In the spring of 2020 Cold War Steve is launching his new exhibition project and this time it’s hopefully going to be worldwide, with your help.
The follow up to the hit debut ’A Brief History of the World (1953-2018)’ is a high resolution, free to download and display exhibition for the people. The entire exhibition will be hosted on a public link for anyone to download and put up anywhere they choose. The exhibition could run in your local library, a pub, front room, back garden, doctors surgery, music venue . . or even a gallery.
23 CWS classics and future classics will be available via coldwarsteve.com from 12:04pm on Feb 1 2020. The exhibition pack will include a poster template to promote your exhibition, some basic guidelines for print but no set rules. Curate your own exhibition in any order and any size, print locally and spread the word!
CWS encourage the use of local places where people can gather safely to see the work together, ideally social and creative spaces but anywhere that people can enjoy and discuss the artwork, explain who Alan Brazil is to the younger viewers, debate the inclusion of Shipman and West, and of course spot Cilla. Adequate fun for the whole community.
‘You, Me and Cold War Steve – The International Exhibition of the People’ will run from April 1st to May 1st 2020 in as yet to be decided locations!
To get involved all you need to do is download the files, find a space, promote the exhibition and contact CWS to let them know so they can help and maybe even visit!
Cold War Steve aka Christopher Spencer is an artist from Birmingham, England who specialises in surreal, satirical and hilarious collages originally made on his phone and iPad. Since 2016 Cold War Steve’s Twitter account with almost daily posts has been a lifeline to many in these dark times with his following increasing by the day.
Three solo exhibitions, two books with Thames & Hudson, commissions for the National Galleries of Scotland and the Whitworth in Manchester, a giant billboard installation at Glastonbury Festival and an international TIME magazine cover have all followed in the last year.
