SYMBOL by Dave King


November 4th, 2011 by

In 1977, in the wilds of Essex, Dave King created a logo for his friend Penny’s impassioned manifesto: “Christ’s Reality Asylum.” Later that same year, he moved to the US. He now lives in San Francisco, where he works as a graphic artist and photographer. In the intervening 34 years, what became the Crass symbol has been emblazoned on records, flags, clothing and human bodies. This exhibit will be the first time the artist has shown original sketches for the logo, alongside alternate versions and contemporary “remixes.” Editions will be available for some of these designs.

TWO EVENTS:

First, the opening on Saturday, November 5th, from 6-9pm.

Second, on Sunday, November 6th, from 12-5pm, we will be holding a PUBLIC STENCIL EVENT. We will be offering FREE on-site logo spray painting. Bring your jacket, your shirt, your skateboard or your best flat surface and we will make you a piece of art.

Hours Saturday/Sunday 12-5pm
