The next exhibition at The Museum of Club Culture is from the archive of american artist Michael Woody. 'The Over The Hill Gang' starts 4th August.
An exhibition of photographs from the 1970s of a self-described American “outlaw” biker gang The Over The Hill Gang. These photos are taken from the archive of American artist Michael Woody who is a close relative of one of the organization’s leaders.
The Over the Hill Gang were part of a select group called 'one percenters.’ They lived and worked together as a closed community, sharing a lifestyle centered on building and riding American motorcycles. The group was primarily made up of Vietnam veterans who worked as laborers and on assembly lines in Arlington Texas during the Carter years. The images capture a two-year period in which they reached a pinnacle of cohesive, peripheral existence, but then fell into violent dissolution, seeing many members either imprisoned or worse.
These photographs provide a fascinating look into the margins of American society during the late 1970s, and provide an intimate glimpse into an alternative community seeking liberation in extremes.

'Unstill Lives and Dancerscapes at The Museum of Club Culture'
by Oscar Romp
Preview Monday 9th July
Since the mid eighties Oscar Romp (Artist/dancer) has been employing his unique process at Jazz dance, Northern Soul, and other clubs, capturing the energy and vitality of the dancers. Drawing with pastel and charcoal on large sheets of paper taped to the dance-floor, Oscar fashions an image directly from what he sees (with no photographic intervention). The images are also informed by visual memory- (what he has seen and drawn in the past). Each drawing is an ‘on-the-spot’ improvisation, in which the key elements of the club event (The room, the lighting, the people and their movement) are played around with, moved about on the paper, erased and redrawn, as the evening progresses, until it starts to work as an image…Breaks from the drawing are taken to dance, and breaks from the dancing are taken to draw. Somehow the energy and insight brought by the one activity feeds into the other.
