NEWS///MIAMI///ANNOUNCING THE ART BASEL “KILL YOUR IDOLS” INSTALLATION SPACE
In honor of the publication of punk art book "Punk is Dead, Punk is Everything” by “Fucked Up & Photocopied” author BRYAN RAY TURCOTTE, historic punk footwear supplier CONVERSE is presenting the KILL YOUR IDOLS installation at this year’s ART BASEL art fair as a grand nod of nihilistic nostalgia. Featuring nightly punk performances by bands like Hex Dispensers, Caustic Christ, and Sex/Vid, the installation features imagery from “Punk is Dead” alongside a show of imagery by OG punk photographer EILEEN POLK who captured bands like The Clash, The Misfits, The Ramones, Johnny Thunders, Television, and The Dead Boys in their prime, long before Punk was socially acceptable, much less a viable corporate marketing tool.
