Creepy Crawl These Days "Raymond Pettibon Flyers" From The Collection Of Bryan Ray Turcotte @ These Days Gallery In Los Angeles

Creepy Crawl These Days "Raymond Pettibon Flyers" is an exhibition of over 130 original punk flyers from the late 1970s through mid-80s either created by or utilizing the artwork of influential artist Raymond Pettibon for bands such as Black Flag, Minutemen, Sacharine Trust, Circle Jerks, Wasted Youth, Throbbing Gristle, Red Cross and Descendents. Culled from the archives of sub-culture historian, archivist and collector Bryan Ray Turcotte, these unintentional pieces of art speak to us on many levels. Not only do they afford a look at the early work of this now-legendary and highly acclaimed artist, but they also offer a glimpse into the era’s underground DIY hardcore music scene. These DIY advertisements, torn and frayed, rescued from countless telephone poles and walls, suffering staples, tape and paste are physical representations of the 20th century’s most influential music scene and its most revered artist. The exhibition will be on view until February 26, 2017 at These Days in Los Angeles. photographs by Oliver Maxwell Kupper
