Reception & Artist Talks: Thursday, June 22, 6 – 8pm


The exhibition PUNK HOUSE will take place in the Mike Kelley Mobile Homestead and will be on view September 8, 2017 through January 7, 2018. Curated by Cary Loren, a founding member of the influential Michigan-based band and artist collective Destroy All Monsters, PUNK HOUSE is a companion exhibition to SONIC REBELLION: MUSIC AS RESISTANCE, that highlights the music, art, and activism of the Detroit punk and noise art scene from the 1970s to present day. While centering around ephemera culled from the archive of Destroy All Monsters, the exhibition will also feature posters, flyers, zines, and records presenting the many influences that drove their artistic and counterculture expression. PUNK HOUSE will also feature an interior mural by Savage Pencil, and a new site-specific installation by Detroit-based artist James J. Millross (aka Jimbo Easter). In conjunction with Third Man Records, a limited run LP will be pressed featuring live music by many of the artists represented in PUNK HOUSE, and a limited edition graphic zine (with cover pictured above, by Savage Pencil) will also be created with an accompanying DVD featuring live performance footage.

Through installation, video, music, and ephemera, PUNK HOUSE aims to situate the role of “punk” within the broader theme of cultural resistance. Participants include (this list is under formation and subject to change): Time Stereo, Aaron Dilloway, Zoot's Coffee House, Suzy Poling, James J. Millross (aka Jimbo Easter), Outrageous Cherry, Nate Young and John Olson of Wolf Eyes, Tasty Soil/Chris Pottinger, Timmy Lampinen, ADULT. / Nicola Kuperus and Adam Lee Miller, Half Japanese/ Jad and David Fair, Michael Dykehouse, Cinecyde, Mark Thomas Dancey, ROTLAND PRESS / Ryan Standfest, Trumbullplex (AKA the Wayne Association for Collective Housing), Destroy All Monsters, Savage Pencil (Sav X).

PUNK HOUSE is an extension of many different efforts and archives. Each of the participants will be given a section inside the Mobile Homestead to display their works and collections. PUNK HOUSE is organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit and exhibition support is provided by Curator of Education and Public Engagement Amy Corle and Ford Curatorial Fellow Scott Campbell.
