Punk. Its Traces in Contemporary Art

Art Free
Punk. Sus rastros en el arte contemporáneo

The rage of the punk era that exploded in the 1970s bucking the system and its nonsense, takes a calmer turn at the Centro de Arte Dos de Mayo (CA2M), in an exhibition featuring works by more than 50 Spanish and international artists. The libertarian impulse and often destructive attitude of the punk movement runs through this exhibition with connections to contemporary art, which can also be subject to the same  discomfort and dissatisfaction. The show includes photographs, bits of documentaries, singular pieces, video, painting and large installations, plus creations based on noise, cut-out typography, anti-design, and intentional ugliness.
