Majority under Division
A range of works exploring portraiture in the age of the ‘selfie’: themes of fear, anxiety and the faces of serial killers are among the diverse pieces presented by the 11 artists who form the MUD collective. Recycling, disposable objects and industrial materials form a counterpoint to the figurative thematic within this exhibition, which includes works that the audience can pick up and explore.
23 June – 2 July 2015, Guildhall, Grantham.
