EUROPUNK AT THE CITE DE LA MUSIQUE
Opening tomorrow at the Cité de la Musique is this season devoted to the artistic revolution – chaotic, radical, provocative – that was punk. Concerned less with the movement’s musical output – though there’s a couple of gigs too, see below – the exhibition examines the output of images and objects. In total, more than 450 objects sourced from private and public collections and dating from the years 1976 and 1980 are on display: clothes, fanzines, posters, flyers, drawings and collages, album covers, films, etc., as well as multiple audio and video recordings, testifying to punk’s vitality and creative freedom and its fidelity to the still radical motto of ‘Do it yourself!’ And two pioneering UK punk/ post-punk bands will perform Public Image Ltd and the Buzzcocks; get your tickets here.
Until 19 Jan. Tue-Fri, noon-6pm; Sat, 10am-6pm. Closed Mon. 9€.
