About Linderism

Most well known for her photomontage, Linderism explores the diverse range of Linder’s practice. It explores Linder as performance artist, zine-maker, musician, documentary-photographer, collaborator, muse, guru, medium and body-builder.

Through the use of the Kettle’s Yard Archive, Linder also approaches Helen Ede’s elusive presence in Kettle’s Yard. Linder reinstates Helen through the creation of ‘House of Helen’, a brand of products available in the shop. A series of new commissions engage all five senses and see Linder staging interventions in all areas of Kettle’s Yard.

Linder was born in Liverpool in 1954 and was an active figure in the punk and post-punk music scenes. Probably best known for the album covers which she created, her photomontages often combine everyday images taken from fashion or home magazines with images from pornography.

About New Hall Art Collection

The New Hall Art Collection is a collection of modern and contemporary art by women on display at Murray Edwards College, University of Cambridge.

The Collection, which was founded in 1986 with the acquisition of Mary Kelly’s six-part work Extase, has evolved through gifts and loans from artists and alumnae and today includes over five hundred works by artists of international quality and renown – including Dame Paula Rego, Maggi Hambling CBE, Cornelia Parker RA, Sandra Blow RA, Lubaina Himid and Judy Chicago – and is considered to be one of the largest and most significant collections of contemporary art by women in the world.

On 7 March 2018, the New Hall Art Collection received accreditation from the Arts Council England.  Accreditation recognises the quality of the Collection and the professionalism with which it is managed, putting it on a level with major galleries throughout the UK.

Content Warning

The exploration of gender and sexuality is fundamental to Linder’s work. She uses imagery from different print materials, including pornography.

This exhibition contains some explicit images, which some visitors may find challenging and may not be suitable for younger visitors.
