This zine-style publication has been produced to accompany the exhibition The Hecklers, curated by Cedar Lewisohn at The New Art Gallery Walsall, 19 July – 22 September 2013.
A heckler is someone who tries to unsettle others with questions, challenges or jibes. This exhibition and publication bring together a range of artists who comment on social and political issues, often with a degree of playfulness. Woven through the exhibition is an exploration of ideas around ‘primitivism’ and the re-working of modernist ideologies in the present day.
For the publication, each of the artists were asked to contribute a page. These visual contributions are supplemented with a brief introduction by Cedar Lewisohn and a specially commissioned text by BAZ.
Limited edition of 1500.
