Good Grief, Charlie Brown! at Somerset House
This autumn, Somerset House presents GOOD GRIEF, CHARLIE BROWN! Celebrating Snoopy and the Enduring Power of Peanuts, and Metro Imaging is proud to have taken part in the production of this show, printing a series of large Duratrans for lightboxes looking astonishing at the entrance of the exhibition room.
GOOD GRIEF, CHARLIE BROWN! Celebrating Snoopy and the Enduring Power of Peanuts is curated by Somerset House’s Senior Curator Claire Catterall, and in partnership with the Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center, brings together the original drawings of the cartoon’s creator Charles M. Schulz with work from a wide range of acclaimed contemporary artists and designers who have been inspired by this highly influential and much-loved cartoon.
The exhibition features over 100 comic strips and personal artefacts from the Schulz Museum and works from contributors including: Andy Holden, David Musgrave, Fiona Banner, François Curlet, KAWS, Ken Kagami, Lucas Price, Mark Drew, Mark Mulroney, Mel Brimfield, Mira Calix, Ryan Gander and Steven Claydon; and unpacks the panels that tackle topics such as feminism, faith, racial equality and existentialism, standing as a testament to the power of popular arts.
Accompanying the exhibition is a rich programme of events and learning opportunities for all ages, as well as a beautifully illustrated exhibition catalogue featuring all the fascinating stories from the show.
