From this week's art review:
This weekend, Third Man Records is hosting Kerr in its first-ever gallery exhibition. The fact that TMR chose Kerr — a Texan who paints portraits of lesser-known blues artists and civil rights activists — to be its inaugural artist isn't as surprising at it might seem. Kerr was a founding member of seminal punk bands The Big Boys and Poison 13, as well as Bad Mutha Goose, Lord High Fixers and The Monkeywrench. Kerr's punk sensibilities cross over into his art in ways that aren't completely obvious — no anarchy symbols or safety-pinned canvases here — but once it's grabbed you, you're already halfway down a rabbit hole of obscure influencers and the manic, collaborative creativity punk rock espoused.
Read the full story, and see pictures from the installation after the jump. Come to Sunday's Poetry Sucks! at Third Man to meet Kerr, listen to some people read their poetry, and see free performances by Kerr, Holly Golightly and more.
