Deadpan presented several newly commissioned works alongside key pieces borrowed from collections, as well as artwork previously unseen in the UK

Deadpan examined an art world at the point of oversaturation by questioning strategies used by artists to make new work. Considering mimicry and the referential alongside the blatancy of homage, the exhibition presented a pastiched viewpoint of art, providing a glimpse into the dirty world of satire within contemporary art.

Running parallel to the exhibition, a curator’s talk was held for Long Night, 2010.
