You Say You Want a Revolution? Records and Rebels 1966-70 is the V&A’s major exhibition for autumn-winter 2016-17. Co-curator Victoria Broackes discusses how the exhibition explores the significance and impact of the late 1960s through the era-defining music, performances, fashion, film, design and political activism, and raises the questions: what did the optimistic idealism of the period do for us and where are we now?
Victoria Broackes is Senior Curator for the V&A Department of Theatre & Performance, and Head of Festival for the London Design Festival at the V&A. In 2013 she co-curated David Bowie is, the fastest selling exhibition in the V&A’s history. For autumn 2016 she is co-curating the major V&A exhibition You Say You Want a Revolution?, an interactive, music led exhibition about the ongoing impact of the social and cultural youth revolutions of the late Sixties. Victoria has developed several other popular music displays for the V&A, from Kylie: The Exhibition (2007) to The Story of the Supremes (2008) and The House of Annie Lennox (2011).
