I have this framed in my bedroom and even though that’s probably not the most suitable place for it, I like there, ready to invoke thought at any time.

‘SOMEDAY ALL THE ADULTS WILL DIE’
Punk Graphics 1971- 1984
Hayward Gallery Project Space, London, UK
14 September – 4 November 2012
“If you don’t like the culture you are spoon-fed, you can make your own. It worked wonders at the end of the seventies, and all these jagged, chiaroscuro urgent masterpieces of graphic design, executed by art school masters alongside anguished adolescents continue to reverberate as get-up-and-get-on-with-it eyeball-pleasers.” -Johan Kugelberg, co-curator
Spanning a range of different media, works presented in ‘Someday All the Adults Will Die’: Punk Graphics 1971 – 1984 include: various ephemera such as clothing designed by Vivienne Westwood and Malcolm McLaren; early press releases and pamphlets for the Sex Pistols and the Ramones; publications and early fanzines including London’s Outrage, Punk, Sniffin’ Glue, and Suburban Press; a rare chance to see and hear a collection of DIY 7” records from international punk labels and artists of the period; situationist-informed prints produced at art school by Malcolm McLaren; limited edition Black Flag prints from the early 1980s by Raymond Pettibon; a Linder Sterling flyer for a 1978 Joy Division performance in Manchester; and six banners used to advertise The Great Rock ‘n’ Roll Swindle, a 1980 ‘documentary’ film about the Sex Pistols, designed by Jamie Reid – whose cut-and-paste aesthetic became synonymous with the graphic imagery of the punk movement, particularly in the UK.
