Ingram Pinn: Political Cartoons for the Financial Times
15 March - 8 April 2017
With Brexit throwing the UK political establishment into turmoil and the election of Donald Trump turning US policy on its head, politics certainly became less predictable in 2016. All this of course provided endless fruit for political cartoonist Ingram Pinn to pick at, with each day giving rise to one absurdity after another.
Since 1987 Pinn has worked as an illustrator and political cartoonist for the Financial Times, producing his own comment each weekend and illustrating other articles during the week. This major solo exhibition of his recent work showcases a fresh and provocative selection of illustrations drawing upon key moments from 2016’s turbulent political landscape.
