‘In Your Face’ at the iconic Liberty store in London
Metro is delighted to be continuing our support of the year long initiative Punk London and it’s succession of events. In collaboration with The Photographers’ Gallery once again, the series of exhibitions proceeds with ‘In Your Face’ at the iconic Liberty London.
‘In your Face’ is a collection of iconic punk portraits produced by photographers including Derek Ridgers, Anita Corbin, Owen Harvey and Gavin Watson and style statements on display in the renowned Liberty London store windows. It reflects the continuing legacy of punk which exploded on to the London scene in the late 1970’s. Punk celebrated raw attitude, youth culture, provocation and self- expression, paving the way for the unique DIY sounds, subcultures and fashion that came afterwards.
Metro produced Duratrans prints for the bespoke lightboxes which were created by Lite House. The images on display are selected from Punk Weekender -a special exhibition held at The Photographers’ Gallery in June this year marking 40 years of punk- reflecting both the collective and individual approaches to punk that continue to influence contemporary culture today.
The installation runs until 28th August 2016
Liberty London, Regent Street, London W1B 5AH
