Nice Style: The Worlds First Pose Band

Nice Style: The World’s First Pose Band presents photographs, posters, postcards and archival material relating to ‘Nice Style’, a collaborative performance group set up in Maidstone in 1970 by British artists Bruce McLean, Paul Richards, Gary Chitty, Robin Fletcher and Ron Carr.

Displayed in the Henry Moore Institute’s Gallery 4 space, this is one of the first displays of ‘Nice Style’ since the group disbanded in 1975. The exhibition focuses on the centrality of sculpture for these artists, presenting previously unseen material. Paul Richards and Bruce McLean initially studied sculpture at St Martin’s before teaming up as ‘Nice Style’. They drew as much upon the traditions of figurative sculpture for this project, such as the group figurations of Auguste Rodin, Oskar Schlemmer and George Segal, as they did on popular music and its imagery.
