Liverpool art Show Presents the 70s in a new Light
Date Posted: 07/02/13
A new art show in Liverpool could make for an interesting day out for those on short breaks in the city, particularly of you have fond memories of the 1970s.
Glam!, hosted by Tate Liverpool, opened to the public today (Thursday, February 7th) and aims to cast a new light on a decade largely known for the three-day week, power cuts and fashion trends best forgotten.
The exhibition includes more than 100 works from the 70s by artists including Richard Hamilton, David Hockney and Cindy Sherman, designed to explore the "genealogy of glam".
"There are so many punk shows and so many 60s shows," curator Darren Pih told the Guardian.
"This is the first to try and articulate what was going on in the early 70s. It is assumed to be a vacuum but actually it was a really interesting time, particularly in terms of things like identity politics, gay lib and feminism."
The exhibition runs until May 12th, with tickets costing £8.
