Time to blow my trumpet a little.
There’s an exhibition called Opposition that opened today (Saturday 26th) at the Comme Des Garcons shop in Dover Street Market in the West End of London. Among the exhibits are some copies of Turtle Breeder fanzine of which I was co-editor (and shamefully, totally responsible for the charmingly incompetent anti-design). I can’t truthfully say that that alone is a compelling reason for you to drop everything and hightail it to the capital, but the rest of the exhibition looks interesting. It’s a look at alternative music, design, art and fashion of the eighties – things that were defiantly not of the mainstream. Being 400 miles away, I’ll not be able to go myself, but I may have some pictures in a few days.
You can just make out the bottom edges of two TBs on the top left-hand shelf!
