A Material World: Photographs of the 1980s
William King Museum of Art
“Cause we are living in a material world, and I am a material girl.” Madonna, 1984
The 1980s were BIG. Remembered by many as a time of excess and extremes, this was not the case for all Americans. These photographs from the Richmond Times-Dispatch document a now legendary time in history. They also help us understand today’s culture, which is being shaped by 80s kids who are bringing back that decade’s values, worldviews, and attitudes.
A Material World: Photographs of the 1980s is organized by the Virginia Museum of History & Culture.
Public Reception: February 7, 2019 from 6 - 8 p.m.
Exhibition Dates: February 7 - April 20, 2019
This event is free and open to the public. For more information call (276) 628-5005 ext. 107 to speak with Sarah Stanley, Curator at WKMA.
