Torn Apart Exhibition Panel Discussion

Torn Apart: Punk + New Wave Graphics, Fashion and Culture, 1976-1986

This exhibition at the Hamon Arts Library brings together two notable collections of posters, flyers, clothing and ephemera from the highly influential era of punk and New Wave, DIY movements that ushered in a cultural shift in Britain and the United States in the mid-1970s. Featured in Torn Apart are the print collections of Andrew Krivine, scholar and collector, and the clothing collection of Malcolm Garrett, prominent graphic designer of this decade for bands. Graphic works include designs for The Sex Pistols, The Clash, Buzzcocks, The Cramps, Grace Jones, Talking Heads, Devo and many more. Clothing pieces from revolutionary shops on King’s Road in 1970s London include BOY and Vivienne Westwood’s SEX and Seditionaries.

Krivine and Garrett will speak about their collections and experiences in the early days of punk rock. Michael Worthington, curator of the exhibition, and faculty and co–director of the Graphic Design program at CalArts, will moderate this discussion.
