PILLY WILLY: Rave Ephemera from the Irish queer underground 1970-00's.
In 2016 Pussys displayed the Irish Queer Archive’s collection of club flyers, largely from the time when being gay was still illegal. I created the exhibition branding and a range of merch influenced by the flyers.

IQA FLYERS

Flyers sourced from the Irish Queer Archive. Designed by Niall Sweeney.
