APPROPRIATE PUNK

HINTERLAND hosted the APPRORPIATE PUNK SHOW. This event was one night only. This groupshow was curated by Adam Gildar (owner of Gildar Gallery) and Cortney Stell (Director RAMCAD)
One night only: June 5

Art-Plant presented Appropriate Punk a multidisciplinary, one night event at Hinterland exploring the legacy of a movement by reinventing it. This event was part of Search & Destroy, the multi-institutional series of punk inspired programs surrounding the MCA Denver's exhibition Bruce Connor and the Primal Scene of Punk. A happening without bounds, Appropriate Punk reinvigorated through the lens of nearly thirty contemporary artists historical punk forms which came to represent various attitudes and aesthetics of rebellion.

Examining the nonhierarchical approach seeded in punk, Appropriate Punk showcases worked by both up-and-coming, as well as established artists investigating this raw subculture and its many iterations. Participating artists were charged with collectively determining all of the aspects of the event from its promotion to presentation. Engaging in this group challenge, the artists worked communally to encourage efforts inherent in DIY culture through physical artist gatherings and collaborations, while updating the means for consistent dialog by using current social network technology as a forum for discussion and decision making.

In the works displayed at Appropriate Punk, expect the unexpected, as performance, multimedia, collage, sculpture, drawing, traditional craft and forms without clear definition share a space. Works on display were not be bound by method or medium, but instead by a willingness to draw freely from symbols within society. Whether or not these symbols were experienced in their original context is beside the point. In fact, it is often this very sense of removed perspective that informs these artists’ practices and in this instance allows for punk of the past to be re-envisioned through contemporary eyes.
