Posted on 9th March 2016 by Clare Guise
A chance to see the 'Chunk of Punk' exhibition at the Barbican that showcases renowned photographer Jill Furmanovsky's mainly unseen collection of anarchic Punk images in a celebration of 40 years of Punk & Q&A with Mark Perry, musician, writer & founder of 'Sniffin' Glue' magazine.
Chunk of Punk is a photographic celebration of 1970’s subversive culture featuring a mainly unseen collection of Punk images of The Buzzocks, The Clash, The Sex Pistols and many more.
In addition fans will be able to enjoy a feast of punk vinyl curated by Barbican Music Library curator Michael Southwell. The collection will include the covers of punk albums and singles that Jill Furmanovsky was involved with, either as photographer or designer.
Homage will be paid to Sniffin Glue Magazine and the style of punk in series of wall hangings that will include photography and symbols of punk iconology. Jill is collaborating on these with fashion house, The Earl of Bedlam and artist, Neil Simon.
Jill says, “I am delighted to be showcasing A Chunk of Punk at the Barbican Music Library. I have been inspired to delve deep into my archives to celebrate the creative energy and inclusiveness of the Punk movement summed up by Mark Ps famous dictum – If you can play three chords you can form a band – It is echoed by my own experience – If you train for two weeks you can be a photographer!”
