72 Gallery celebrates the music, art, poetry and fashion that emerged in New York's lower Manhattan in the 1970's which has had such a profound and lasting effect on global popular culture.
The movement, which was to be known as Punk, emerged from the rubble of a city on its knees and was defined by a DIY attitude of pure expression and driven by a lack of anything better to do.
This small group of artist, musicians, writers and vagabonds in an abandoned city created some of the most iconic bands, fashion, art and music of the 20th century. The New York Punk Museum is a long overdue tribute to this movement and the people who were pivotal in it.
72 Gallery celebrates New York as the birthplace of Punk and its impact on global culture.
