Jo Brocklehurst drew live in the underground clubs, theatres and punk squats of 1970-90s London, Berlin and New York.

Join us for a late-night opening; along with booze, DJ sets and performance art it’s your last chance to see this major retrospective, in which 100 figurative portraits chronicle the style and subversion of subculture.

Curator’s tour – 8pm
House of illustration’s Olivia Ahmad will be joined by co-curator Isabelle Bricknall to discuss the exhibition they worked on together. An informal 30-minute gallery tour will offer both informed and personal insights into this major retrospective.

DJ
Nacho is resident DJ for the NYC Downlow (Block9/Glastonbury) and hosts shows for Soho Radio and Balamii with music ranging from disco to garage and gospel. He cut his teeth as a House and Electro DJ in the free party scene of East London in the late 90s and early noughties, going on to hold residencies in innumerable venues across London. Nacho has also been involved in music production, creating electronic soundtracks for silent films screened at the Barbican and self-publishing an album in 2010.

Dress code, performance art and cocktails to be announced.
