Preview: The Flyers of Raymond Pettibon

CREEPY CRAWL THESE DAYS – RAYMOND PETTIBON FLYERS

curated by Bryan Ray Turcotte

CREEPY CRAWL THESE DAYS – RAYMOND PETTIBON FLYERS is an exhibition of over 100 original punk flyers from the late 1970s and 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.

Bryan Ray Turcotte is the author of Fucked Up + Photocopied, Punk Is Dead Punk Is Everything, 101 Essential Rock LP’s and director of MOCAtv's The Art of Punk documentary.

Check out some examples of the 130 flyers which will be on display starting on Saturday, January 21 at These Days: 118 Winston Street, 2nd FL Los Angeles, CA 90013
