V&A Postmodernism

A sunny winter walk through Hyde Park ended with a visit to the V & A Museum to see Postmodernism: Style and Subversion 1970–1990, which ended this weekend. The exhibition was rather busy as you might expect with people like me trying to see the show before it closed. The slightly cramped gallery housed many items of postmodern form, including clothing, furniture, jewellery and record sleeve art work. I expect this exhibition with its broad range of examples has lead the way for future Postmodern exhibitions, perhaps to curate more in-depth subject specialised shows. I would love to see a graphic and textiles based show, but then that's for my own indulgent reasons.

My highlight piece of the exhibition was a necklace by Michele de Lucchi for Cleto Munari.

Stunning graphics for the exhibition invitations were created by London design agency Irish Butcher and were printed by Generation Press.

If you are interested in reading further about the exhibition Zoot Magazine features a great detailed article by Anna Battista.
