As part of the Brighton Fringe festival, Modern Toss will be holding an exhibition at the Ink_d gallery. Modern Cloth promises to be a groundbreaking exhibition of innovative 'cloth works', including a bespoke tailored Swearing Jacket, some challenging tea towel designs and a selection of very collectible new prints.
Modern Toss began as a five part comic, which featured the work of artists and writers Jon link and Mick Bunnage. The early editions of this comic are now very collectible; especially the second issue which had what was alleged to be free royal hairstuck on the cover.
Their first TV series, broadcast on Channel 4 in 2006, was a mix of blunt-talking, animated characters with bizarre and surreal live action. Described as "badly drawn, utterly foul mouthed, mean spirited and misanthropic... also very, very funny" by The Independent on Sunday, the series won critical praise and was nominated for a Rose D'Or award in 2009. Their second series was snapped up and broadcast in the U.S in 2009.
They have had two previous exhibitions at Ink_d Gallery in Brighton, and last summer presented a musical evening of their animation, complete with live voice actors and orchestra, to celebrate Brighton Arts festival. A trimmed down version of the show was taken to the Latitude festival in summer 2010.
Modern Cloth opens on the day of the Royal Wedding and to mark the occasion Modern Toss will also be presenting a collection of last minute commemorative Royal nick-naks -a set of stamps, a one-off bone china mug and a professionally woven commemorative royal tea towel - so you cantreasure forever the memory of the young Windsor's nuptials. Help celebrate this emotional time for Kate, Wills, and the nation by popping down to Ink_d galleryfor what promises to be one of their best shows yet.
The exhibition will be on view from the 29th April until the 30th May and will be open to the public from Monday to Saturday 10am 6pm. Sundays 12pm 4pm
