Design in Revolution: A 1960s Odyssey in the Collab Gallery, first floor, Perelman Building at the Philadelphia Art Museum.The art of counterculture: From Pop Art and psychedelia to the civil rights and anti-war movements, the 1960s was a decade of liberation—and of great loss. See how designers, artists, and architects responded to the tumultuous period that still looms large in the American imagination. Highlights include the Museum’s surprising collection of vintage rock ‘n’ roll posters and a series of powerful images of Martin Luther King Jr. Explore 1960s Design Spanning from Pop Art to psychedelic experimentations, the diverse works in this exhibition highlight the sprawling, yet interconnected, nature of art and design during the 1960s. Then the Counterculture: As politics and the fight against the establishment took to the streets, a youth movement emerged, seeking to create a society free from discrimination. The rise of this counterculture formed the basis for new creative experimentation in art, design, and music. Check out the spotify Playlist by Pierre Robert (A Spotify account is required to access this playlist.) Music, art, and design were deeply intertwined during the 1960s. In this playlist compiled by Pierre Robert of 93.3 WMMR, rock out to songs by Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, the Beatles, and other iconic acts that helped define the era. philamuseum.org
