Work, Rest & Play: British Photography From the 1960s to Today
Editor's Description
The UK - China Year of Cultural Exchange rumbles on, with this promising looking exhibition at Minsheng Art Museum. Work, Rest and Play: British Photography from the 1960s to Today is curated by the pretty awesome Photographers’ Gallery in London. Comprising over 400 images by 38 photographers, the show charts the changing face of British culture over the last 50 years. Spanning landscape, fashion, portraiture, photojournalism and documentary, themes include multiculturalism, consumerism, political protest, post-industrialisation, traditions and the class system. Starting from Cecil Beaton and Terence Donavon in the '60s; Sirkka-Liisa Konttinen and Shirley Baker's portraits of '70s working-class families; Martin Parr's visual satire of the 1980s; and Clare Strand's take on '90s Britpop; the chronology winds up with the 21st century's financial crisis, wars on terrorism and social media revolution of the 21st century. There's also video and animation, and an ongoing lecture series alongside the exhibition.
