Jane Palm-Gold celebrates the venues and spaces that incubated London’s counterculture – and their slow death at the hands of gentrification.
Regeneration City Blues launches in Seven Dials on 13 August and runs until 31 August.
Exploring the subcultures of post-Swinging 60s London right up until the urban regeneration driven by multinational development corporations, this pop-up will celebrate late 20th-century London through its music and art.
The exhibition, curated by Jane Palm-Gold celebrates the venues and spaces that incubated The Rolling Stones, David Bowie and The Sex Pistols – and which are now being replaced by world-spanning corporations and chain stores.
Jane Palm-Gold studied at the Royal College of Art and her work has featured on BBC Radio London’s Robert Elms Show, MTV Networks, The Chart Show (ITV), NHK TV Japan, the Guardian, Independent, New Scientist and Current Archaeology. Her exhibition with Museum of London Archaeology, ‘London’s Underworld Unearthed: The Secret Life of the Rookery’ received much critical and public acclaim in 2011.
Dates: 13-31 August, 10am to 6pm
Address: 55 Neal Street, Seven Dials, London, WC2H 9PJ
