Formed in 1977, Crass were the ultimate proponents of the DIY punk ethic. They ran their own record label, produced unique gatefold record covers and posters, spray-painted graffiti messages around London, distributed zines and booklets at gigs and were famous for their formidable live performances. Questions about the band were raised in parliament and they remained a thorn in the side of the establishment up to – and beyond – their break-up in 1984.

This exhibition includes records, posters, prints, videos, books and other items from Leicester-based digital artist Sean Clark’s collection of Crass-related materials, built up over almost 20 years. Thought-provoking, confrontational, angry and beautiful in equal measures, the art of Crass remains as important now as it was almost four decades ago.

Recent work by members of Crass will also be on show and the exhibition will be accompanied by a number of live events.
