NEW SHOW: Symbol by Dave King
goteblud


In 1977, in the wilds of Essex, Dave King created a logo for his friend Penny's impassioned manifesto: "Christ's Reality Asylum." Later that same year, he moved to the US. He now lives in San Francisco, where he works as a graphic artist and photographer. In the intervening 34 years, what became the Crass symbol has been emblazoned on records, flags, clothing and human bodies. This exhibit will be the first time the artist has shown original sketches for the logo, alongside alternate versions and contemporary "remixes." Editions will be available for some of these designs.

TWO EVENTS:

First, the opening on Saturday, November 5th, from 6-9pm.

Second, on Sunday, November 6th, from 12-5pm, we will be holding a PUBLIC STENCIL EVENT. We will be offering FREE on-site logo spray painting. Bring your jacket, your shirt, your skateboard or your best flat surface and we will make you a piece of art.

Goteblüd, 766 Valencia, San Francisco
Hours Saturday/Sunday 12-5pm

Printopia
goteblud
This year's SF Zine Fest was simply incredible. We were blown away at the quality and the scope of independent publishing... especially things that go under the radar of indie press. It really proved that paper publishing is as important as ever. Thank you to everyone who inspired!

Also, here at Goteblüd we have some really incredible news to bring you in a month or so. We'll have more details shortly, but we are excited at some new directions and new shows coming to our space very soon. Watch this site for more info.

Finally, we will be formally announcing our annual trip to the NY Art Book Fair this month, so stay tuned.

2011 SF Zine Fest!
