Linder Sterling’s epic vision combines Sergio Leone’s Spaghetti Westerns, the foundation of the Shaker movement and the contemporary urban hinterland of Manchester. This ambitious multimedia work is as unique and radical as the artist herself. With a track record of over twenty years fusing glamour with confrontation, Sterling rebuilds herself to resemble Clint Eastwood, exploring issues of masculinity and violence through film and photography.
In Conversation: Linder Sterling with Philip Hoare
Thursday 11 May, 6.30 – 8.00pm
Philip Hoare, biographer of Noel Coward, author of Wilde’s Last Stand and co-curator of the touring exhibition Icons of Pop, was also an early punk propagandist, publishing Linder Sterling’s graphics in the fanzine Elemental in the late 70s. This ‘In Conversation’ will be an opportunity to discuss Linder Sterling’s roots in punk and its legacy for her current work in The Return of Linderland. Touching on ideas around social dissension, the artist as performer and the influence of pop culture in Sterling’s work, this event will act as a forum for debate with opportunities for questions from the audience. Tickets from Box Office: £3.50 full / £2.50 concessions
