crass

Formed in 1977, Crass were the ultimate proponents of the DIY punk ethic. They ran their own record label, produced unique gatefold record covers and posters, spray-painted graffiti messages around London, distributed ‘zines and booklets at gigs and were famous for their formidable live performances. Questions about the band were raised in parliament and they remained a thorn in the side of the establishment up to – and beyond – their break-up in 1984.

This exhibition includes records, posters, prints, videos, books and other items from Leicester-based digital artist Sean Clark’s collection of Crass-related materials, built up over almost 20 years. Thought-provoking, confrontational, angry and beautiful in equal measures, the art of Crass remains as important now as it was almost four decades ago.
