Inspired by and reflecting PUNK Culture, artist Lucy McKenzie’s work was hosted at TATE Liverpool. ON RECORD presented its creative response to Lucy’s work with GRIME > PUNK – a 1 day event that focused on how Grime is Punk for this new generation.
The event included:
- A discussion on how GRIME developed as the biggest music culture movement since PUNK and how it has arguably had a bigger influence. Participants included journalist Hyperfrank, artists Manga Saint Hilare & Koj, DJ G33 and was hosted by artist and culture leader SAS Killa. Listen in to what they had to say below.
- An art installation which included local artist Sumuyya providing an artistic response to Lucy’s work – creating a modern day interpretation in her own style and in a Grime influenced voice. In addition, local photographer Anthony Wilde created a collection of portraits that reflect the ‘GRIME’ subculture within Liverpool. Both were on display in the gallery.
- Designer, Artist and LJMU BA Fashion Programme leader, Andrew Ibi led a workshop resulting in the creation of modern day outfits that mix Grime and Punk fashion into something that bridges both subcultures.
- The event ended with performances by DJ G33, local Grime artists Koj and P3LZ and special guests Roll Deep’s Manga Saint Hilare and Birmingham’s Dapz on the Map.
- Afterwards, there was a special Late at Tate, featuring sets by DJ 2Kind and G33.
