Short-lived overwhelmingly muggy days that are followed by a chilling evening breeze, under-dressed Londoners forking out for over-priced ice-cream, beer gardens brimming with sun kissed revellers and some absolutely incredible exhibitions– these are a few things we associate with summer in the City. What we probably didn’t expect was two of the most anticipated shows of this season were going to be funny, raunchy and downright rude. The first of these is of course the Tate Modern’s Rude Britannia: British Comic Art, which has incorporated everything from the satirical drawings of Punch to the modern day offensive publication that is Viz Magazine and distributed them amongst the comedic efforts of Masters such as Hogarth and Reynolds. Where the exhibition stumbles is that the socio-political commentary amid the more recent pieces lacks the wit and timelessness of the generations they are compared to - granted Angus Fairhurst’s work seems to stand as an exception to this. Quite frankly what it was missing is the contents of an exhibition happening way across town at the Maverik Showroom in Shoreditch. Since Modern Toss’s inception in the form of Loaded Magazine’s cartoon strip ‘Office Pest’ creators Mick Bunnage and Jon Links have expanded their foul-mouthed cast of angry characters that include ‘Mr.Tourette. Master Signwriter’ who writes offensive French signs that have little to do with the instructions he has been given, and ‘Alan’ the sociopathic scribble who invariably leaves destruction in his wake. Focusing on contemporary themes the exhibition includes such titles such as ‘Buy More Shit Or We’re All Fucked’ and the ‘Retail Village of the Damned’, Modern Toss continues that great comic tradition of social satire in a consumerist, capitalist state and whether intentionally ironic or not, each piece has its price listed clearly below. Bunnage and Links invite us to witness an incredible range of hilarious ‘shit-naks’ from pencil drawings, interactive peep shows and prints. The shows highlights comprise of various pieces from their ‘Cheese&Wine’ series that highlight the boredom of high society small talk, ‘The Periodic Table of Swearing’ and the series of ‘Space Arguments’ all of which result in a room full of sniggering art enthusiasts.
