Hippie Modernism: The Struggle for Utopia

Hippie Modernism: The Struggle for Utopia examines the art, architecture, and design of the counterculture of the 1960s and early 1970s, chronicling one of the most fertile periods of recent cultural history. A time of great upheaval, this period witnessed a variety of radical experiments that challenged societal and professional expectations, overturned traditional hierarchies, explored new media, materials, and technologies, and formed alternative communities and new ways of living and working together.

The exhibition features a variety of art forms and artifacts, including experimental furniture and alternative living structures; immersive environments and media installations; alternative magazines, experimental books, and printed ephemera; and archival films.

Curator: Andrew Blauvelt


Hippie Modernism: The Struggle for Utopia is organized by the Walker Art Center.
