ROCK STARS: Punk to Pop extended until 9th January 2022 at the Pantiles Arcade, 49 Lower Walk, Royal Tunbridge Wells TN2 5TE

A selling exhibition of iconic images of David Bowie, Debbie Harry, John Lennon, and many more, opens at the Design Gallery in Royal Tunbridge Wells until 9th January 2022. Rock photography has become one of the fastest-growing art investments of the 21st Century. A private collection of rare, limited edition photographs shot in 1970s downtown New York and London’s Soho are to be offered for sale, all signed by the photographers.

The musicmakers and culturemakers featured include Iggy Pop, Andy Warhol, Patti Smith, The Ramones, The New York Dolls, The Clash, Sex Pistols and Lou Reed. The exhibition is curated by author and journalist Stephen Colegrave to celebrate the 20th anniversary of his and Chris Sullivan’s best-selling book  “PUNK. A Life Apart”, based on over 100 interviews with leading punk figures. Over the last 20 years this has been recognised as a seminal work and studied in universities and colleges worldwide.

The important artefacts tell the inside stories of one of the most dramatic periods in music-making history and are rarely available for sale. The works were originally created by the late Leee Black Childers (Photographer and The Heartbreakers Manager and Bowie Tour Manager), the late Warhol photographer Nat Finkelstein, and acclaimed American rock photographer Bob Gruen. The prints are signed by the photographers. Also included are prints from original silk screens from Vivienne Westwood and Malcolm McLaren’s shop SEX.

Talks hosted by Colegrave will be held during the weekends of the 7-week exhibition and are free to attend.

This visual lexicon is staged within The Design Gallery’s showrooms which feature Art Deco, Modernist and Mid-Century furniture, lighting, sculpture and jewellery. Colleagues including Eric Knowles (BBC Antiques Roadshow) sell four centuries of design within this new centre which is being called “spectacular” by clients and visitors.

Rock Stars: Punk to Pop is open Tuesdays to Saturdays 10am-5pm and Sundays 11am-4pm at The Design Gallery, Pantiles Arcade, 49 Lower Walk, The Pantiles, Royal Tunbridge Wells, Kent TN2 5TE. Please email or telephone us for further information: sales@designgallery.co.uk 01959 561234 / 07974322858
