CRAFT SHOW: Punchclock Collective Showcase

invitation from Punchclock Collective:
bear witness to a rare showcase of the bold passions that propel the Punchclock collective. Punchclock is a transdiciplinary, democratic organization of cultural workers, political activists and trades people operating out of two hives functioning as collective metal and screenprinting studios.

Punchclock's mandates are economic sustainability and artistic direct action.
Punchclock produces aesthetically defiant graphic design, video, poster, sculpture, performance, installation, textile and street art. Punchclock's efforts challenge conventional, isolating and competitive models of professional art careers. Punchclock exists not for wealthy collectors or insular art patrons, but as an essential element to a healthy and dynamic community.

Begun in 2003 by activists Shannon Muegge and Stefan Pilipa, the
abundance of talent that currently inflames the colllective consists of the
following individuals:
  • Rocky Dobey - Metal worker, artist, street installation legend.
  • Simone Schmidt - activist, artist, musician (100 dollars, LSdoubleDcup)
  • Jesjit Gill - print artist
  • Michael Comeau - artist, musician (LSdoubleDcup)
  • Will Munro - artist, DJ, promoter, restauranteur
  • Christopher Cook - carpenter, musician (LSdoubleDcup)
  • Fancy Gordon Zero - carpenter, artist
  • Kids on TV - multimedia collective, dancefloor destroyers.
A sudden and serious diagnosis has spurred a detoxifying process that requires your support. Help Punchclock maintain physical integrity so it may continue to ignite the soul of our community.
