FIDM Museum & Galleries announces RIPPED. Expressions from the Underground

FIDM Museum & Galleries presents RIPPED. Expressions from the Underground, an exhibition on view November 8–December 22.

RIPPED: Expressions from the Underground, explores the art and influence of punk rock on design and culture. Curated by Cesar Padilla, artist, musician, collector, and punk rock enthusiast, RIPPED includes 150 band T-shirts, photographs, posters, and related ephemera from the punk, post-punk and indie rock eras. Based on Padilla’s 2010 book, Ripped: T-shirts from the Underground, the exhibition documents the band T-shirt as a method of communication and self-expression in the pre-Internet era. Seminars, readings, and special events will be held in conjunction with the exhibition.

The FIDM Museum & Galleries Foundation, Inc. provides students, researchers, designers, and the public with resources to examine the roles of historic fashion, accessories, textiles, jewelry, fragrance, and related ephemera in their relationship to society, history, art, and technology. The collections are sustained by standard museum practices for continual acquisition, preservation, and display. Educational, outreach, and volunteer programs support the scholarly interpretation of the collections.
