“Adriean Koleric is putting together an exhibition called Herd: rat-ATAT-touille, based on a group of refurbished AT-AT toys from 1981. The herd also stars in related graphic depictions. The artist wants to bring out how pop culture influences art and design today, as he was more inclined to look at these pieces as art rather than mass-produced consumer objects when he was growing up. The exhibition is a salute to the nameless, faceless product designers who unknowingly inspired many artists to come.”
So we just received the Christie‘s catalog for the New York Pop Culture Punk Rock Auction. Its a great catalog, and I wish I never hung all those flyers in my locker. The Auction features work ranging from Kaws, to Metallica’s Master of Puppets orginal art, to Black Flag flyers, and Jim Morrison Poetry. So much all for sale…. more after the jump. Did I mention how cool the catalog is? The Auction starts November 24th.

Copy and past post follows…..
Radio Silence documents the ignored space between the Ramones and Nirvana through the words and images of the pre-Internet era where this community built on do-it-yourself ethics thrived. Authors Nathan Nedorostek and Anthony Pappalardo have cataloged private collections of unseen images, personal letters, original artwork, and various ephemera from the hardcore scene circa 1978-1993. Unseen photos lay next to hand-made t-shirts and original artwork brought to life by the words of their creators and fans. Radio Silence includes over 500 images of unseen photographs, illustrations, rare records, t-shirts, and fanzines presented in a manner that abandons the aesthetic clichés normally employed to depict the genre and lets the subject matter speak for itself. Contributions by Jeff Nelson, Dave Smalley, Walter Schreifels, Cynthia Connolly, Pat Dubar, Gus Peña, Rusty Moore, and Gavin Ogelsby with an essay by Mark Owens.
