Controversial art exhibition moved from mezzanine level

An exhibition of artwork deemed too controversial for public view has been moved from a gallery on the  mezzanine flooring  mezzanine flooring level down to a basement room.

The exhibition, which is entitled ‘The 27 Club’, was staged at The Riverfront gallery in Newport, South Wales. It features celebrities who died at the age of 27 and was produced by Lauren Jones of the University of Wales.

The exhibition comprises video footage of people wearing masks of musicians like Kurt Cobain, Amy Winehouse, Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix, and was devised to celebrate the last year of the fine art programme which has been run by the university for 112 years.

The decision to move the exhibition was taken after a number of complaints from both staff and the viewing public who felt that some of the language used in the film was inappropriate, particularly as the mezzanine flooring level is a main walkway through the gallery and the exhibits were in full view of children passing through to other parts of the gallery.

A warning notice has been put on the door of the basement area, stating that some of the language and exhibits are quite shocking, giving a brief outline of the more explicit pieces of art on show.

Final year Fine Art student Miss Jones said that she was delighted that The Riverfront had granted her exhibition space and was not upset by the move from the mezzanine floor down to the cellar.
