Linder's Flag and Film: Artist's 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.
