Giant Robot Biennale 4 Press


LA Weekly

Since its former life as a magazine and in its current existence as an art gallery and store, Giant Robot has a reputation for championing up-and-coming artistic talents, many of whom have gone on to acclaimed careers. Now the fourth edition of the Giant Robot Biennale returns to the Japanese American National Museum, bringing together some of the best known artists associated with the brand. James Jean's sketchbooks will be on display. Edwin Ushiro will have a re-creation of his own studio as part of the exhibition. Katsuya Terada is providing live art and the husband-wife duo kozyndan is creating a mural in the museum. Plus there will be works from the likes of Luke Chueh, Audrey Kawasaki and Yoskay Yamamoto. The show runs through Jan. 24, but hit up the opening party to catch a live set from Daedalus and more festivities. Japanese American National Museum, 100 N. Central Ave., Little Tokyo; Sat., Oct. 10, 7-10 p.m., through Jan. 24; free. (213) 625-0414, janm.org. —Liz Ohanesian

Many people complain about something lacking from their lives, but few actually do anything about it.
Eric Nakamura is different. He has not only filled that gap, he has created a new movement.

Many people complain about something lacking from their lives, but few actually do anything about it.
Eric Nakamura is different. He has not only filled that gap, he has created a new movement.
Nakamura is the creator of Giant Robot, now a store with a sister gallery in Los Angeles, which spurred an ever-growing interest in Asia and Asian American pop culture. He is also the curator of the exhibit, “Giant Robot Biennale 4,” set to open Oct. 11 at the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles.
