“Please note: This course will make use of visual imagery which some may find offensive.”

There’s a reason to go if any.

Thanks to the publishers of the British leftfield arts magazine Nude, Cornerhouse is hosting this new 6 week course that will explore artistic notions of counterculture with reference to the visual legacy of some of the most quietly influential subcultures and underground youth movements since the early 1960s.

Book now to avoid disappointment and start the new year finding out about the art of the Pin-Up, Surf and Kustom Culture, Psychedelia,  underground Comix, the Tiki revival, punk graphics, lowbrow art, Pop Surrealism, designer toys and indie crafting, touching upon the work of Ed Roth, Robert Williams, Shag, Coop, Kozik, Jamie Reid and James Cauty .
