CURRENT EXHIBITION at the Political Cartoon Gallery and Cafe
David Low Censored 4 June - 25 October 2019
An exhibition of original unpublished cartoons by the greatest cartoonist of the 20th Century, Sir David Low. These are cartoons the Evening Standard felt were either too strong or in too bad taste to publish. Some of these directly upset Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini as well as Winston Churchill. David Low was the first cartoonists to be given a contract which gave him a completely free hand as a political cartoonist but did the proprietor he worked for honour that agreement? The exhibition will be accompanied by the publication of a fully illustrated book on the subject.
DAYLIGHT RUBBERY 4 June to 25 October 2019
When he was knee-high to a very short thing, Roger Todd was captivated by a magazine cover of grotesque sculptures depicting politicians of the day. Who those figures were, and who created them, were mysteries at the time, but the wild facial distortions made a deep impression. Years later, startlingly similar monsters came to life in Spitting Image and Roger at last learned who their creators were: Fluck & Law. But then the boring world of college, work and university intervened. Many years passed before he began to sculpt his own grotesqueries: busts, puppets and novelty figurines resulted. Along the way he met his heroes Luck & Flaw, upset Michael Gove's wife Sarah Vine, and saw his puppets appear on television (in Channel 4's The Last Leg). This exhibition is the latest leg of a winding journey.
