CCAD’s Canzani Center Gallery already had a great start to the exhibition season with Leonardo Drew’s exhibition, but now it has hit high speed with the opening of 5 separate shows! This evening’s feature will be Loud Flash: British Punk on Paper, http://www.ccad.edu/events-2013/mott.
Join us TONIGHT! Thursday September 5 for gallery talk with Vivian Goldman, http://viviengoldman.com/, at 5pm and reception at 6pm. (Free and Open to the Public)
Loud Flash is an exhibition of posters from the collection of artist and designer Toby Mott, who began collecting punk-related artifacts as a teenager during the 1970s and has amassed more than 1,000 items. The show includes iconic work by Jamie Reid for the Sex Pistols and Linder Sterling for the Buzzcocks, as well as a huge range of material by anonymous artists of the era who used the art of the poster to give bands, most of which were excluded from TV and daytime radio and struggled for exposure in the mainstream press, a means of reaching the public.
Exhibition will be on view Sept 5- Oct 4
Gallery Hours: Tuesday-Friday: 10am – 7pm, Saturday-Sunday: noon – 6pm
Free and Open to the Public
