POSTPONED Mid-Century Modern: Director Talk

This event has been postponed. If you purchased a ticket to this event our team will be in touch with you via email. We will post updates on our website and social media channels.

Join Dovecot Director Celia Joicey to hear the fascinating story of the lifestyle revolution of post-war Britain and the key figures who shaped it.

Spanning the period from 1952 to 1977 Mid-Century Modern: Art & Design from Conran to Quant presents furniture, fashion, textiles, lighting, and ceramics in an exhibition that delves into not only the style, but also the socioeconomic importance of this transformative period on everyday life. In this illustrated talk, learn about the radical young architects and designers including Terence Conran, Mary Quant, and Bernard and Laura Ashley, who defined the enduring style of this era.

Tickets £12 (+booking fee) include entry to exhibition on day of the event.

Every ticket sold supports the work of The Dovecot Foundation to advance visual art, craft and design in all its forms.
