This gathering will amplify the stories, experiences, style and sound of the folks who helped create punk in the Southern Tier, in their own words—and encouraging all visitors to directly engage with the history of punk by sharing flyers, photographs, and recordings and talking about them. We will gather this “D.I.Y. Archive” in the form of an ongoing online archive hosted by the Binghamton University Art Museum.

Our roundtable, an intergenerational conversation with guests spanning the 1980s to the present, will consider what is specifically unique about Bing punk and its various eras. By holding a reunion to discuss Binghamton’s punk rock past, we hope to show how punk offers us new critical perspectives, coping mechanisms for disruption and modes of collective living in this historical moment.

The punk ethos often operates from a position of provocation, so some content in this exhibition may not be appropriate for all audiences. That being said, your kids are welcome!
