Everything Was Moving is a major photography show exploring the changing world of the 60s and 70s through the lenses of twelve renowned international photographers.
The exhibition features a range of compelling photography taken during a pertinent time in history, when many countries around the world were experiencing a social and political transformation. From the Cultural Revolution to the Cold War; from America’s colonialist misadventure in Vietnam to the indelible values of the civil rights movement; this was the defining period of the modern age.
It also coincided with a golden age in photography and the moment when the medium flowered as a modern art form. Less concerned to change the world, or to merely describe it, a new generation of photographers were driven to understand that world, as well as their place within it.
Bringing together over 400 works, many shown in the UK for the first time, Everything Was Moving: Photography from the 60s and 70s presents some of the most inspiring voices in 20th century photography, in order to reflect on the world then – and now.
Featuring Larry Burrows, Ernest Cole, Bruce Davidson, William Eggleston, David Goldblatt, Graciela Iturbide, Boris Mikhailov, Sigmar Polke, Raghubir Singh, Malick Sidibé, Shomei Tomatsu, and Li Zhensheng.
