11th June - 27th 2021, Glasgow International
Don’t Let The Bastards Grind You Down is an exhibition of exhibitionists, starring Liv Fontaine, Paul Kindersley, and Huhtamaki Wab. Known for creating larger-than-life personae, these artists explore the surreal, the political, and the outrageous within their own lives and wider society. Their diverse practices also span painting, performance, film, and social media.
Fontaine, Kindersley, and Wab may be better known for their work in film or performance, but by bringing the three together, the project draws attention to the paintings and drawings that underpin each artist’s practice. Expect whimsical scenes of joy, depravity and all the in-between messiness of lives lived in public and in private.
Wheelchair accessible, on street parking available and limited on site parking. Contact Skypark for more information.
The work in this show was developed during 2020/21 as part of Cabbage's Resilience Programme. In addition to the exhibition, Cabbage commissioned a film of the same name, Don't Let The Bastards Grind You Down. Please see here to find out more and watch the film.
