Lot Details

This print was produced in conjunction with Deller’s 1996 performance piece entitled “Acid Brass.” In the performance, Deller had a coal pit brass band play acid house anthems, and created a drawing that mapped the connections between the world of acid house music and miners’ brass bands. The drawing served as a basis for the print, and the performance was recorded and presented on CD. As a whole, the work symbolized the possibility of a productive collaboration between the old and new cultures. An edition of this work is part of the permanent collection of the Tate.

Jeremy Deller (b. 1966) is an English conceptual artist whose works engage audiences through the intersection of popular and traditional culture. His works also tend to have political undertones that relate to international current events. Deller received his MA in Art History from the University of Sussex. His work has been shown in exhibitions at venues worldwide including the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, and the New Museum, New York, among others. In 2004, Deller was awarded the Turner Prize for his show at the Tate Britain.
