This autumn will be Modern Panic's 10th anniversary. Over the last decade we have spearheaded London's most provocative, controversal and surreal art exhibition and featured over 600 artists from around the world.

Modern Panic has exhibited works from established artists such as H.R. Giger, Roger Ballen, Ralph Steadman, Charles Bronson, Franko B, Iris Schieferstein, Lucy Sparrow, Jimmy Cauty (KLF), Carrie Reichardt, Alejandro Jodorowsky, Roland Topor, Paul Toupet, Dan Hillier, Dave McKean and provided a platform to support countless of new talents.

We are now accepting submissions for artists to feature in our next exhibition.
Applications will be accepted from all styles and forms of art (including live art / performance) from artists working in any medium, from any location in the world.


The Modern Panic exhibitions are inspired by the work of the original Panic Movement, which was comprised of artists Alejandro Jodorowsky, Fernando Arrabal and Roland Topor, who created provocative live arts events in France during 1960s. The works intended aim was to slice through the bourgeois art world with the aim to be a catalyst towards liberation of thought within the viewer. Modern Panic follows in the footsteps of this movement and exhibits the new wave of panic artists.


Following on from our previous exhibitions, we are looking for work that evokes one or more of the following areas:

Panic / Provocation / Controversy / Surrealism / Outsider Art / Grotesque / Macabre
Playful/Trickster / Existential / Inner Beauty / Confrontational / Disarming / Subverting / Protest
Political / Satire / Modern Society / Freedom of Speech / Boundary breaking / Emotionally Powerful
Look at our previous exhibitions for examples.
