The Art of Punk Book Launch and Exhibition


Art of Punk

The Art of Punk Book Launch & Exhibition 
London College of Communication

Launch: Wednesday 17 October, 5.00 – 9.00pm 
Exhibition:  17 – 26 October 

London College of Communication (LCC) hosts an Exhibition and book launch for The Art of Punk – the first ever comprehensive review of punk art and design ever published – co-written and complied by LCC Head of Postgraduate Graphic Design course leader Russell Bestley and Alex Ogg.

The Art of Punk highlights the evolution of the punk movement within graphic design and print, and its impact on fashion and popular culture. Famous graphics for legendary bands like the Ramones, the Sex Pistols, the Damned, Misfits and the Clash are included, alongside less celebrated examples from South America, behind the old “Iron Curtain” and as far afield as the Himalayas and Kazakhstan.

Just as importantly, the book assesses the impact punk has made on the modern art world; from Jennifer Egan’s recent Pulitzer Prize-winning literary work to the graphics of Shepard Fairey (behind the Obama ‘Hope’ poster), Turner Prize nominated Dexter Dalwood, Marjane Satrapi (the Oscar-nominated Persepolis) and Banksy.

The Art of Punk Book Launch
Wednesday 17 October, 5.00-9.00pm 

Following the overwhelming response to our parallel launch event at the Tate Modern, scheduled 4 October, join us for an evening of film and discussions around the Punk movement. Including one of the first screenings in Europe of the award winning documentary Beijing Punk, which follows the underground punk scene in China.

  • 5pm onwards: a screening of the documentary Beijing Punk, just released in Europe, which follows the underground punk scene in China at the time of the Beijing Olympics.
  • 6pm onwards: guest speakers and presentations on music graphics and punk graphics including designers  Malcolm Garrett (Buzzcocks, Duran Duran), Bill Smith (The Jam, The Cure, UB40), Peter Gravelle (photographer for the Sex Pistols, Damned) and Rob O’Connor (of Stylorouge – Squeeze, Killing Joke, Blur).
  • 8pm onwards: discussion on punk in academia, led by Phil Kiszely of Leeds University, the lead editor of the academic journal Punk + Post Punk.
