Classic Cars West is proud to announce it's next exhibition: Terminal Punk 

Highlighting two generations of marginal art and publishing in the Bay Area. V. Vale, Marian Wallace and Krusty Wheatfield’s explorations of the teeming underbelly of modern culture- making collectively span more than 40 years. For the month of January and February, Classic Cars West Gallery will be transformed into a living archive of alternative media.

The installation will feature never-before-seen photographs and original zine spreads by Vale, industrial music, film and prints by Wallace, alongside prints and bio-comics by Krusty Wheatfield. Punk ephemera and other underground artifacts from the RE/Search collection will also be on display for the counterculture connoisseur and the newly woke alike.

For the opening night on January 5th, musical performances will also enliven the space. Local Oakland bands UNITY, Marbled Eye, and Crush will perform, along with Minneapolis drag performer Gay Henry and Portland’s Floating Room, proving that punk/post-punk/whatever is alive and well and still lots of good fun.
   



     

About the Artists: V. Vale is well-known for his punk zine “Search and Destroy”, but has since built a reputation as a homegrown alt- historian through his publishing of RE/Search publications. Marian Wallace, a member of the American Surrealists, has long been a vanguard of the experimental film and industrial music scene in San Francisco, working with Bruce Conner and the New Nothing Film Collective. Krusty Wheatfield, a former RE/Search intern, is a cartoonist and co-founder of the Bay Area zine Come Find Out; her most recent project is an adaptation of interviews with Vale and Wallace into graphic narrative form.
