AbstractThis group exhibition celebrated The Royal Standard’s coming of age as the gallery entered its tenth year of artist-led programming within the city (Liverpool). The 23 artist-strong retrospective showcased artists that have been collaboratively nominated by directors past and present, in recognition of their previous work for The Royal Standard and their careers as practitioners. Gettin’ the Heart Ready will give an opportunity to look back on The Royal Standard’s formative younger years, to show appreciation to those that have contributed to a successful decade, and to look forward and consider the prospects, the potential and the future of The Royal Standard. Fisher was invited to participate in the exhibition, showing works from his ongoing ‘Rioter’ and ‘Homemade Devices’ series within a site-specific (wall painting) installation. ‘Rioter (Memphis)’, was conceived and made specifically for the exhibition as a continuation of Fisher’s interest in pattern, camouflage, and the subversive potential of the decorative. Alongside this work, Fisher also exhibited a number of ‘Homemade Devices’ sculptures siting them in juxtaposition with the wall painting. Participating Artists: Jo Addison, Jonathan Baldock, David Blandy, Oliver Braid, Joe Crowdy, Jemma Egan, Craig Fisher, Matt De Kersaint Giraudeau, Michelle Hannah, Joe Hamilton, littlewhitehead, Celia Hempton, Holly Hendry, James Mclardy, Pil and Galia Kollectiv, Jake Laffoley, Liliane Lijn, Jess Flood Paddock, Mike Pratt, LOW PROFILE, Ailie Rutherford, Sam Smith, Dave Sherry.
