Sixties – A Worldwide Happening
This wide-ranging exhibition offers a global view of the 1960s, an era when globalisation as we know it first appeared. By examining several themes characteristic of the era, the exhibition shows how changes worldwide were manifested in and reflected by graphic design, fashion, music, architecture, photography and media. It also looks at the subsequent impact this period had on global culture and the legacy it continues to have today.
Arranged around several themes characteristic of the era, the exhibition shows how changes worldwide were expressed in graphic design, fashion, music, architecture and photography. Admire the legendary clothes of Jimi Hendrix, Yves Saint Laurent and Paco Rabanne. And have a look at work by the world-famous photographers Richard Avedon, James Barnor and Malick Sidibé.
Donovan’s 1967 shot of Jimi Hendrix (proving very popular this Autumn) will feature in this group show. The Archive worked with the Tropenmuseum to produce an exhibition print for this display.
