Punk in the Provinces

The Exchange, North Shields, August 2017

Exhibition of punk art, design, graphics and clothing exploring twin themes: the influence of punk as it swept through the regions, and the do-it-yourself ethos of the early punk pioneers. Part of the Whitley Bay Film Festival programme, including a live performance by Penetration supported by Jilted John and a screening of The Great Rock ‘n’ Roll Swindle. The exhibition also included Pauline Murray’s original hand-made and dyed clothing from throughout her career with seminal punk group Penetration alongside her scrapbooks of press cuttings and photographs of live performances dating back to 1977.
