Golden pop art in Halmstad

HALMSTAD – Pop25 lets The Daily Roxette know that there will be another exhibit in Halmstad this summer, namely “Gyllene Popkonst – en resa genom 25 år (Golden Pop Art – a journey through 25 years)”. This exhibit will concentrate on Gyllene Tider’s, Roxette’s and Per Gessle’s records, and the album as a phenomenon. “We’ve had this idea for a long while, and when it was clear that Gyllene Tider would tour in 2004 we had nothing stopping us anymore,” Joakim Andersson and Micael Magnusson, the creators of the exhibition say.

  There will be over 500 different records and cassettes to see, from twenty or so countries. Everything from Gyllene Tider’s first yellow EP via Per Gessle’s solo material to Roxette records from the four corners of the world. Every record and edition has its own story and anecdotes which will be told at the exhibition.

  The exhibit is arranged by two record collectors and there is no entrance fee. The address is at Kungsgatan 2 in Halmstad. It will be open between 11:00 and 17:00 CET, Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, from July 6 through July 30.
