American icons in the zombie state

This exhibition from Chicago-based Welsh artist Jon Langford features some 50 works on the theme of his love/hate relationship with what he calls zombie America, the America where he lives; the works criticise the rotten heart of American politics and economy, and extol the country's culture. The subtitle Lanford proposes for his exhibition also helps further define it: 'Songs and paintings from the New Dark Age, a celebration of culture under the threat of the New Philistines'. This is the second exhibition in Spain by Langford, giving you a new chance to submerge yourse in this world of damned musical heroes and intelligent and caustic reflections on the contradictions of American society, rampant capitalism, the death penalty, fame, success and failure.
