The exhibition is curated by James Hoff and Cary Loren. Hungry For Death celebrates the vision of Destroy All Monsters through an exhibition that showcases posters, flyers, photographs, blueprints, drawings, banners, magazines, records, and various other ephemera culled from the collective’s archive. Hungry for Death emphasizes material produced in the ’70s and following the original collective’s reunion in 1996.
