|Exhibition - 1973: Sorry, Out of Gas|
|Tuesday, 06 November 2007 19:00|
7 November 2007 to 20 April 2008
The exhibition examines the oil crisis of 1973 as a major precedent of contemporary concerns about energy resources and fossil fuel dependency. The 1973 shortage triggered research and development of renewable energy sources, improved technologies, and social experiments that were to have an enduring impact on the architectural and political fields. The global response to the crisis is presented through a juxtaposition of individualistic, counterculture North American approaches with the more structured collective responses of European communities. A diverse range of materials, including archival newspapers and television footage, architectural drawings, artefacts, and photography capture the political urgency and international scope of the energy crisis.
