Kid Acne. A celebration in printmaking and illustration, this exhibition explores the notions of sampling and remixing and aims to highlight the distinction between ‘loving homage’ and ‘plagiarism’ – arguably a grey area within the art world today.
Part retrospective, Adaptations showcases selected artworks
from the Kid Acne archives, which pay dividends to seminal moments in
popular culture, such as his re-imagined versions of Wizbit, The Beastmaster, Paul’s Boutique and The Adventures of Baron Munchausen
– many of which are being shown in London for the very first time.
Alongside such pieces are new and exclusive works made specifically for
the show. Expect a heady mix of 80′s flashback and B-Boy decadence.
Duration: 7th March – 30th March
