Simon Evans: Genius 2.0

20:20, 01 - 26 Aug

Last year, Simon Evans earned rave reviews for Genius, his howl of despair at our declining national appetite for intelligent conversation, let alone public figures of exceptional ability. The Guinness Book of World Records is a glossy scandal sheet, we look to cartoon fish and John Lewis ads for moral guidance, and the notion of a Western civilisation worth saving in the first place is, to say the very least, moot. This year, he brings the cure... 'The show is called Genius. It comes very close' ***** (Kate Copstick, Scotsman). 'Magnificently pessimistic' **** (List).
