Simon & Tom Bloor: Something to do and Somewhere to do it

Simon & Tom Bloor: Something to do and Somewhere to do it
Library Shelf Location 18.BLOO
Publication Date 2010

Specially commissioned to accompany the exhibition Hit and Miss at Modern Art Oxford by artists Simon and Tom Bloor, and to mark the Big Draw campaign.

Taking the form of a child’s drawing book, it characteristically brings together the artists’ interest in the interplay between text and image, graphic composition and the history of poster design. Evoking a nostalgia associated with the public information campaigns of the 1970s and 1980s, the Bloors’ open-ended questions and propositions strike a balance between instruction and play, humour and puzzlement, whilst at the same time framing the potential of how we might envision a new world, new structures and new realities through the child’s imagination.
