The Lurid World
George Paton Gallery
Opening hours 11am-5pm

The Lurid World exhibition celebrates cross-disciplinary visual artists as part of Mudfest 2017.

Considering the notions and boundaries of space, material and light, The Lurid World invites the audience to take part as creator and spectator.  In the exhibition, current issues such as the under-representation of female perspectives, media oversaturation and disposable attitudes towards consumer goods are explored in exciting new ways.  However, rather than present a dystopian view of the world, The Lurid World emphasises the importance of hope in contemporary times.  Black light spectacles, video works, text installations, sculptures and paintings come together to highlight the power individuals have to effect change.

The Lurid World is an incubator for new thoughts and ideas. The exhibition suggests that by acknowledging contemporary fears, we can hatch a more hopeful future.

Exhibiting artists: Tori Adams, Haydn Allen, Lief Chan, Marley Holloway-Clarke, Serena Cowie, Amie Green, Lara Navaro
