Riot Grrrl Exhibition Banner

This exhibition has been curated and designed by Jem Thorp – a third year undergraduate student studying Design for Performance at BCU at Birmingham School or Art – and has been commissioned by Pedro Cravinho, Keeper of the Archives, Faculty of Arts, Design and Media.

It was selected as the winning project of Design for Performance’s live brief module, in which Design for Performance students conducted research at the Arts, Design and Media Archives on the New Musical Express collection.

Jem’s project was focused on exposing sexism within the music scene, and how female punk musicians in the Riot Grrrl movement fought back against it.

The ‘Riot Grrrl, 90s Feminist Punk, and the NME’ exhibition is part of Birmingham City University’s International Women’s Day 2024 celebration.
