Modern Panic: Art As Provocation


The tenth Modern Panic art exhibition arrives at the Old Truman Brewery in London this November, bringing surreal, controversial and provocative art from a variety of creatives together.

The purpose behind Modern Panic has been to bring together art that is outside the cultural mainstream – even if the artists might be well known figures – in a variety of mediums – fine art, performance, sculture, photography and beyond. This year, the artists include H.R. Giger, Brontis Jodorowsky, Ralph Steadman, Lucy Sparrow and many more – some seventy in total so far.

Curated by James Elphick, it’s a pretty remarkable collection of work, from the established to the rising stars, and promises to be a fascinating experience for mature visitors only (leave the kids at homes for this one). It runs from the 9th to the 17th November 2019, 11am – 7pm at Truman Brewery, F Block S4, Ely’s Yard,
15 Hanbury Street, London E1 6QR. Tickets are £5 (plus booking fee) and you’ll need to book in advance here.
