Punks + Poets: An Audio Walk with Gesso

– November 14 2020

In the 1970s, Lower Manhattan was sliding into decay. Within this negative space emerged a new subculture. We’ll call them punks, even if they didn’t at first. Many of the original punk hangouts no longer exist, but their impact on the broader cultural landscape is permanent and profound. Immerse yourself in a new kinetic documentary from our friends at Gesso, tracing the birth of punk in Lower Manhattan.

Join Gesso and WSPC to retrace the steps of poets, photographers, painters and performers who defined punk in this self-guided excursion.

Walking Route: Meet in front of the Washington Square Arch, where the walk begins. You’ll listen and walk at your own pace and end at Tompkins Square Park.

Duration: 80 mins

What to bring:

  • Headphones
  • Mask/ Face Covering
  • The latest Gesso App for iPhone or Android
