Penny Slinger - Out of the Shadows is the incredible, untold story of the British artist Penny Slinger and the traumatic events that led to the creation of her masterpiece, the 1977 photo-romance, ‘An Exorcism’.

Coming-of-age against a back-drop of post-war austerity and the explosion of colour that characterized the 1960s counter-culture in London, Penny Slinger embraced her generation’s quest for personal freedom and sexual liberation and channelled these desires into her ground-breaking collages and sculptures. Penny Slinger: Out of the Shadows tells the story of how her seminal piece of art came to be, from the traumatic events that inspired it, to the intense creativity that created it, to the fizzle in Slinger’s once-explosive career that kept her work largely out of the world of popular art.

Followed by a Q&A with Penny Slinger.
