The V&A was inviting him and his co-curator to put together what has four years later become Postmodernism: Style and Subversion 1970-1990. Dates and significant collective events matter. He reminded me as I left that it is 30 years to the month since the Memphis Group, the Meistersingers of Post-Modernism, made their debut at the Salone del Mobile in Milan. There is nothing in the V&A exhibition that hints at the battleground fury as the dreams of the 1968ers collided with real power in the mid to late 1970s when Post-Modernism flowered.
Your daily guide to all things hip, retro and vintage, from design and interiors through to fashion and style plus everything in-between. If you haven't yet been along to the Postmodernism exhibition at the V&A, we heartily recommend you make your way down there post haste. There really is something for everyone who loves the 70s to the 90s, from architecture & consumables to fashion & popular culture.

As exemplified by the Memphis group’s antic asymmetries or the high-low architectural fugues of Michael Graves, Hans Hollein, and even Philip Johnson (who killed his own master narrative with New York’s ersatz-Georgian AT&T building), postmodern style once enjoyed a reputation as the most bemusing interlude in recent design history
Postmodernism: Style and Subversion, 1970–90 presents the movement not as merely an aesthetic vocabulary, but also as a subversive attitude-a new way of looking at the world. Bringing together practitioners, theorists, and critics, this groundbreaking book assesses the impact of the phenomenon on all areas of art and design
The material products of this phenomenon dominate here; which figures, since materiality in both the sense of what things are made of, and how an idea of their worth changes the way things look, lay at the very heart of postmodernism. Perhaps this show should have been called ‘Postmodernism: A Warning from History’: an object lesson in what happens when you remove rules then try and re-impose them, something its practitioners seemed appropriately to have picked up from financial markets. But to have created even a semi-coherent show out of its self-doubting vagaries is something of an achievement.
Postmodernism, Style & Subversion, 1970-1990". Victoria and Albert Museum, London. September 24, 2011-January 15, 2012. As a style, postmodernism is a delight; as a way of thinking, it is incoherent.
