Temporary Hoarding and RAR Graphics

3 October 2019 until 31 October 2019
Hillhead Library

As part of Black History Month 2019 we are pleased to be displaying the enlarged covers of the fanzine Temporary Hoarding at Hillhead Library alongside a number of posterworks promoting anti-racist events, gigs and carnivals. These posterworks were first presented in 2017 to augment the exhibition Rock Against Racism by Syd Shelton at Street Level Photoworks.

Syd Shelton was one of the key graphic designers who created Temporary Hoarding, the fanzine of Rock Against Racism. as well as posters to promote events, which were all done in the punk style of the time.

Also on display is a selection of material related to Scottish Rock Against Racism events and activities. The material was lent by various individuals involved in cultural and activist anti-racist work in the late 1970s and early 1980s. The display includes rare photographs and graphics from the RAR Edinburgh Carnival in Craigmillar in 1978, and various other memorabilia and photographic remnants from the time.

This exhibition is one of a series that revisits selected projects marking Street Level’s 30th Anniversary.
