The Connor Brothers Take New York | Opening Night and New Prints

Jan 24, 2019

Artists to Watch, The Connor Brothers, just opened their first solo show in the United States. In conjunction with this, we have a brand new collection of works available. Taking place at New York's Chase Contemporary, the opening night of 'A Dangerous Idea', was a great success. Hang-Up, of course, couldn't miss it... Read on to see what went down on Thursday night and enjoy the selection of prints we have to offer.

A Load of Fuss About Fuck All

We are pleased to offer a collection of unique prints by The Connor Brothers 'A Load of Fuss About Fuck All' in celebration of their first solo show in The United States. These are part of an edition of 50 unique prints, all of which are hand-finished in varying colours. We are expecting a high volume of interest in these prints, so please get in touch to avoid disappointment.

What makes this collection even more special is that 'A Load of Fuss About Fuck All' was actually the first slogan/artwork The Connor Brothers made. As they revealed in our interview with them for Hang-Ten the idea behind the print came from when they were in school reading Much Ado About Nothing and as they recall "writing on the cover a contemporary version of the title - A Load Of Fuss About Fuck All. Twenty years later it became our first painting".

The Connor Brothers have been a Hang-Up favourite for a long time so it's needless to say we were very excited to attend their first solo show in New York. Entitled 'A Dangerous Idea' the show opened on Thursday, January 31st at Chase Contemporary. On show were new works by the artist duo, made in 2018, including oil on canvas paintings, hand-painted works on paper, limited edition prints and of course their signature hand-painted vintage books.
