Design Panel and Private View: Thursday 8 May 6.00 – 9.00pm
Exploring graphic design produced for ‘post punk’ and ‘new wave’ artists in the late 1970s, the Graphic Subcultures research hub at London College of Communication presents a new exhibition showcasing posters, record sleeves, flyers, badges and other graphic material by designers including Barney Bubbles, Jill Mumford, Bob Last, Peter Saville and Malcolm Garrett, demonstrating the breadth and diversity of visual approaches employed within the developing subcultures. Accompanying the exhibition, a design panel on Thursday 8 May will discuss what distinctions (if any) can be drawn between the post punk and new wave scenes in terms of aesthetics, production and design, and debate claims of authenticity made by music journalists, historians and critics of popular culture.
Places for the panel are limited and booking essential.
Jointly co-ordinated by the London College of Communication Graphic Subcultures research group, Manchester Metropolitan University and the Punk Scholars Network in association with the London College of Communication Graduate School.
