Mid-Century Modern: Art & Design from Conran to Quant presents the design, fashion, and art of a group of radical young architects, designers, photographers, and artists who redefined the concept of youth and the established order of post-war Britain.

At the forefront of this group of young revolutionaries were Mary Quant, Terence Conran, and Bernard and Laura Ashley, who were influenced by the teachings of Eduardo Paolozzi and the Independent Group. Explore the furniture, fashion, textiles, lighting, ceramics, and printed material that defined Mid-Century Modern in an exhibition that delves into not only the style, but the socioeconomic importance of this transformative period.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Mid-Century Modern Art and Design From Conran to Quant are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
