Nineteeneightyfouria: by Shepard Fairey

2 - 23 November 2007

Shepard Fairey's artwork both scrutinises and distorts the narrative of the modern American Dream.

Nineteeneightyfouria - a reference to the surveillance culture of Orwell’s novel '1984'. An exhibition by Shepard Fairey, comprising of large scale multi media installations to smaller album screen prints. 


Commenting on underpinnings of what Shepard terms the “capitalist machine”, it aims to critique those who support blind nationalism and war. Fairey addresses monolithic institutional authority, the role of counter culture, and independent individuals who question the cultural paradigm.


Occupying a large industrial space at The Old Truman Brewey, this exhibition was the largest private gallery space in London.
