The Horror Show! A Twisted Tale of Modern Britain at Somerset House
Work by Anne Bean will be included in The Horror Show! A Twisted Tale of Modern Britain at Somerset House, open 27 Oct 2022 – 19 Feb 2023.
The Horror Show! is a landmark exhibition that invites visitors to journey to the underbelly of Britain’s cultural psyche and look beyond horror as a genre, instead taking it as a reaction to our most troubling times. Featuring over 200 artworks and culturally significant artefacts from some of our country’s most provocative artists, the exhibition presents an alternative perspective on the last five decades of modern British history in three acts – Monster, Ghost and Witch. Recast as a story of cultural shapeshifting, each section interprets a specific era through the lens of a classic horror archetype with thematically linked contemporaneous and new works.
