A pop-up exhibition by Jason Williamson of Sleaford Mods and Cold War Steve of McFadden’s Cold War is coming to Disgraceland in Middlesbrough from Friday 8th until Friday 15th March.

It’s set to be a showcase of bleak, angry, brutal and absurd work that is not for the feint hearted. It makes for an explosive exhibition which tries to make sense of a country in crisis and explore how it is we ended up here. The venue is perfect for it, with the parallels between the space and the work conjuring up thought-provoking sentiment. Montages from Cold War Steve and the scrawlings and text-based posters of Williamson should make this something memorable, and evoking thoughts of strike placards and captures the world of post-industrial towns and grass roots places for a true snapshot of the national zeitgeist.
