Punk Lives at Subliminal Projects

Punk Lives at Subliminal Projects with an opening reception on Saturday, July 13th, 7-10PM.

PRESS RELEASE: Subliminal Projects is pleased to present PUNK LIVES, a group exhibition celebrating the intersection of punk and art, curated in collaboration with Destroy Art, a Bay Area DIY punk art organization dedicated to supporting and promoting visual artists from the punk rock community. The multi-format exhibition will feature artistic pioneers of the original 1977 punk scene, a small selection of new works by gallery owner Shepard Fairey, a group of contemporary punk-inspired artists, and a public participatory flyer project that invites our community to submit a digital punk-inspired illustration that will be plastered along the gallery hallway, paying homage to traditional punk venues and the foundation of punk art.
In response to the relentless economic climate of the late 1970s, punk subculture was born from a DIY anti-establishment ethos, expressed through music, fashion, literature, film, and visual art. Despite its raw, imperfect, and sometimes irreverent nature, punk has established permanence in mainstream culture, not just as an aesthetic but as a lifestyle of continuous innovation, rebellion, and a commitment to carving out one’s own path in a conformist society. As punk rock approaches its 50th anniversary, PUNK LIVES showcases the rich history, vibrant present, and the exciting future of punk art.
