Punk House exhibition set up in Mike Kelley's Mobile Homestead

The exhibition features an interior mural by The Wire’s Savage Pencil

An exhibition called Punk House is up and running at Mike Kelley's Mobile Homestead, a full-scale replica of the single-story childhood home of Detroit, Michigan born artist and Destroy All Monsters member, the late Mike Kelley.

Running until 7 January, the exhibition is curated by Destroy All Monsters’ founding member Cary Loren, and works as a companion exhibition to the contemporaneous Sonic Rebellion: Music As Resistance exhibition which looks at the music, art and activism of the Detroit punk and noise art scenes from the 1970s to the present day. Punk House will feature display posters, flyers, zines and records, an interior mural by The Wire’s Savage Pencil and an installation by Detroit based artist James J Millross (aka Jimbo Easter), and more.

Both exhibitions take place at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Detroit. Full information can be found on their website.
