Smithsonian Folklife Festival & Lost Origin Productions present an exhibition exploring 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 & protests in their hometown of Washington, D.C. The exhibition also includes never before seen visual materials curated by archivist John Davis—fliers, correspondence, photographs, fanzines, and more—that further express the meaning of a band that was about more than its music.

Co-presented by the Smithsonian Folklife Festival and DC: The Social Power of Music
