Half term gallery visits

No Such Thing As Society

10 May – 13 July
Tullie House Museum and Art Gallery, Carlisle

No Such Thing as Society focuses on photography produced in Britain during the period 1967 – 1987, an era when British society and culture was in a state of ferment and transition. In the early 1970s, the Arts Council of England began to commission photographers to document these changing times in black and white, while the British Council took the adventurous decision to collect the new colour photography of the social scene at the beginning of the 1980s. This exhibition – a unique collaboration between the Arts Council and the British Council – draws upon both collections to give a radically new picture of two turbulent decades.
