Gary’s latest project is a compilation album entitled ‘Gary Crowley’s Lost 80s’
Lost 80s presents 63 tracks that are a welcome alternative to the ‘fluffy manufactured pop’ that ruled the airwaves in the U.K. and USA through the 1980S.

Expertly complied across a 4 CD Box Set and 3 ‘themed’ LPs, veer from ‘Jingly Jangly’ indie-pop, to the edge of New Romantic, and a wide range of under the radar, genre-defining dance floor grooves.

Many of these tracks are rare and hard to find, having not appeared on CDs or LPs since their original 80s release.

You will have the opportunity to buy a signed copy of the album and meet the curator on the night.

30 January - 2 June 2019

From the early innovations of Anna Atkins and Queen Alexandra, through to Dorothy Bohm’s depiction of 1960s London and the self-portraiture of Sarah Lucas in the 2000s, the exhibition will for the first time present an in depth historical survey showcasing the achievements of female photographers working in Britain.

Professor Jean Wainwright (University for the Creative Arts) has compiled new and archival interviews, including those from a selection of exhibiting artists. The interviews will be installed as sound compilations, recorded as conversations directly referring to the artists' photographs on display.

An event will be hosted by The Lightbox in collaboration with Fast Forward Women in Photography at University for the Creative Arts, Farnham. This exhibition is part of an ongoing international campaign to bring pioneering women photographers to a wider audience and expose the discrimination of working in a male dominated world.

This exhibition is supported by a Jonathan Ruffer Curatorial Research Grant from Art Fund.

£5.00 Day Pass or £7.50 Annual Pass | Under 18s Free
