30/11/2021 Exhibition at Somerset House, Aldwych, London. October 21st until March 2022.
Curated by artist and Beano lover Andy Holden, the exhibition contains original artwork and artefacts from the magazine's archives as well as contributions from writers, musicians, painters, sculptors, and photographers, grouped together on the premise that they are all artistic rule breakers.
It is an impressive and longish list. For those who might be unfamiliar with some of the names here they are with links attached. Happy browsing.
