Lost Origins Gallery
This exhibition explores the impact of the band Fugazi, both as musicians and as activists. Large-format data visualizations by Carni Klirs illustrate the elaborate networks of connections the band created, whether touring the world or headlining benefit concerts and protests in their hometown of Washington, D.C. The exhibition also includes never-before-seen visual materials curated by archivist John Davis—flyers, correspondence, photographs, fanzines, and more—that further express the meaning of a band that was about more than its music.
Co-presented by the Folklife Festival and DC: The Social Power of Music
