Clay Perry: Mailing Signals Newsbulletin in 1964

Clay Perry and Signals: two exhibitions

Photographer Clay Perry is a contributor to two current London exhibitions devoted to Signals gallery: one at Sotheby’s S/2 Gallery (Signals, 27 April – 13 July 2018) and the other, a presentation by kurimanzutto at the Thomas Dane Gallery (Signals: If You Like I Shall Grow, 8 June – 21 July 2018).

In the summer of 1964, Clay Perry became the house photographer for Signals London, producing iconic images for the Signals Newsbulletin, the publication that provided a forum for artists, writers and poets involved in experimental art and was ‘dedicated to the adventures of the modern spirit’.

Perry’s archive from the 1960s is represented by England & Co, and director Jane England wrote an essay about him for the book Signals published by S/2 Gallery and also by Sotheby’s online.
