Nick Knight's punk Tumblr curation
1 - 7 June 2013

At the start of every month, SHOWstudio gives a hand-selected creative free reign over our Tumblr page for a whole week. Previously, this initiative has seen creatives like Simon Foxton, Rei Nadal and Peter De Potter bring their unique visions to the page. Now, in a unique twist on the tradition, Nick Knight himself will be running the page from 1 to 7 June. Following on from his role as a creative consultant on The Met's PUNK: Chaos to Couture exhibition, Knight will be sharing the images and visuals that have come to define punk for him. Reflecting the complexity of the punk movement and the way in which it clashed opposing ideas and varied aesthetics, each day will see Knight explore a new juxtaposition, from deconstruction v. DIY to childishness v. intellectualism. You can see a sneak preview of Knight's incredible bank of punk imagery - which is currently covering a large percentage of the floor space in our Motcomb Street studio - in the shot above.

Don't miss this unique exploration of punk's inherent contractions, kicking off this Saturday, 1 June!
