An archive display revisiting the Whitechapel Gallery's 1951 exhibition coinciding with the Festival of Britain featuring the 'things that people make or are manufactured to their taste', which challenged established ideas about the cultural value attached to particular kinds of objects. The exhibition included Idris the talking lemon advertising lemon squash, lavishly decorated pub mirrors emblazoned with spirits and liqueurs presentation and explored topics including advertising, drinking, tattooing, toys, pets, festivities and souvenirs. This presentation includes some of the original exhibits, including the iconic 1950s fireplace in the shape of an Airedale dog and explores Barbara Jones' approach to curating popular art.
