Kettle’s Yard Shop will complement a new site specific photomontage and sound installation.
On 14 March, Linder will also stage a new iteration of her Bower of Bliss performances with a soundtrack by musician Maxwell Sterling at Murray Edwards College, Cambridge, the home of the New Hall Collection, the largest collection of art by women in Europe.
