Street Fighting Man. 50 Years of Youth Protest

28th April – 4th June 2011

The exhibition demonstrates the power of rock and roll as a focus for rebellion, and the status of rock singers as mouthpieces for radicalism.  To compliment this, the exhibition also traces a wider sociological context of street protests that include CND marches, civil unrest in Ireland, inner city riots, the Poll tax riots. The exhibition coincides with a new wave of national demonstrations involving both Union activism and student protest, against Government economic policy, scheduled for 26 March 2011.
