Are Teenage Dreams So Hard to Beat?
6th March - 15th June 2018
Travelling Gallery's Spring 2018 exhibition, in partnership with the Museum of Childhood, Edinburgh, will explore, for better or worse, our formative years, as contemporary artists exhibit their work alongside teenage archives from yesteryears. In the age of the internet and Generation Z we will consider the contrasts of adolescence past and present as comparatively tame and nostalgic teenage magazines will be exhibited next to the never-ending clickbait of internet culture. Our teenage dreams will be suspended as the exhibition investigates our prolonged adolescence and why 'teenage' no longer just refers to the period between the ages of 12 and 20?
The exhibition will include work by contemporary artists Arpita Shah, Alice Theobold and Holly White alongside archive material from Museum of Childhood, Edinburgh.
