Richard Lees – This is Hull! Rock Against Racism Posters UK Exhibition Tour 2016/17.
Hull Rock Against Racism got started in 1979, a bit after everyone else. They were community activists, grassroots anti-racist campaigners promoting regular RAR gigs with local bands in the heart of West Hull. Richard’s silkscreen posters were also a bit out of step. No ripped ransom note and safety pinned punk graphics. Instead, images were taken from radical artwork – often German Expressionist woodcuts, Soviet Constructivist film posters or Paris 68 screen prints – and adapted for a new purpose.
Catch the exhibition of the Rock Against Racism posters in the Brodrick Gallery in Hull School of Art & Design.
