  • An exhibition about Coventry's rave scene between 1985 and 1993 is opening on November 11th. Curated by artist and promoter Adrian Dowling of Daylight Robbery, and presented by Coventry youth culture group Reflection, House Is A Feeling will explore the evolution of electronic music and youth culture in Coventry during a period of social injustice, racism and violence. Alongside the exhibition, a multi-sensory installation including interviews and rave footage has been put together in collaboration with artists, DJs and industry people who were involved back in the '90s. As rave culture exploded, Coventry became home to The Eclipse nightclub, the first venue with an all-night licence in the UK. Running until November 28th, House Is A Feeling will take place at a TBA location. Tickets for the exhibition are available here, while the exhibition and experience combined can be purchased here.
