The doubles series asks a mid career artist to invite another artist, with whom they have some form of educational or artistic relationship, to make an exhibition with them. In the seventh instalment of the series Lucy Clout has invited her mother Clare Charnley to collaborate with her.

Mintier is the updated version of blip blip blip’s annual exhibition Interim – taking its name from last year’s Ciara Phillips and Edwin Pickstone anagrammed letterpress poster edition. Now open to all current penultimate year BA Fine Art students at British art schools, this year the selectors Lucy Clout and Clare Charnley asked only for submissions of works that are performative in nature.
