Overview

Chris Mousdale presents a selection of iconic covers from the rock era that utilise the photographic portrait as a totemic signal to define style, hierarchy, and sexual status within the tightly wound, often contradictory, environment of artistic expression and commercial imperative that existed in the 20th century music industry.

Chris is an illustrator and graphic designer.

Sunday 24 February - 3pm
Auditorium - free entry
