Jeremy Deller: Joy in People
1 June - 9 August 2012
This exhibition incorporates almost all of Jeremy Deller's major works to date including installations, parade floats, photographs, videos, posters, banners, performance works and sound pieces. In addition, it will feature a reconstruction of Open Bedroom, the artist's first exhibition held in his parent's bedroom in 1993, and many other works that never saw an exhibition space. Deller produces a new, narrative diaprojection, in which he describes many of his public interventions and nongallery projects. Another part of the show is the section titled 'My Failures,' with only unrealized projects. From the title shields to the special costumes he made for the museum attendants, this exhibition reflects the witty playfulness, the generosity of ideas and the intelligent provocation of his work.
