The culmination of an 18-month collaboration with the Collection, it will include film, large-scale sculpture and performance to explore the output and legacy of the MI!MS (Maximum Irony! Maximum Sincerity) artistic movement, which Holden founded with friends before training as an artist in 2003. The movement’s manifesto stated “MI!MS is about the willingness to be lied to and the will to believe! It’s about the intense sadness of our unrealistic dreams, and the intense joy of our desire for them.”

This is Holden’s most ambitious project to date. The exhibition will include collaborations with the other founding MI!MS members: John Blamey, Roger Illingworth, James MacDowell and Johnny Parry.

He curated Be Glad For the Song Has No End – A Festival of Artists’ Music at Wysing Arts Centre in 2010.In 2012 he received a fellowship from te Stanley Picker Gallery in Kingston, where he developed the exhibition Laws of Motion in a Cartoon Landscapean elaboration in space of the ideas presented in the lecture of the same name. In the lecture staged by Andy Holden together with curator Tyler Woolcott, the pair put forward an idea that we can use the laws of physics as they appear in cartoons to help us devise a possible way of understanding the landscape “after the end of art history…a landscape where it seems like anything might be possible, but not everything is, there are rules that begin to emerge as we make observations”. The Laws of Motion in Cartoon Landscape Lecture was restaged at Swedenborg House, Bloombsbury, in January 2013 to accompany the Stanley Picker Gallery exhibition.
