Viewing online only (this exhibition currently unavailable).

Edinburgh’s Dovecot Studios is to show Mid-Century Modern: Art & Design from Conran to Quant presenting 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.

Among the 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. Includes 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 socio-economic importance of this transformative period.
