This is a re-edited version of an exhibition curated in 2011 by artist and BEEF member Toby Huddlestone.
The three-minute punk-rock song is the most generous form of artistic expression ever created. Via its duration and content it is formulated to punch hard and fast. Within the body of the punk-rock song are strewn errors, spasms, glorious hic-ups and splutters, not that dissimilar to how we live life.
Many of the artists in this exhibition recognise the poignancy of a wanting for cultural quickness, and the importance of practice as we continue to create, and in doing so, take necessary time away from an increasingly speedier and neurotic world. The works in this show are not one-hit wonders and not necessarily about punk; but like the punk rock song, they arrest us and reverberate a political stance through us, shuddering us into an altered state.
