A re-imagining of Pop Art and Punk Rock. What was so hip about these two genres was the Attitude and
Danger.  The ability to make people question the social norms, to question what art is.  They made us want to be different, to speak up, to wear leather and rock some Raybans.  This show captures that forgotten glory.  It is POP. It is PUNK. We are taking over littlefield with edgy installation work, photography, paintings, wheat pastings, and street art by Tip Toe, Pork, Josh Mccutchen, Mar Granados, Mikal Hameed, Michael Paniccia, and Brian Whiteley.  Art show to be followed by a band showcase featuring three amazing acts.  The Rakehells, Devin Therriault, and The Dirty Fences. In the post-punk era, these bands are leading the pack.  Fresh, hot, and hook heavy with lots of attitude.  They pack a punch.

 

Littlefield is a performance and art space in Brooklyn’s Gowanus neighborhood nestled between Park Slope and Carroll Gardens. Housed in an old, 6200-square foot warehouse dating from the 1920s, littlefield merges the Gowanus’ industrial past with a sustainable future. These elements include a landscaped interior courtyard, sound walls formed from recycled rubber tires, a bar built from salvaged bowling alley lanes, and energy supplied by wind power. Coupled with an industrial/organic aesthetic is a state-of-the-art sound system designed for live music, art installations, and film screenings.
