Loud Flash: British Punk on Paper

Sept. 5–Oct. 4

Reception & Gallery Talk: Thursday, Sept. 5

Canzani Center Gallery (map it)

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.

Also on view in the Canzani Center Gallery, Sept. 5–Oct. 4, is Martha Colburn's Camera, Lights, Charge, Pop, Kirk Hayes' Rule by Fear, Gary Panter's The Magnetic Lady, and Jeff Smith's RASL.

Gallery Hours: Monday, closed; Tuesday–Friday, 10 a.m.–7 p.m.; Saturday & Sunday, noon–5 p.m.

This program is free and open to the public. If you would like to support programs like this, please donate any amount online (choose the "exhibitions and visiting artists & scholars" option).
