Retrospective of BB’s work opens soon in Madrid.
Visitors to La Casa Encendida, a stellar cultural centre in Madrid, are being introduced to artist Bobby Baker’s extraordinary universe in a brand new retrospective.
The exhibition Tarros de Chutney is in Madrid from February 22nd to April 21st 2019.
The exhibition provides an insight into the richness and relevance of Baker’s body of work and features early paintings, sketch books, story boards and prints including the acclaimed Diary Drawings.
For the first time a collection of ‘Timed Drawings’, made by Baker in 1984 when her children were small will be shown alongside a video produced especially for the exhibition by curator Clara Zarza.
As well as a performance of Drawing on a (Grand) Mothers Experience the exhibition launches a commission for Baker’s current project in development EPIC DOMESTIC.
“EPIC DOMESTIC is my plan to create a Domestic Revolutionary Party fit for the Twenty First Century.
For this exhibition I’ve made the First Official Propaganda Poster with Adam Hogarth – copies of this important Campaign Aid are free to New Party Members at the show, for the spreading of the word.
There’s also the First Trial Wall Painting.
I am the leader of this EPIC Party but am looking for other highly skilled domestic experts to join in this important artistic crusade.
My aim is that we will take to the streets wearing exquisite, strange yet utilitarian outfits to campaign for a New World where we are finally rewarded for our grossly undervalued domestic labour.”
