Concentrating on British art produced during Harold Wilson’s Labour government and the election of Margaret Thatcher, the pieces in this exhibition are politically-motivated, visceral and inspiring. The display explores the material, aesthetic and philosophical conditions used to create art, and questions the very nature of art itself.

Pushing the limits of convention, underrated British artists such as Bruce McLean, Stephen Willats, feminist Mary Kelly and humorous Keith Arnatt use text and photography to examine how art can engage with the modern world.
