The Performance of Style

Glam emerged in the early 1970s and remains one of the most instantly recognisable but critically derided stylistic phenomena of the twentieth century art and cultural history.  Known mostly through the music of the era, the style can also be traced to art forms through it’s acquaintance with theatrics, artifice, mythologism and androgyny.
Leading writers use Glam as a prism to examine the art, music and fashion of the time, shedding new light on the extravagance of this period. This catalogue provides an in-depth examination of art and performance, revealing the migration of fine art ideas into the front line of popular culture.
