Known across the globe for targeting artworks and cultural events with non-violent direct action, Just Stop Oil supporters have continued to engage with contemporary artists, academics and activists.
Artists and collectors, such as Gavin Turk, Rut Blees Luxemburg, Jamie Reid, William Mackinnon, Peter Kennard, Boy George and more will showcase their works in support of Just Stop Oil’s demand: that the British government immediately halts all new fossil fuel licensing and consents.
Standing with them are FILET space, The Koppel Project, The Auction Collective, and the Vivienne Foundation.
This is where we find ourselves, living at a crisis point that will birth a new age. This is an intervention. And this is just the beginning.
Avenging Angel is Jamie Reid’s appropriation of Titian’s Bacchus, with added phallus and molotov cocktail, taking revenge on the all encompassing threat of Global Capitalism.
