Celebrate Fall with the Opening of Sonic Rebellion and Punk House at MOCAD

The MOCAD is one of Detroit's biggest best features. The 22,000-square-foot building temporarily hosts all sorts of amazing galleries before letting them move on. It does not collect art like a museum, instead, its goal is to let people enjoy something before it moves on in the world. Their galleries are unique, well thought out, and interesting.

This Friday, September 8th The Museum of Contemporary Art will open its latest exhibit called Sonic Rebellion: Music as Resistance. The gallery will focus on, "the intersection of art, music and politics, protests and the role of music as a catalyst for social change and protest.” The exhibit was curated by Cary Loren and it will feature a companion show called Punk House that will focus on the punk rock music as a resistance. The exhibit will also feature work from James J. Millross a.k.a. Jimbo Easter and a live performance by Lenny and Lawrence Burden, two well known Detroit producers and the creators of 430 West/Direct Beat Records. There will also be a question and answer session with Jens Hoffmann and MOCAD’s Susanne Feld Hilberry, Senior Curator at Large.

The gallery will host a members only preview at 6 p.m. this Friday with a regular opening for the riff raff at 7 p.m. Jens will speak at 7 p.m., there will be a punk house performance at 8 p.m. and Octane One will perform at 10 p.m. Admission is free before 9 p.m. and $15 after 9 ($10 for members).
