Jeremy Deller: Joy in People - Hayward Gallery

Jeremy Deller, Art Exhibition
Jeremy Deller is, I think, one of the most interesting of contemporary British artists and I am looking forward to visiting Jeremy Deller: Joy in People at the Hayward Gallery. (This was not his choice of title, as he revealed in an interview on radio 4's Front Row (20 Feb), he proposed Animal, Vegetable, Pop Music.)
Treats in store include a 3D film of bats, a re-creation of Deller's teenage (and later) bedroom, a film of his restaging of the 1984 Battle of Orgreave between striking miners and the police, the remains of a bomb blasted car from Baghdad, a film about 1970s wrestling star Adrian Street, and free tea from a reconstructed Lancashire café! A Middle Class Hero is something to be!
Read a reviews by Adrian Searle and Laura Cumming.
