Red White And Blue: Pop/Punk/Politics/Place
Red, White and Blue explores the intertwining themes of pop, punk, politics and place at the end of 2012. Critically positioned in the context of the Jubilee and Olympic year, the exhibition also looks back to corresponding historical moments: the 1951 Festival of Britain, the birth of punk and the Silver Jubilee. The show looks again at re-emerging themes of austerity, legacy, and national identity that have resonated across the last half-century both in the UK and internationally and the influences of pop and political graphics on contemporary art.
Red, White and Blue will include works by Peter Blake, Barney Bubbles, Pavel Buchler, Nicky Carvell, Neil Clements, Terence Cuneo, Richard Evans, Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard, Jaime Gili, Derek Jarman, Laibach, Antonio Manuel, Cildo Meireles, Humphrey Ocean, Pil & Galia Kollectiv, Simon Periton, Mick Jones Rock & Roll Public Library, Jon Savage, Syd Shelton, Jon Smith, Richard Smith, Daniel Sturgis, Steve Thomas, Paul Tickell, Mark Titchner, Trio/Fabrika, Kirsten Weiner.
