About

Liadin Cooke's exhibition Holden, shown in the Artists' House, is a series of watercolour drawings, embroideries and new sculptures made in response to the work of Peter Stead. Stead (1922-1999) was a Huddersfield-born builder, designer, teacher, gallery owner and visionary urban thinker involved in the designing and building of modernist houses in Huddersfield. He was also involved in the early days of urban design as an academic discipline and worked for many years as a consultant in the field of self-build housing. Stead believed strongly in the de Stijl ideal of life and art being one. Cooke's new work raises questions about this modernist dialogue and its accompanying social agendas. It comes out of an enquiry into where and how we live in today's culturally diverse, multi-visual, DIY world.
