Good storytelling strengthens social movements
Fever Press is a forthcoming exhibition featuring six artists and designers dealing with contemporary political issues. The exhibition will open at London College of
Communication (LCC) from Monday 2 February 2009.
Artists featured in the exhibition cover a wide range of media within their practice, including photography, print, film, performance and painting. The group collectively work to challenge areas of political unrest. They seek to create work that will inspire change and direct action through graphic image making.
Leigh Clarke said: In today’s political climate…new challenges arise in relationship to the media and form in which communication takes its shape. Contemporary warfare is virtual and information is delivered and shared ubiquitously, sometimes revealing obscenities and travesties beyond media restrictions enforced by our Governments…The function of visual communication in this political age is one of reaction as opposed to that which informs and inspires.

Open to public: Monday 2 February until Friday 20 February 2009, 10.00am to 6.00pm
