Modern Panic X - A Decade Of Panic : Rebellious, visceral, non-conformist, confrontational and revelatory. Modern Panic comes to Truman Brewery to celebrate its momentous tenth anniversary of surreal, controversial and provocative art.


For the past decade this annual exhibition has spearheaded and given a voice to artists whose work does not fit traditional galleries. Its ethos embodies how art should elicit a response, cause a reaction and be transformative, by challenging audiences with its disruptive energy, through a variety of mediums; including fine art, sculpture, photography, live art, film and events.

Modern Panic is a riotous celebration of the subversive, featuring over 70 artists exploring the human psyche through pop surrealism, dark art, magic realism and more, for these most uncertain of times.

“Art that reflects contemporary society and explores where the moral compass of the viewer lies in these volatile times”
James Elphick, Modern Panic Curator

“There is hope and a kind of beauty in there somewhere, if you look for it”
H.R. Giger, Artist
