PYMCA Showcase at Lomography Gallery Soho

Hippies outside UFO, Psychedelic club, London, 1968 – Chris Morris

Sub-cultures of Carnaby Exhibition.

PYMCA has teamed up with Lomography for the Jubilee celebrations to exhibit some classic imagery from London in the 1960s and 70s. Centred around Soho and Carnaby St, the exhibition showcases Mods and Psychedelics at the height of the swinging sixties and the lasting influence they have had on the area which still draws people to the heart of the west end. This exhibition draws on the rich history of the Carnaby area, offering a glimpse into the diversity of the people, their fashions and attitudes.

The exhibition is open now and runs until June 7th.


On the last day there will be a special event from 6pm with an in-store discussion from Ted Polhemus. For more than thirty years Ted has explored and celebrated the extraordinary ways that popular culture opens a window onto a broader understanding of the world we live in. Lomography Soho is based right on the very street that was the geographic center point of Swinging London. Ted will be there to give a talk around this theme and also on the 35mm camera as an icon for this time.

Join us on 7 June as we celebrate the last day of the Sub-Cultures of Carnaby exhibition. The evening will start at 6pm

Following this we invite you to enjoy a drink and soak up the exhibition in its final day.

To finish the evening ‘China Rats’ will be performing in store. They are a four piece rock ‘n’ roll band from Leeds, inspired by a love of punk’s riotous guitars, 50’s pop and classic British guitar bands. PERFECT!!
