Socialist Worker

Say It As It Is

Issue No. 2086

This exhibition highlights four contemporary artists and their takes on modern society.

Featured artists include Holly Thoburn, Harry Simmonds and Guy Denning, who all display work of significant power.

But the stand-out artist is Barbara Walker. She focuses on the life of her son, a young black man, and the area in which the family lives.

The background to the pictures are blown-up newspaper pages with articles about the police shoouting of Jean Charles de Menezes and stop and search tickets.

They say a lot about the authoritarian Britain we live in today.

Say It As It Is
Exhibition until 23 February
Signal Gallery, 96a Curtain Road, London EC2
