  • ONLINE Mid-Century Modern Highlights Tour

Enjoy an online guided tour of Mid-Century Modern: Art & Design From Conran to Quant with a member of the Dovecot team.

This pre-recorded tour is a great opportunity to see the whole exhibition from the comfort of your own home. Mid-Century Modern: Art & Design From Conran to Quant spans the fashion, textiles, furniture, lighting, homewares and ceramics created by a group of radical young creatives in Britain from the 1950s to the 1970s. After the destruction of World War Two, a new generation set about redefining modern life. The exhibition tour introduces the work of key artists, designers, photographers and intellectuals who helped to deliver the lifestyle revolution including Mary Quant, Terence Conran, Bernard and Laura Ashley, Nigel Henderson and Eduardo Paolozzi.

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

Exhibition organised by Fashion and Textile Museum, London.
