26 October 2012
'Moral Holiday' presents the work of two generations of artists who have created works largely in lens-based media from still photographs to film or video. All stage what might be called 'thought experiments' that query the existing moral order, and dramatise ethical quandaries by inverting social norms or expectations. The exhibition brings together seminal works by radical artists who came to prominence in the late 1960s and early 1970s, alongside works by younger artists from Amsterdam, Belfast, Lisbon, Glasgow and London, including gallery artist David Shrigley.

Artists: Bruce Nauman, VALIE EXPORT, Gordon Matta-Clark, Stuart Brisley, Gilbert & George, David Shrigley, Phil Collins, Ryan Gander, Joao Onofre, Murray Ballard, Martin Kellett, Darren Cullen, Sara Punshon, Rafael Rozendaal, Nicholas Keogh, Clarita Lulic, Marjolaine Ryley, Pablo Wendel, Edwin Li, Gaetano Pesce, Teal Griffin.

The exhibition runs from 26 October 2012 to 12 January 2013.
