The museum’s flagship show this summer is another one of those pop culture wingdingers, Revolution: “You Say You Want A Revolution,” running from June 17th to October 8th 2017. The exhibition takes a look at the 1960s in all its various shapes and sounds from music, fashion film, design and activism: From swinging London to the Black Panthers and of course drugs and Woodstock.
The show consists of more than 350 items ranging from clothes, posters, albums, photographs and numerous archival documents. It comes equipped with high fidelity headphones so that museum goers can hear the different sounds of the 60s as they move from gallery to gallery. Originally created at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts is using it to celebrate Expo 67.
