Glam! The Performance of Style is the first critical appraisal of the art and visual culture of the early 1970s’ glam era to take the form of an exhibition. Embracing high and low culture, glam was a pop narrative and sensibility which emerged at this time, deploying artifice and irony whilst playing with identity and gender definitions. Moving beyond nostalgia, the show uses glam as a prism through which to view and refract artistic developments in Europe and North America. It brings together over one hundred works by artists including Richard Hamilton, Sigmar Polke and Cindy Sherman, re-imagining art and performance in the 1970s to reveal the migration of fine art ideas into the front edge of popular culture.
