Brand New Retro
Brian McMahon, the creator and curator of the award winning website brandnewretro.ie and the cult 2015 book, ‘Brand New Retro’ brings his exhibition to axis this June. See how Irish people lived and loved from the optimistic days of the 1960s through to the bleaker 1980s.
‘Brand New Retro’ is an online archive of content digitised from Brian’s collection of lost Irish magazines dating from the pre-internet age. It features thousands of rare images, adverts and articles on Irish youth culture, encompassing music, fashion, TV, sport, design and advertising since the 1950s.
