International Clash Day Poster Show 

On view in the KEXP Gathering Space through February 2019


The International Clash Day Poster Show is a visual celebration pairing emerging artists with some of the best rock poster artists in the world to to honor International Clash Day! Pieces are created for the general public to use in non-commerical fashion, providing end users beautiful art to fill their homes, offices, and city streets with art inspired by The Clash. 

Some of the best poster designers from around the world are paired with emerging artists to create visual pieces that embody the spirit of The Only Band that Mattered. Designers are tasked with creating pieces influenced by The Clash: a lyric, song, story, or a quote; their social causes or politics; or referencing influences or influencees. 

The message of London Calling and the themes within the album — social displacement, unemployment, racial conflict, drug use, and the responsibilities of adulthood — are as relevant now as they were when the record was released in 1979. Some of the world's best poster artists attack these themes in via limited edition screen prints displayed in the Gathering Space.
