Waterford's Countercultures 1979-1996 Upcoming Exhibition

17 - 19th November 2017

This exhibition will take place at Goma Modern Art Gallery, Lombard Street Waterford. Running from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. it will feature numerous images, soundtracks, and associated memorabilia relating to the origins and legacy of movements and scenes such as bikers, Mods, Ska, Punk, Indie and underground dance.

Our exhibits will include quotes from those who were founding figures in the aforementioned groups, along with commentaries that will detail the significance of the items displayed. This combination of imagery and text will offer rare and invaluable insights into Waterford's countercultural heritage.

Given that Waterford acquired a nationwide reputation for being both innovative and resilient in its staging of countercultural events, it is hoped that enthusiasts for alternative cultures from cities such as Dublin and Cork who attended events in Waterford between 1979 and 1996 will be eager to view our exhibition.

We are also eager to hear from those who would be willing to assist us in our future research endeavours.
