100 Club Picture Show 11/5/08

I was dropped details of the above exhibition:

100 Club Picture Show Friday 9th May – Sunday 11th May
Curated by Emily Beaver
Main Show for Public:
Friday 9th May – Sunday 11th May
12pm – 4pm
Free Entry

Announcing a new permanent display for the walls of the world famous 100 Club.

For 3 days the 100 Club will open the doors through the afternoon, giving the public unlimited access to view the work and venue for free.

Photographs from the club, spanning the last 60 years will include Jazz and Blues by Walter Hanlon, Terry Cryer and Chas McDevitt, The Punk Festival of 1976 shot by Barry Plummer, Ray Stevenson and Jill Furmanovsky and Rock and Indie acts by Paul Slattery, Dean Chalkley and Ross Halfin. Bringing you The Sex Pistols, The Clash, Siouxsie Sioux, Metallica, Oasis, Humphrey Lyttelton, Gallows, Chuck Berry, The Damned, Primal Scream and The Horrors to name but a few.

Still standing after 60 years the 100 Club has earned a long overdue show of appreciation, not only for being a place of historical importance for music, but also for remaining a personal treasure to many. The inspiration for the exhibition came from The Rolling Stones on stage at the club in 1982, images of which were donated to the club by Carole Lateman, only to be stored away and forgotten for over 20 years. Recently discovered, they sparked the desire to put them where they belong on the walls of the club for the public’s enjoyment.

With a capacity of 300, the 100 Club shows are always intimate and accessible. This show serves to update the famous walls, rather than transform them, keeping the existing style of the interior.
