Metro supports 'Punk Weekender' at the Photographers’ Gallery

14 June 2016
As part of our Punk London partnership Metro is supporting the ‘Punk Weekender’ with The Photographers’ Gallery where a weekend of special events is being hosted.  

Marking forty years of punk heritage and influence the weekend explores the ideological, social and political context of the Punk insurgence in Soho and Greater London and surveys a plethora of subcultures that followed on from punk, drawing together significant bodies of works from the last forty years and featuring skinheads, mods and female youth tribes.

The Print Sales Gallery features never before exhibited images of punks shot in the 1980s by Shirley Baker. Best known and celebrated for her warm and humorous street photographs of inner city life in Manchester, Baker’s punk pictures reveal a different aspect to her work. The display contains rare colour portraits alongside black and white prints all framed by Metro, which capture the provocative style and attitude of punk youth culture and offer a glimpse into the vibrant and dynamic nature of various punk cliques.

The gallery’s Media Wall presents a specially commissioned timeline from Nick Knight’s SHOWstudio, based around interviews he conducted with key punk figures. The timeline comprises images, videos and texts tracing the evolution of punk through the decades.

Additionally a digital presentation of iconic work by Anita Corbin, Owen Harvey, Janette Beckman, Derek Ridgers and Gavin Watson will be on show alongside archival images from Photographic Youth Music and Culture Archive and the world’s largest music and technology archive, EMI Archive.

The Punk Weekender is also accompanied by two offsite exhibitions on display at Sonos Studio staged as part of the year-long initiative, Punk London.
The Photographers’ Gallery, 16-18 Ramillies St, Soho, London W1F 7LW

Exhibition dates: 23rd – 26th June 2016
Opening times: Mon – Sat 10:00am – 6:00pm; Thu 10.00am – 8:00pm;  Sun 11:00am – 18:00pm
