After a successful opening of Punk Povera at WUHO Gallery on Saturday, January 16, 2016, the show is starting to get the attention of the press and the arts world.
The Los Angeles Times has listed Punk Povera in their Datebook where L.A. Times culture editor Carolina A. Miranda recommends current arts and culture events in the city.
Punk Povera is also announced in the news section on the SOMA website. SOMA is an organization dedicated to cultural exchange and arts pedagogy that was founded in Mexico City in November 2009.
Punk Povera is a group exhibition situating recent work in painting, drawing, sculpture and video from Los Angeles and Mexico City in relation to two histories: Arte Povera, the Italian art movement of the late 1960s that employed radical processes using simple materials; and punk rock music, fashion and art from the UK and the US in the 1970s. These were urban art forms that eschewed the excesses of their respective mainstream contemporaries in order to challenge, disrupt, and defy constraints, both social and artistic, and they serve as a conceptual foundation and opening gambit here.
