Exhibition: Scenes

Exhibition: Scenes

16 September 2022

We are excited to share that a new exhibition organised by the Falkirk Council Archives will be on display from 24 September at Callendar House!

The exhibition will feature a collection of items, photographs, and archive material reconfigured to illustrate the twin festivals held in the area in 1972. Scenes use the story of these events to bring the more remarkable story of the region’s contribution and love of music. From the reporting and raving in reviews and zines to international idolization, Scenes air in public the area’s voice to ask what these events mean to us now and then while immersing us in the visual language of 1970s pop.

By working through the archive collection, reconfiguring it to contrast how information was passed then and how we consume this slice of culture today in various apps and browser windows.

Scenes have on display material from the gigs, photographs, Fanzine publications, guest commentaries and the psychogeography of Grangemouth from The Cocteau Twin’s Robin Guthrie.

The exhibition is free. For more information, click here.
