Alongside world renowned design team Studio Myerscough, Capsule transformed the Gas Hall to create a multi faceted exhibition.
After devising the narrative, sourcing the collection and making invaluable connections with dedicated fans through to corporate sponsors, Capsule curated and produced ‘Home of Metal – 40 years of Heavy Metal and its unique birthplace’.
The exhibition explored the social history of the region, from its metal bashing industries to the post war home life of working class families, beginning the story of Heavy Metal. The exhibition featured key objects from Heavy Metal history including Judas Priest stage costumes and original artwork, early Black Sabbath posters and even a hand written letter from a teenage Lars Ullrich of Metallica.
“Awesome! Loved it. Really interactive…We have come all the way from Australia and not disappointed at all.”
“What a fab, well put together exhibition. Very interesting, even for people like me who aren’t necessarily into the full Heavy Metal.”
