Linder

Linder's Flag and Film: Launch Event

Event

One of the most significant feminist artists of her generation, Linder has created interventions of uncanny glamour and enchantment in Glasgow’s East End. Site specific works include a spectacular flag commissioned for the Library’s façade, drawing upon the feminist and pop culture artefacts in the Library’s collection. Linder has also created a film work, shot on location at the Mary Queen of Scots Bower, Chatsworth, Derbyshire where the anointed queen spent some of the fifteen years she was detained under the jurisdiction of Elizabeth I.

Launch Event: Meet us at Glasgow Green at dawn to experience the ethereal glow as the sun rises over the flow of the Clyde. Your senses will be awash with sights, sounds, tastes and scents as we launch Linder’s Flag and Film.

The meeting point at the Green will be revealed nearer the time, and you’re invited to walk with us back to GWL after the launch where breakfast will be served.

Free event, booking required via womenslibrary.org.uk or call 0141 550 2267

Linder's Flag and Film: Artist's Talk

Event
Talk

One of the most significant feminist artists of her generation, Linder has created interventions of uncanny glamour and enchantment in Glasgow’s East End.

Her site specific works include a spectacular flag commissioned for the Library’s façade, drawing upon the feminist and pop culture artefacts in the Library’s collection. Linder has also created a film work, shot on location at the Mary Queen of Scots Bower, Chatsworth, Derbyshire, where the anointed queen spent some of the fifteen years she was detained under the jurisdiction of Elizabeth I.

In discussion Linder will speak about the germination of the new works created for Glasgow Women’s Library and the serendipitous, fascinating synergy between two sites and collections, GWL and Chatsworth, both charged with the histories of female agency, feminine excess and glamour. This is a rare opportunity to hear from a creative feminist trailblazer and the inspiring recipient of the prestigious Paul Hamlyn Foundation Award.
