Pop Culture Phenomena
What is it that makes a celebrity exceptional in our eyes, could it be a recently developed social malady tragically reinforced by the romanticised notions of disturbed artists and the 27 club? This year Critical Animals will be presenting a topical panel based around pop culture’s obsession with celebrity and what happens when reality intervenes and the good die young. Join a panel of artists, critics and social commentators – collaborating in a discussion on death, creation and the pull towards celebrity.
Octapod and The Lock-Up present Critical Animals as part of This is Not Art.
