NeXus Arts, in association with Droichead Arts Centre, exhibited a 40 year retrospective of Gee Vaucher, the iconic visual artist and former member/artist of the legendary Anarcho Punk Band ‘Crass’.
Coinciding with the show several complementary events were organised such as the display of film ‘There is no authority but yourself’ which was shown on the opening night, an artist talk, a screen print workshop and a performance by Penny Rimbaud & Louise Elliott.
NeXus Arts sees this as one of its most exciting projects to date due to the fact that although Gee Vaucher has exhibited all over the world she has never had a solo exhibition of her work in Ireland. This show was exclusive to Drogheda and sparked a lot of interest both locally, nationally and even internationally.
ABOUT GEE VAUCHER
Gee Vaucher was born in post-war Dagenham, Essex, and the wholesale slavery demanded by Fords, who owned just about everything to do with the place, including most of its people. Using her childhood experiences, she leapt into the broader world beyond in an attempt to understand what the hell was going on and why it had to be like this. Inside and out, she’s still at it, determined and resolute as ever.
