Punk and Beyond Art Show (Curated by Gaye Advert)
'Punk and Beyond’ runs from 25th November to 17th December, and will enjoy the luxury of a new bigger gallery space at the Signal Gallery (near Old Street, London), which of course means more artists and more artwork than last year's show.
The list of those former punks showing work is also more varied this year. Alongside art by well-known UK punk stars including Paul Simonon, Marco Pirroni, Penny Rimbaud and Charlie Harper, you can expect to see work by US musicians Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth), Robert Pollard (Guided By Voices) and Marl Mothersbaugh (Devo).
The exhibition will also include a number of specially commissioned artworks that pay tribute to Poly Styrene who sadly lost her battle with cancer earlier this year.
To add to all this, over the four Saturday nights that the show runs, there will be live performances by a number of the musicians included in the show. Watch this space for more details of these.
