Curated London

The Serpentine Gallery has staged an exhibition of work by the Chapman Brothers to put their new Sackler Gallery firmly on the map. Featuring new material alongside past collections, the show contains some highly original pieces. Overall though, it feels like it’s trying too hard to be shocking, and the results are rather mixed. The overcrowded nature of this exhibition stifles the individual pieces by forcing them to compete for attention. Putting Ku Klux Klansmen in rainbow socks and Birkenstocks is a great way of poking fun at the vile organisation, but endlessly repeating the concept throughout the exhibition makes it look like they’d run out of ideas. Similarly, the 83 framed illustrations tightly mounted together are one of several examples where the exhibition feels like a lesson in quantity over quality. It’s free and worth a look, particularly if you’re passing through Hyde Park, but probably not worth a special trip. Also, while some of the images are unsettling to grown-ups, it’s really not as bad for kids as you might think. For more of the latest arts reviews, check out www.curatedlondon.co.uk
