'Collective Disturbance' honours that it is both a remarkable yet alarming time to live on this planet. It presents topics that both disturb and celebrate, and translates our progress whilst illuminating our failures.

Through sculpture, painting, drawing, site-specific installations and light art, contemporary artists tackle topics affecting our collective psyche, from the new masculinity, feminism and gender to climate change, political unrest, late capitalism and social divide. The exhibition's concept is partly inspired by 'Meaning and Melancholia: Life in the Age of Bewilderment' by Christopher Bollas.

‘Collective Disturbance’ is a group show curated by Margate-based artist, Ruth Fox, featuring the work of contemporary artists from Margate and London.
