Gee Vaucher - exhibition

Gee Vaucher (1945) is an internationally renowned political artist living outside Epping, Essex. She is best known for her radical creativity, montages and iconic artwork for the infamous anarcho-pacifist band Crass. Employing an eclectic range of styles and techniques, coupled with an essentially DIY aesthetic, she creates powerful images exploring political, cultural and personal issues. She sees her work as a tool for social change.

This retrospective survey of Vaucher’s work is her premiere in the UK, bringing together for the first time a comprehensive collection of her paintings, collages, prints, photographs, videos and sculptures plus installation work and rare archive material.

MORE DETAILS OF the events that will accompany Gee Vaucher’s upcoming ‘Introspective’ exhibition, which will run from 12 November 2016 to 19 February 2017 at the Firstsite gallery space in Colchester have been published. Not all of the specifics are yet known, but these are some of the dates for the diary…

  • Friday 11 November 2016, 18:00-20:00: Private viewing of the exhibition, on the eve of the main opening; opening party
  • Saturday 19 November – Sunday 20 November 2016: The Print Project Workshop (featuring the Letterpress gang from Shipley)

  • Friday 2 December 2016: Eve Libertine and Charles Webber. Eve Libertine has written the lyrics for & is co-director of an exciting new chamber opera Room of Worlds for live voices, electronics and video. The opera charts the physical and psychological journey of a woman in a patriarchal landscape of domesticity, love and loneliness, through medicine and memory, to the edge of madness. Room of Worlds is based loosely on The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman and is the result of an ongoing collaboration between electronic artist Charles Webber (composer/video) & experimental vocalist and ex-Crass chanteuse Eve Libertine.
  • 13 January 2017: Penny Rimbaud reads the poetry of Wilfred Owen
  • 14-15 January 2017: Monoprint workshops with Eve & Pandora

Still from Well Done, Now Sod Off

‘Well Done, Now Sod Off’
Starring: Chumbawamba
Director: Ben Uwin
Hyde Park Picture House, 73 Brudenell Road, Leeds LS6 1JD
18 September 2016, 15:30.
Details online (donation on the door)

SYNOPSIS:
We couldn’t think of a more perfect film to screening in conjunction with the Leeds Music Us exhibition than Well Done, Now Sod Off, a potted and often hilarious history of Chumbawamba (90mins, United Kingdom, 2000)

Footage and interviews from the last two decades retrace the early days of communal living and involvement in the miners’ strike of 84-85, their survival through the Thatcher years and a barrage of bad press, surfacing in the nineties wiser but unrepentant.

With an uncanny knack of upsetting people and ‘shooting themselves in the foot’ they surprised themselves and the rest of the world by selling 5 million albums in America. Tagged ‘One Hit Wonders’ they ensured they’d never be invited to another award ceremony again by dousing the Deputy Prime Minisster at the Brit Awards in 1998. This is an ongoing punk saga in an age of manufactured bands.

TICKETS: Suggested donation of £5
