For this episode we have a chat about our recent visit to the Laing Art Gallery to explore the new Art Deco by the Sea exhibition. This extensive show looks specifically at the Art Deco movement in art, advertising, architecture and clothing, specifically in relation to the rise of British seaside tourism in the late 1920s-1930s. Something that we love about this show is how the Laing has been able to incorporate elements of their own collection, to really include the North east into this narrative.
Exhibition runs until 27th February (admission charges apply)
This episode is from 9th November 2020.
