I Wanna Be Me Exhibition: Lucy Bell Gallery

Smashing onto the cultural scene in the mid-1970s, punk rock was a period of music history that excited and challenged like no other. Angry, loud, and anarchic, it was the voice of the disillusioned youth that changed not only music, but fashion, culture and society forever.

Rockarchive.com is proud to present in collaboration with the Lucy Bell Gallery I Wanna Be Me an exhibition that celebrates the unique spirit of punk and it’s enduring legacy. The exhibition features a unique collection of iconic and rare photographs of key musicians that pioneered the punk revolution and some of those most inspired by it.

The display includes images of The Clash, Sex Pistols, Buzzcocks, Undertones & The Slits, plus punk influenced artists such as The Cramps, The Jam, Debbie Harry and Joy Division. Specially curated by Rockarchive for the exhibition, the photographs capture punk rock’s irrepressible attitude and spirit.

Highlights from the exhibition include Sheila Rock’s classic photograph of The Clash taken in Camden in 1977, the Sex Pistols performing onstage at the legendary 100 Club in 1976 by Ray Stevenson and Kevin Cummins’ enduring shot of the Buzzcocks playing Liverpool University in 1979.

The display is led by a large collection of punk prints by renowned music photographer Jill Furmanovsky, many of which are brand new print editions, and it also includes work by Michael Putland, Howard Barlow, Richard Mann, Jorgen Angel, Gerard McNamara, Mick Gold, Syd Shelton, Max Browne and graphic art by The Postman.

The I Wanna Be Me exhibition is taking place at the Lucy Bell Gallery in St Leonards-on-Sea from 21 October-21 December 2022.
