Coronavirus Temporary Closure

We are very sad to say that Kettle’s Yard has taken the decision to
close and cancel or postpone all events in light of the developing situation with the spread of COVID-19.

This means that the ‘Six Senses: a series of talks: Extra Sensory Perception’ talk on 17 April has been cancelled.

We will be sharing as much content digitally as we can.

You can keep up to date with our latest updates on our website.

The Six Senses: Extra Sensory Perception

The talk will led by Frank Bowles, Superintendent at Cambridge University Library.

About Linderism

Most well known for her photomontage, this exhibition 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.

Access

The galleries on the ground floor are fully accessible. They can be accessed easily from the entrance area by steps or a ramp.

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.

Please ask a member of our visitor services team for more information.
