Quay Arts would like to invite you along to our end of exhibition closing party for the current exhibition PUNK!

Music from X-DIRECTORY will be playing live in the Café, banging out the greatest hits of the 70's. From The Clash, Ramones, Sex Pistols, Damned, Dead Kennedys, Undertones & Buzzcocks.

Also on the bill will be Adam Gaterell and Arnold P Fetid performing the very best in Punk Poetry in the West Gallery.

Dress to impress – wear your best punk clobber!

The exhibition ‘PUNK’ celebrates punks, past and present on the Island and further afield, in the form of visual art, graphic design, graffiti, music. This in-house curated show aims to explore the traditional visual art of punk culture from the mid-1970s to now, and its impact on the Isle of Wight through memorabilia such as posters, badges, ticket stubs, vinyl records, as well as show artworks by contemporary artists that retain a bit of punk ethos in their work today. Much of the work on display is kindly loaned by punk enthusiasts and ex-punk band members from the Isle of Wight.
