What art have I seen? Everybody in the Place

Posted in Exhibitions by chrisfremantle on May 11, 2019

Jeremy Deller’s Everybody in the Place, an Incomplete History of Britain 1984-1992 at The Modern Institute

Busy for a sunny (taps aff) Saturday in Glasgow – lots of artists sitting in the dark being reminded of their youth (Ally Wallace, Rowena Comrie).

Interesting proposition that Social Media has replaced music as the mode of existence of young people…

But seriously, compelling argument for the role of late 80s music in the counter culture flowing from Europe to the US and back again. Continued relevance in the ongoing rise of the Right.
