Exhibition: 16 September - 22 October 2022
From the late 1970s to the mid-1980s, the British graphic designer David King’s protest posters gave left-wing causes a powerfully persuasive new identity. His extra-bold designs for the Anti- Nazi League, the Anti-Apartheid Movement, the National Union of Journalists, and other organisations presented their messages with a graphic force and conviction that no one could ignore. King was a master of hard-hitting typography with an equally assured command of photography.
This exhibition will display key posters from his body of work, as well as his unmissable covers for City Limits, a radical weekly London listings magazine, which work like mini-posters.
