Join us as we talk to Chris Scoates , Director of The Museum of Arts and Design and Andrew Krivine curator,Too Fast to Live, Too Young to Die: Punk Graphics, 1976-1986, based almost entirely on Andrew’s collection. The exhibition will tour through the end of 2021 and is currently being presented by the Museum of Arts and Design in New York City through Aug. 18, 2019
The Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) will present Too Fast to Live, Too Young to Die: Punk Graphics, 1976–1986, an exhibition that explores the punk and post-punk movements through the lens of graphic design. The exhibition, on view from April 9 through August 18, 2019, will feature more than four hundred of punk’s most memorable graphics, including flyers, posters, album covers, promotions, zines, and other ephemera.
“Too Fast to Live, Too Young to Die charts punk’s explosive impact on design and examines its complex relationship with art, history, and culture,” said Chris Scoates, MAD’s Nanette L. Laitman Director. “Punk questioned everything, and it’s that spirit of inquiry that is driving MAD forward today, presenting and debating innovative works and ideas with lots of energy, color, and noise. During Museum hours, a multimedia presentation, Please Kill Me: Voices from the Archive, will play continuously in the gallery. Narrated by McNeil and McCain and compiled by filmmaker/artist Brendan Toller, the presentation includes vintage interviews from IggyPop, Joey and Dee Dee Ramone, Debbie Harry, Jim Carroll, Billy Name, and others, combined with never-before-seen photographs and ephemera from Fred W. McDarrah, Adam Ritchie, Danny Fields, Bob Gruen, James Marshall and Gillian McCain, David Godlis, Leni
Sinclair, Mike Barich, Natalie Schlossman, Paul Zone, and Tom Hearn.
