Fear of Punk / Fear of Art – Communication Gallery / 7-10PM

An exhibition celebrating contemporary punk art. Fear Of Punk / Fear Of Art highlights the creative output of current punk artists, bringing their work out of its usual context while exploring intersections between punk rock, art and print culture. Curated by Ben Needham and Tara Bursey.

Saturday August 3rd / Panel Discussion – XPACE

XPACE hosts a panel discussion with Mary “Mack” Tremonte, Michael Comeau and more TBA.

Over the last few decades, the form and content of zines as well as the way they are created and disseminated has changed. From punk fanzines to contemporary photo zines, postal to online dissemination, and intersections between art, politics, comics, music and literature, this intergenerational zine talk will explore shifts and similarities between zines and self-publishing practices of the past and present.
