A heckler is someone who ties to unsettle others with questions, challenges or jibes. This exhibition brings together a range of artists who comment on social or political issues, often with a degree of playfulness. Woven through the exhibition is an exploration of ideas around “primitivism” and the re-working of modernist ideologies in the present day.
The exhibition includes photography, video, painting, sculpture, printmaking, performance and installation. A range of beer mats designed by artists Sarah Baker. M-CITY, Bob and Roberta Smith and Gavin Turk are presented offsite at The Black Country Arms in Walsall.
