Brian Eno was the first institutional solo exhibition by Scottish artist Lucy McKenzie at the Neuer Aachener Kunstverein, February 23 – April 27, 2003.

The installation of trompe l’oeil murals and screen-printed posters as well as drawings, sound and light took the symbolic figure Brian Eno as its starting point. As an extraordinary musician, educator, visual artist and “communications advisor” to British New Labor, Eno is emblematic of common debates about avant-garde and quality. Lucy McKenzie used this discourse as a background for her own interpretations of such questions, especially questions that concern functionalism.
