Inspired by Belgium’s, and particularly Antwerp’s rich histories of painting, fashion and music, British artist Linder has embarked on a long-term project at Objectif Exhibitions, leading up to and beyond a solo exhibition in Antwerp in 2017.
As part of her project, Linder is collaborating with the Fashion Department of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Antwerp, working with first-year bachelor students around a brief designed by the artist. The collaboration, coordinated by Walter Van Beirendonck and Maureen de Clercq, will bring Linder to Antwerp for a series of presentations to the students between February and May 2016, and for her participation in the Fashion Department’s Masters Jury in June.
Linder was born in 1954 in Liverpool, and lives and works in England. She has had numerous solo exhibitions at, among other venues, Dépendance, Brussels (2015, 2011); Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris (2013); Kestnergesellschaft, Hanover (2013); Goss Michael Foundation, Dallas (2012); Chisenhale Gallery, London (2010); and PS1/Museum of Modern Art, New York (2007). Two monographs have appeared on her work, the most recent published by Ridinghouse (2015).
