Torn Apart
On view from June 25 - September 8, 2022 is Torn Apart -- the largest exhibition of punk and new wave graphics ever shown on the West Coast. The show includes around one-thousand pieces of graphic design ephemera produced from 1976 to 1986, mostly from England and the US, and includes posters, flyers, publications, clothing, stickers, and buttons. The work is pulled from the Andrew Krivine Collection, curated by CalArts graphic design faculty Michael Worthington, and is accompanied by a selection of vintage punk photographs by renown music photographer Sheila Rock. Torn Apart includes work by well-known designers Barney Bubbles, Jamie Reid, Malcolm Garrett, Peter Saville, Chris Morton, Vivienne Westwood, Mike Coles, Winston Smith, and Raymond Pettibon. Equally important are the spectacular works by less exposed designers such as John Angus, Martin Kaye, X3, and Alex McDowell, along with a plethora of unknown and uncredited designers, both amateur and professional. Torn Apart will be on view at the Pacific Design Center from June 25th through September 9th, 2022. Gallery hours are Tuesday-Friday from 11AM - 5PM and Saturdays: 8/6, 8/20, 9/3, 12PM - 4PM.
