“Pump Me Up: D.C. Subculture of the 1980s” February 23- April 7, 2013

“Pump Me Up: D.C. Subculture of the 1980s” is the first exhibition to explore the thriving underground of Washington, D.C., during the 1980s, giving visual form to the raucous energy of graffiti, Go-Go music, and a world-renowned punk and hardcore scene.

“Pump Me Up” is curated by Roger Gastman for the Corcoran Gallery of Art.

“MUMBO SAUCE” is a response show to the exhibition I am curating at the Corcoran Gallery of Art, “PUMP ME UP – D.C.subculture of the 1980s”. Your work and persona fit the theme of “PUMP ME UP” as an artist creating culture without a mold; people who were making stuff just for the fuck of it because it was fun, and it was what they wanted to do. The theme of “MUMBO SAUCE” is a survey of artists who have, or once had, deep roots in Washington, D.C. The exhibition will be an exploration and commentary on how the environment has influenced your work.”
