Celebrating a century of  modern British artists

It was the day after the American election and the day looked so bleak that HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths decided to go to the Jerwood Gallery and see something uplifting: Century: 100 Modern British Artists. It was not so much the British-ness of the exhibition, more the fact that artists had looked, considered, and created something new, interesting and sustainable. Lauris wanted to see something that had intelligence and talent; honesty in an uncertain world.
