Next stop on the tour was a look at the workshops. Among other projects, they cope with all of the packing of objects that come in or go out of the museum, as well as building the exhibitions themselves. While looking around we got a rare treat and were shown an exhibition in it’s infancy. ‘Post-Modernism’ is a display of late 1970’s – 1990’s pop-culture… ( just my era!) The exhibition is designed to re-create the inside of a live music venue and had at the time we were shown round, a suit worn by Annie Lennox, ( who’ll have her own section as well..) and also costumes worn by the B-52’s, ( the band not the bomber…) and Devo.
