    Innovators 1 16 May 2014 - 22 June 2014 Linden’s Innovators series of exhibitions presents new and innovative contemporary art. Artists include, Jessie Bullivant, littlewhitehead, curated by David Hagger, Nicholas Ives, James Bonnici and Amelie Scalercio, Britt Salt and Jasmine Targett. The exhibition hosts an array of new site specific installation, sculpture, painting and an earthwork. We caught up with David Hagger of blackartprojects and curator of littlewhitehead's exhibition, 'Inner Refuge'. Hagger touches on the collaborative backgrounds of the Scottish born duo and their ability to insert wry black humour into their art practice. Hagger also unboxes some of littlewhitehead's earlier pieces which he will be exhibiting in Melbourne, Australia this year.

      Laughter is universal; it transcends culture, trends, and time. The art world, however, is not considered to be droll. Galleries and museums are stoic, intellectual spaces and works of art are discussed in academic terms. Yet in this scholarly world there are artists that buck conventions and use humor to engage us and make us laugh and think. Art is a medium of communication and the artists in this issue have found that humor is the most powerful way to engage their audience and convey their message. This class clowns issue of Beautiful/Decay is dedicated to those artists who pack their work not only with meaning but with a powerful punch line that keeps us coming back for more. Join us as we delve into the world of Winnie Truong’s surreal and funny portraits, and find the humor in Devin Troy Strother’s discomfort with his own race. Witness how Maurizio Cattelan has become the art world’s premier prankster and gain insight into artistic duo littlewhitehead’s mixture of dark humor and lo-tech fabrication. View our cover artist Stefan Glerum’s arresting illustrations, and Ben Aqua’s subversive photography. See how William Powhida’s cynical, self-deprecating, and universally criticizing works take the role of the court jester to a new level. As if that weren’t enough to keep you busy, we’ve also invited an international cast of artists, illustrators, and designers to create original works for our Project Pages based on our theme. So get out your X-ray specs as we explore the worlds of Beautiful/Decay’s class clowns. Get your limited edition copy at beautifuldecay.com

        Neds, villains, and cherry coke are some of the few things Glasgow based artists Littlewhitehead draw inspiration from. Responding to the invitation of a conventional interview the duo produced an atmospheric video artwork that invites the viewer to their way of thinking and making. http://www.vitamin-magazine.com/ http://www.littlewhitehead.com/

          How Art Things? is an exhibition with works on display in which the status and role of art itself is the subject. The goals of Nest the past years have developed as a reaction on the relationship between art and society and especially the role of the art institute concerning the presentation and status of the arts. Within each Nestproject strategic choices are made to communicate the work in a way which benefits the accessibility of the art. The past years we continuously kept an eye open for artists who in their work deal with the subject of art itself, its presentation and its audience. The selection of How Art Things? is the result.
