International Punk Art. Curated by Tara Bursey and Ben Needham

An art exhibition featuring Adam Kindred (Halifax), Alex Ratcharge (France), Alexander Heir (NYC), Dustin McChesney (Minneapolis), Emma Maatman (LA), Erick Lyle (NYC), Heather Benjamin (NYC), Jill Pucciarelli (NYC), Leah Wishnia (NYC), Matthew McGarry (Rochester), Nathan Gattis (Chicago), Paul D'Elia (LA), Sam Ryser (NYC), Shiva Addanki (NYC), Spoiler (Montreal), Tara Bursey (Toronto), Weird Luke (NYC) and Yecatl Peña (Mexico)

Punk is everywhere. From malls to museums, the influence and imagery of punk’s past has largely been absorbed into mass culture. Despite this, contemporary DIY punk rock sits firmly outside of the mainstream, and at both regional and global levels is stronger than ever. The visual culture that surrounds it is variably dark, threatening, chaotic, smart, funny, mysterious and questioning.

Fear of Punk / Fear of Art highlights the creative output of current punk artists, bringing their work out of its usual context while exploring intersections between punk rock, art and print culture. The exhibition includes drawing, sculpture and printed matter that draws inspiration from horror, the occult, sex, despair, popular culture, comics, art history and urban life.
