The collection of collages, caricatures, paintings, photography and installation sparks with light relief and delves deeper into thought-provoking social commentary. Highlights include a sobering confrontation of poverty in the ‘squalid realism’ of Turner-nominated artist Richard Billingham's Ray's A Laugh photo series. Chilean sculptor Alejandra Prieto hollows out our understanding of luxury by elevating worthless lumps of coal into covetable commodities. And Jessica Craig-Martin's glossy high society shots squewer the shallow and fickle nature of fame.
From bombastic riffs of pop culture to potent political protest, the Black Mirror exhibition invites us to question the status quo this autumn.
