Known for their street culture exhibitions – which have celebrated subcultures of Raves and Skinheads, Hip Hop and Taboo club scenes – PYMCA (the acclaimed youth culture archive) are now bringing Unordinary People to the Royal Albert Hall.
Featuring an eclectic selection of rare and exclusive photographs, video footage and excerpts that highlight the history, lifestyles, fashions, hairstyles, music and subcultures of British youth culture from the 1960s to today, this exhibition captures the real essence of what it is to be young at heart.
Highlighting defining moments in British history, taken from those at the forefronts of the movements, go along and celebrate the self-expression, idealism, frustrations, resilience and creative vitality of youth!
And if you’re really interested in the youth of Britain past and present, PYMCA will be holding a talk with guest speaker Ted Polhemus; anthropologist, photographer and author of some of the world’s most influential style tribe books on April 23rd. Click here to get your tickets.
