The "Yes Yes Yes—Alternative Press" exhibition, held in Urbino at Collegio Tridente
in June 2014, deals with the 60s and 70s and the social, political, artistic and cultural
events that have defined the counterculture.
The outrageous contents of the underground magazines of that time reflected the achievements of a new society which was in conflict with the official power. The graphic layout was subversive and innovative. These publications helped to revolutionize the aesthetics of modern society.
"Yes Yes Yes—Alternative Press" proposes a chronological series of magazines, from the European Provo publications to the revolutionary underground American prints of the 60s and 70s and the Punk period of 1977, the last revolution before the gray post-modern cultural alienation.
