ICA Miami stays up late on First Friday, the museum’s signature after-hours event series. In honor of Miami Art Week, ICA Miami and CryptoPunks are presenting an exclusive concert by Russian protest punk band and performance artists Pussy Riot.


ABOUT PUSSY RIOT

Feminist performance art collective Pussy Riot made international headlines in 2012 after members were arrested and imprisoned for protesting the re-election of Russian President Vladimir Putin and perceived corruption in the Russian Orthodox church. Initially known for playing lo-fi punk rock and staging impromptu protest performances, the group eventually started touring internationally and expanded their music to incorporate left-field pop, dance, and hip-hop.

ABOUT CRYPTOPUNKS

Yuga Labs is honored to donate Punk #305–originally from the collection of the project’s founders Matt Hall and John Watkinson–to the permanent collection of the ICA Miami.

The CryptoPunks are an important contemporary digital art project that helped lay the foundation for the nascent cultural and technological movement known as Web3.
Combining aspects of generative coding, pixel art, cryptocurrency and social media, the CryptoPunks have become icons of online identity for some of the most talented artists, technologists and thought leaders currently building the future internet.

Punk #305 will be unveiled and installed at ICA Miami on December 2 and will remain on view through the end of the year. Over the next year, Yuga Labs will continue donating CryptoPunks to museums around the world. Learn more on our website at yuga.com/punks-legacy-project.
