Exhibition Launch: Linder - The House of Fame

Featuring The Death of Rave

23 Mar 2018

Join us to celebrate the launch of an ambitious new exhibition by Linder, The House of Fame. Be the first to see the show, experience live music, and party the night away in our bar.
The House of Fame is an ambitious exhibition convened 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.
Linder's work 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 wide-ranging collaborations.
Live Music: The Death of Rave
We are excited to announce our music line-up for our upcoming exhibition launch, The House of Fame by Linder. We host The Death of Rave, a record label and collective, exploring the darker corners of electronic music, hauntology and the deconstruction and reanimation of dance music. Performers include: Maxwell Sterling, James Ferraro, Conor Thomas, CROWW, and Teresa Winter.
