They Live - An Exhibition Celebrating John Carpenter's Cult Film

Posted by Ali Johnson on

An Exhibition celebrating John Carpenter's cult film with Craig Oldham and Rough Trade Books. Please note the exhibition ran from Monday 21st October - Friday 22nd November 2019 and has now closed.
They Live (1988) is a science-fiction action film, which belies many of the genres in which it’s cast. Dismissed by critics upon release, the film has gone on to claim a cult following and earned a reputation for its political satire, social commentary, philosophical and technological forecasting, and visual aesthetics.

Craig Oldham’s new book 'They Live: A Visual and Cultural Awakening' published by Rough Trade Books explores the film’s lasting influence and impact through a series of essays and contributions from leading cultural figures (including a foreword by John Carpenter and articles by Shepard Fairey and John Grant).
