London Calling: 1979

London Calling: 1979
 Starts at 6:30 pm

Join curator Beatrice Behlen for a panel discussion exploring what it was like to live and be creative in London in 1979.

We will examine the social and political landscape of the late 1970s, the role of art schools, the influence of squatting and the bands, clubs, people and publications that made up London’s music scene, and the influence and experience of some of the women who were part of it all.

Panellists include:

Caroline Coon

London-born artist and writer Caroline is and has been active in several cultural movements instigating social change: the hippie underground, punk rock and feminism.

Alex Michon

Alex is an artist, a writer and co-director of the Transition Gallery in Hackney. She worked with The Clash between 1977-1983, designing several ranges of clothing for the band.

Gina Birch

Gina was inspired by a live performance of The Slits to form experimental post-punk band The Raincoats with Ana da Silva in 1977. She continues to make music, as well as art and films.

The talk will be followed by an opportunity to see The Clash: London Calling display.

Cost: £15
