Glam! The Performance of Style
It was amazing!
It covers the years 1971 - 1975 through the art, music, fashion and popular culture of the time. It really was a trip down memory lane for my SIL and I as we wandered through the fantastic displays and exhibits. Couldn't take photos, so I've put together a few 70s bits and pieces myself.
We remembered many of the album covers and posters on display and got all nostalgic about the fashions and some of the posters of pop stars of the time - particularly Marc Bolan - wasn't he so handsome?!! There's lots of more "arty" stuff as well which is actually quite interesting. For me, though, 70s Glam means Biba - those fashions were just gorgeous! Check out my post about Biba.
The main reason for the visit, though, was that my little booklet from the Jackie magazine - Your Personality Guide - actually appears in the exhibition! Yes, I was asked if I would lend it to the Tate! How cool is that?!! You can read my post about Jackie here.
If you live near Liverpool, or are visiting soon, and love the music, fashion and art of the early 70s then you really should go and see this exhibition. It is on till 12 May and well worth a visit.
