This year's exhibition offers a rare opportunity to see the work of political agitator and savage satirst, gonzo artist Ralph Steadman, who is famed for his work with Hunter S Thompson and William S Burroughs. Also exhibiting is the artist best known for his countless collaborations with Neil Gaiman (Sandman, MirrorMask), his illustration of Batman's Arkham Asylum along with his album art for countless musicians, from The Rolling Stones to Bill Laswell, the irrepressible Dave McKean.
With over 60 contributing artists, show highlights include engaging works by the phenomenal Franko B, felt provocateur Lucy Sparrow, ceramist artivist Carrie Reichardt and Mutoid Waste robotic artist Giles Walker.
Alongside are the rising insurgent upstarts, including mind-warping street artist The Krah; Danish surrealist David Dellagi; uncompromising social political artist Glenn Fitzpatrick's take on the oil industry; the futuristic insectoid mechanist works of Mike Turner; photorealistic pop artist LG White's foray into the fall of classical civilisation; Sarah Jane Jones' exceptional african child sculpture, a study which tackles poverty and hunger; and Roisin Larkin's branded body parts, a foreboding insight into the future of consumerism.
There will be a radical live art and performance programme kicking off with the Panic Ephermeral Live Art opening night on Friday 13th November. An opportunity to meet many of the exhibiting artists and to see immersive and subversive performances throughout the evening, the show includes the legendary Louis Fleischauer's Aesthetic Meat Front presenting a powerful work not for the faint of heart; a one-on-one virtual reality, fully immersive experience by Trendscendence; a performance homage to Ralph Steadman by the fiery Snake Fervor and durational installations by MisSa Blue and Glenn Fitzpatrick.
