The exhibition brings together works in a wide range of media including film, sculpture, painting and photography which all evoke a sense of the theatrical. Evoking the culture and history of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, Pale Carnage examines the relationship between Classicism and Modernism and their unsettling associations with fascism. The title of the exhibition has been taken from the poem 'April' written by Ezra Pound in 1915. Including both emerging and established artists, Pale Carnage focuses on the relationships formed between artworks in a space, creating new associations and dialogues for the viewer to uncover and explore. The exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue which includes a text by writer, novelist and cultural commentator Michael Bracewell, and a picture essay edited by Martin Clark, Curator of Pale Carnage. The catalogue is available from DCA shop priced £8.95. Exhibition originated by Arnolfini, Bristol
