Linden Centre of Contemporary Arts presents an ambitious homage to Australian artist Mike Brown (1938-1997). Brown challenged the art world through periods of pornographic collage to political satire and commentary. Like Mike, Now What?? is a unique collaborative project and spreads across five Melbourne galleries. It is a celebration of his life and work and the impact Brown continues to have on the next generation of artists.

 

Like Mike Now What?? includes sprawling site-specific installation, paintings, collage, appropriation and collaboration by eight Melbourne artists. There is Fergus Binns' meditations on appropriation to Paul Yore's libidinous carnivalesque environments; Jan Lucas's meticulous embroideries; Simon Pericichs's piles of precious junk; Trevelyan Clay & Kate Smith's elastic collaborative paintings and father son team Alex and Nick Selenitsch's personal tribute to their friend and mentor, Mike Brown.
