New Art Projects is delighted to present Punish the Streets, an exhibition that celebrates a decade of vFd in Dalston and highlights the amazing influences that flow between club culture, art and fashion. The title ‘Punish the Streets’ refers to transgressive bodies and cultures that challenge norms. It describes a process that vFd, in one way or another has inspired, nurtured and cultivated in the last 10 years. vFd is a collective, a plot, a movement, a subject and a culture.
Club culture creates its own necessities. It is a free and perpetually drifting space, which is constantly changing. The exhibition will bring together a number of people who have long been at the centre of vFd’s history, some who have passed through and others who continue to shape it.
The participating artists have created new works for vFd10 that form an exciting and compelling exhibition including painting, drawing and installation.‘Punish the Street’ is also a celebration of vFd’s notorious and glorious times and also features film footage, music videos and original artwork from the club’s extensive archive. In this way it pieces together the way designers, artists, DJs, poets and performers have imagined vFd’s possibilities in the past and present.
