Tomorrow Never Knows

Pictured: Evelyne Axell ‘Cheese’
In this exhibition, The Artist Room examines how all these different forms of artistic expression formed a melting pot that lead to powerful collaboration, sexual exploration and political action.

The 1960s were arguably the most exciting and dynamic decade in post war British culture, an age where the structure of society was changing. The creativity of the period has left a lasting effect on society and many artists working today.

The visual arts was an integral part to this social change in the sixties, and Tomorrow Never Knows gives an expansive look at the groundbreaking new forms of art developed during that period.

Throughout the Western art history, women were often viewed through male eyes, whether as subjects or objects. With the rise of the Feminist Art Movement in the 1960s, women artists started re-defining themselves and re-narrating the history.

The work of female Pop artists resembled that of their male counterparts, oscillating in style between Abstract Expressionism and Minimalism, commodity cult and capitalist critique.

Neglected for decades, the work of female Pop artists is now gaining better understanding and recognition for their contributions and challenges to the movement. These pioneers were focused on shifting both the objectifying male gaze and the objectified female gaze. Working in the Pop Art aesthetics, their works were intricately linked to the rise of feminist art that explored women’s societal roles as well as their sexuality.

Tomorrow Never Knows brings together works by a wide spectrum of artists who were at the forefront of selection of cataclysmic artistic movements of the time, pushing boundaries never dared to be pushed before.

The foundations for the visual mythology of ‘Swinging London’ was first formulated by the artists and photographers of the time who were offering their own brand of modernity.

The exhibition is a partial survey of  these artists and their various chosen outlets in avant-garde art and culture between 1959 and 1969.

Considering the expressive movement to stand for the high art, artists re-enforced the idea of the low-brow art by using images from the mass culture. Also rebelling against Abstract Expressionism paintings, various post-painterly abstraction artists removed the drama, by erasing any trace of the artist’s identity. Taking away the brushstrokes, the painters emphasized the flat surfaces, color, and hard-edge abstraction.
