Preview: Jamie Reid "Ragged Kindom" at Subliminal Projects in Los Angeles
Subliminal Projects, a gallery that is owned by Shepard and Amanda Fairey, will be holding an exhibition of works by British born anarchist and artist Jamie Reid starting next week. Ragged Kingdom will be the first solo exhibition that Reid has ever had in Los Angeles and will feature an array of his punk rock and politically conscious ephemera spanning over thirty years.
Jamie Reid is best known for his artistic presence during the infancy of the punk rock movement in the early 1970’s. During this time he designed the cover art for the “Anarchy in The UK” album by the Sex Pistols; now regarded as one of the most iconic images associated with the history of punk culture. Highly recognized for the role he has played in expressing English political dissent, Jamie Reid has been the publisher of a radical and extrinsic zine called the “Suburban Press” which he ran for five years, and is also highly regarded for his print work.
Jamie Reid’s Ragged Kingdom exhibition will also coincide with the release of a Fine Art print, the result of a collaborative effort between Shepard Fairey, Jamie Reid, Subliminal Projects, and Paul Stolper. The editions are being printed at Modern Multiples in Los Angeles. Information on the Editions and their release will be available on Subliminal Projects on Monday, March 12th and the exhibition opens Friday, March 16th from 8-11pm.
