    2000AD is Britain’s cult sci-fi comic, and has been at the cutting edge of contemporary pop culture since 1977. It’s a multi-award winning cocktail of explosive sci-fi and fantasy, infused with a mean streak of irony and wry black humour. Imaginative, hard-hitting stories and eye-popping art have made 2000 AD essential reading for its legion of fiercely loyal fans for nearly 30 years now. For more info visit www.2000adonline.com

  • Exhibition: Andy Holden: As Speed Increases…
    All day
    01/03/2017-20/04/2017
    Peter Scott Gallery, Bailrigg, United Kingdom

    Peter Scott Gallery, Bailrigg, United Kingdom

    The result of five years’ work, Andy Holden’s Laws of Motion in a Cartoon Landscape presents a fully realised animated theory proposing the world is now best understood as a cartoon.

    Part-lecture, part-documentary, part-conspiracy theory, the film examines the formation of ‘laws’ within cartoons as a way of making sense of the world we live in. The artist’s avatar invites the viewer to experience a world where laws such as ‘Everything falls faster than an anvil’ are given the same critical attention as philosophy, physics and politics.

    Laws of Motion in a Cartoon Landscape is an hour long exploration of the world after the end of history: an irrational space where anything can happen, yet certain things reoccur.

    The film will be installed alongside a wider body of work connecting to this long-term project, including new films, prints and drawings.

    Andy Holden works in a variety of mediums. Past exhibitions of his work include ‘Chewy Cosmos Thingly Time’ (2011) at Kettle’s Yard, Cambridge and ‘Art Now: Andy Holden’ (2010) at TATE Britain exhibiting ‘Pyramid Piece’, an enormous knitted boulder based on piece of pyramid stolen from the great pyramid of Giza which he later returned.

    Other works include an adaptation of David Foster Wallace’s ‘Brief Interviews with Hideous Men’ for stage, performed at the ICA,[2] London (2012) and Arnolfini, Bristol, performance lectures with his father, ornithologist Peter Holden including ‘Lecture on Birdsong’ at TATE Britain, his lecture on cartoon physics titled, ‘Laws of Motion in a Cartoon Landscape’ and the ‘Dan Cox Library for the Unfinished Concept of Thingly Time’ in memory of his friend Dan Cox.

    Holden has also released several records with his band Grubby Mitts and co-runs the label Lost Toys Records. In 2010 he curated a festival of Artists’ Music at Wysing Arts Centre called Be Glad for the Song Has No End. He was a founding member of a small, Bedford-based art movement MI!MS Maximum Irony! Maximum Sincerity, which was the subject of his exhibition at London’s Zabludowicz Collection in 2013.

    Current Wonder Woman artist Liam Sharp is to be honoured in his home city of Derby with a special exhibition documenting his comics career later this year.

    Currently living and working in California, Derby-born writer and artist Liam Sharp is best known for his highly detailed comic work. His latest series, drawing Wonder Woman for top US comics publisher DC, has seen Liam receive worldwide acclaim.

    This exhibition at Derby’s Museum and Art Gallery, made possible with support from DC Entertainment, charts his 30 year career in comics, illustrating characters such as Judge Dredd, Death’s Head II, the Hulk, Spider-Man and iconic DC characters such as Superman and now Wonder Woman, as well as writing and illustrating his own unique creations.

    Liam is also the co-founder of the award-winning progressive digital storytelling company Madefire, taking words and pictures and adding sound and motion. Madefire recently produced the world’s first VR comics experience.

    The result of five years’ work, Andy Holden’s Laws of Motion in a Cartoon Landscape presents a fully realised animated theory proposing the world is now best understood as a cartoon.

    Part-lecture, part-documentary, part-conspiracy theory, the film examines the formation of ‘laws’ within cartoons as a way of making sense of the world we live in. The artist’s avatar invites the viewer to experience a world where laws such as ‘Everything falls faster than an anvil’ are given the same critical attention as philosophy, physics and politics.

    Laws of Motion in a Cartoon Landscape is an hour long exploration of the world after the end of history: an irrational space where anything can happen, yet certain things reoccur.

    The film will be installed alongside a wider body of work connecting to this long-term project, including new films, prints and drawings.

    Andy Holden works in a variety of mediums. Past exhibitions of his work include ‘Chewy Cosmos Thingly Time’ (2011) at Kettle’s Yard, Cambridge and ‘Art Now: Andy Holden’ (2010) at TATE Britain exhibiting ‘Pyramid Piece’, an enormous knitted boulder based on piece of pyramid stolen from the great pyramid of Giza which he later returned.

    Other works include an adaptation of David Foster Wallace’s ‘Brief Interviews with Hideous Men’ for stage, performed at the ICA,[2] London (2012) and Arnolfini, Bristol, performance lectures with his father, ornithologist Peter Holden including ‘Lecture on Birdsong’ at TATE Britain, his lecture on cartoon physics titled, ‘Laws of Motion in a Cartoon Landscape’ and the ‘Dan Cox Library for the Unfinished Concept of Thingly Time’ in memory of his friend Dan Cox.

    Holden has also released several records with his band Grubby Mitts and co-runs the label Lost Toys Records. In 2010 he curated a festival of Artists’ Music at Wysing Arts Centre called Be Glad for the Song Has No End. He was a founding member of a small, Bedford-based art movement MI!MS Maximum Irony! Maximum Sincerity, which was the subject of his exhibition at London’s Zabludowicz Collection in 2013.

      The result of five years’ work, Andy Holden’s Laws of Motion in a Cartoon Landscape presents a fully realised animated theory proposing the world is now best understood as a cartoon.

      Part-lecture, part-documentary, part-conspiracy theory, the film examines the formation of ‘laws’ within cartoons as a way of making sense of the world we live in. The artist’s avatar invites the viewer to experience a world where laws such as ‘Everything falls faster than an anvil’ are given the same critical attention as philosophy, physics and politics.

      Laws of Motion in a Cartoon Landscape is an hour long exploration of the world after the end of history: an irrational space where anything can happen, yet certain things reoccur.

      The film will be installed alongside a wider body of work connecting to this long-term project, including new films, prints and drawings.

      Andy Holden works in a variety of mediums. Past exhibitions of his work include ‘Chewy Cosmos Thingly Time’ (2011) at Kettle’s Yard, Cambridge and ‘Art Now: Andy Holden’ (2010) at TATE Britain exhibiting ‘Pyramid Piece’, an enormous knitted boulder based on piece of pyramid stolen from the great pyramid of Giza which he later returned.

      Other works include an adaptation of David Foster Wallace’s ‘Brief Interviews with Hideous Men’ for stage, performed at the ICA,[2] London (2012) and Arnolfini, Bristol, performance lectures with his father, ornithologist Peter Holden including ‘Lecture on Birdsong’ at TATE Britain, his lecture on cartoon physics titled, ‘Laws of Motion in a Cartoon Landscape’ and the ‘Dan Cox Library for the Unfinished Concept of Thingly Time’ in memory of his friend Dan Cox.

      Holden has also released several records with his band Grubby Mitts and co-runs the label Lost Toys Records. In 2010 he curated a festival of Artists’ Music at Wysing Arts Centre called Be Glad for the Song Has No End. He was a founding member of a small, Bedford-based art movement MI!MS Maximum Irony! Maximum Sincerity, which was the subject of his exhibition at London’s Zabludowicz Collection in 2013.

    The result of five years’ work, Andy Holden’s Laws of Motion in a Cartoon Landscape presents a fully realised animated theory proposing the world is now best understood as a cartoon.

    Part-lecture, part-documentary, part-conspiracy theory, the film examines the formation of ‘laws’ within cartoons as a way of making sense of the world we live in. The artist’s avatar invites the viewer to experience a world where laws such as ‘Everything falls faster than an anvil’ are given the same critical attention as philosophy, physics and politics.

    Laws of Motion in a Cartoon Landscape is an hour long exploration of the world after the end of history: an irrational space where anything can happen, yet certain things reoccur.

    The film will be installed alongside a wider body of work connecting to this long-term project, including new films, prints and drawings.

    Andy Holden works in a variety of mediums. Past exhibitions of his work include ‘Chewy Cosmos Thingly Time’ (2011) at Kettle’s Yard, Cambridge and ‘Art Now: Andy Holden’ (2010) at TATE Britain exhibiting ‘Pyramid Piece’, an enormous knitted boulder based on piece of pyramid stolen from the great pyramid of Giza which he later returned.

    Other works include an adaptation of David Foster Wallace’s ‘Brief Interviews with Hideous Men’ for stage, performed at the ICA,[2] London (2012) and Arnolfini, Bristol, performance lectures with his father, ornithologist Peter Holden including ‘Lecture on Birdsong’ at TATE Britain, his lecture on cartoon physics titled, ‘Laws of Motion in a Cartoon Landscape’ and the ‘Dan Cox Library for the Unfinished Concept of Thingly Time’ in memory of his friend Dan Cox.

    Holden has also released several records with his band Grubby Mitts and co-runs the label Lost Toys Records. In 2010 he curated a festival of Artists’ Music at Wysing Arts Centre called Be Glad for the Song Has No End. He was a founding member of a small, Bedford-based art movement MI!MS Maximum Irony! Maximum Sincerity, which was the subject of his exhibition at London’s Zabludowicz Collection in 2013.

  • Exhibition: Andy Holden: As Speed Increases…
    All day
    16/03/2017-05/05/2017
    Peter Scott Gallery, Bailrigg, United Kingdom

    Peter Scott Gallery, Bailrigg, United Kingdom

    The result of five years’ work, Andy Holden’s Laws of Motion in a Cartoon Landscape presents a fully realised animated theory proposing the world is now best understood as a cartoon.

    Part-lecture, part-documentary, part-conspiracy theory, the film examines the formation of ‘laws’ within cartoons as a way of making sense of the world we live in. The artist’s avatar invites the viewer to experience a world where laws such as ‘Everything falls faster than an anvil’ are given the same critical attention as philosophy, physics and politics.

    Laws of Motion in a Cartoon Landscape is an hour long exploration of the world after the end of history: an irrational space where anything can happen, yet certain things reoccur.

    The film will be installed alongside a wider body of work connecting to this long-term project, including new films, prints and drawings.

    Andy Holden works in a variety of mediums. Past exhibitions of his work include ‘Chewy Cosmos Thingly Time’ (2011) at Kettle’s Yard, Cambridge and ‘Art Now: Andy Holden’ (2010) at TATE Britain exhibiting ‘Pyramid Piece’, an enormous knitted boulder based on piece of pyramid stolen from the great pyramid of Giza which he later returned.

    Other works include an adaptation of David Foster Wallace’s ‘Brief Interviews with Hideous Men’ for stage, performed at the ICA,[2] London (2012) and Arnolfini, Bristol, performance lectures with his father, ornithologist Peter Holden including ‘Lecture on Birdsong’ at TATE Britain, his lecture on cartoon physics titled, ‘Laws of Motion in a Cartoon Landscape’ and the ‘Dan Cox Library for the Unfinished Concept of Thingly Time’ in memory of his friend Dan Cox.

    Holden has also released several records with his band Grubby Mitts and co-runs the label Lost Toys Records. In 2010 he curated a festival of Artists’ Music at Wysing Arts Centre called Be Glad for the Song Has No End. He was a founding member of a small, Bedford-based art movement MI!MS Maximum Irony! Maximum Sincerity, which was the subject of his exhibition at London’s Zabludowicz Collection in 2013.

    Currently living and working in California, Derby-born writer and artist Liam Sharp is best known for his highly detailed comic work. His latest series, drawing Wonder Woman for top US comics publisher DC, has seen Liam receive worldwide acclaim.

    This exhibition at Derby’s Museum and Art Gallery, made possible with support from DC Entertainment, charts his 30 year career in comics, illustrating characters such as Judge Dredd, Death’s Head II, the Hulk, Spider-Man and iconic DC characters such as Superman and now Wonder Woman, as well as writing and illustrating his own unique creations.

    Liam is also the co-founder of the award-winning progressive digital storytelling company Madefire, taking words and pictures and adding sound and motion. Madefire recently produced the world’s first VR comics experience.
