This season, the galleries are filled with light shows, monster rock and roll, and naked ladies
"HUNGRY FOR DEATH: DESTROY ALL MONSTERS" | Boston University Art Gallery | November 15–December 22
Destroy All Monsters, a legendary '70s Michigan art gang and noise-rock band, was founded by Mike Kelley, Cary Loren, Niagara, and Jim Shaw at a house party in 1973. They thumbed their noses at pretentious radio rock and took inspiration from monster movies, psychedelia, comic books, and thrift store junk. Kelley and Shaw became LA art stars, but this collection of vintage fliers, banners, and 'zines recalls the group that played its first gig at a comic-book convention — from which they were asked to leave after 10 minutes of (in Kelley's words) their "horrid strains."
