BUG SPECIAL: The American Dream

In a special show in conjunction with the British Museum, in celebration of the exhibition The American Dream: pop to the present, BUG presents an idiosyncratic survey of American music videos – from the late 70s, when bands like Devo and Talking Heads explored the new medium, through the 80s pomp of MTV, when art and commerce collided in big budget videos by David Fincher, Spike Jonze and Hype Williams, to the YouTube generation, when creativity went viral in the hands of OK Go and others.

Adam Buxton guides us through with fun facts and laughs in equal measure during this whistlestop tour through a different form of American pop art.

Friday 21 April 2017 - 19.00

Friday 12 May 2017 - 19.00

Tickets are available on the British Museum Website
