International Stuckists

In October 2000 artist Regan Tamanui* started the Melbourne Stuckists, staging a Real Turner Prize Show concurrent with the Stuckists' London exhibition. Mary von Stockhausen formed the Lewenhagen Stuckists in Germany a month later.

The Stuckists 'franchised' Stuckism so that interested artists could form their own independent groups, named after their location and based on the model of linked but separately run sites on the web. In 1999 there was one group; now there are 90 in 22 countries (Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, England, France, Germany, Greece, Ivory Coast, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Jersey, Poland, Scotland, Spain, Sweden, USA and Wales).

Jeffrey Scott Holland* of the mid-Kentucky Stuckists organised a travelling show of Stuckist paintings in America in 2001. Elsa Dax curated a Stuckist show in Paris the same year. Jesse Richards and co in New Haven, USA, opened a gallery in 2002 and staged demonstrations including the 2003 anti-war Clown Trial of President Bush on the steps of the New Haven Federal Courthouse.

*The work of Tamanui and Holland is not represented in the Walker Art Gallery's exhibition.
