Images of Protest @ Rich Mix / Saturday 7th January 2012

Open: 10am till close

@ Rich Mix

Mezzanine Gallery, 35-47 Bethnal Green Road,  London, E1 6LA

Entry: Free entry

www.richmix.org.uk / www.hangingout.org.uk 

Full Spectrum Productions presents the Hanging Out Project, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, in collaboration with the V&A, Imperial War Museum and Rich Mix.

‘Images of Protest’ focuses on protest posters and poster art of 50’s, 60’s and early 70’s Britain and how this art form has both influenced and been influenced by the myriad aspects of youth culture. The work on display charts the immense change that occurred in popular and social culture in these decades and covers subjects such as Nuclear Disarmament, Racial Equality and Equal Rights.

The exhibition looks at material from photographers, artists & designers and self-organized groups such as The See Red Woman’s poster group, Atelier Populaire, Paul Peter Piech, Ian McLaren and Neil Kenlock – the official photographer for the Black Panthers, as well as including images of Muhammad Ali’s resistance to the Vietnam War.

Included is a selection of contemporary posters created by young people involved with the Hanging Out project. Given access to archives of anti-war protest images at the V&A the group were inspired to generate their own posters revealing the extent to which the protest voice and aesthetic can still be heard and is relevant today.

Postmodernism: Style & Subversion Exhibition @ V&A Museum / Friday 6th January 2012

TIME AND PLACE:

Entry: 10:00 – 22:00

@ V&A Museum

Exhibition Space One
Cromwell Road, London, SW7 2RL

Admission: Adult £11

Postmodernism: Style and Subversion 1970-1990 Exhibition until Sunday 15th January 2012

This is the first in-depth survey of art, design and architecture of the 1970s and 1980s, examining one of the most controversial phenomena in recent art and design history: postmodernism. It shows how postmodernism evolved from a provocative architectural movement in the early 1970s and rapidly went on to influence all areas of popular culture including design, art, music, film, performance and fashion. By the 1980s consumerism and excess were the trademarks of the postmodern.

The exhibition explores the radical ideas that challenged Modernism; overthrowing purity and simplicity in favour of exuberant colour, bold patterns, artificial looking surfaces, historical quotation, parody and wit and above all, a newfound freedom in design. See over 250 objects across all areas of art and design and revisit a time when style was not just a ‘look’ but became an attitude.
