GIANT ROBOT BIENNALE 3 OPENING PARTY

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 6-10PM

JAPANESE AMERICAN NATIONAL MUSEUM

FREE ADMISSION!

LIVE MUSIC BY: MONEY MARK (7:30PM)

The Japanese American National Museum presents Giant Robot Biennale 3, its third show in conjunction with Eric Nakamura, owner of Asian American pop culture juggernaut Giant Robot. The expansive show features a gallery of eight emerging artists along with a customized vinyl figure collection.

Following two previous successful exhibitions at the National Museum, the Biennale continues to push the envelope with a creative, fresh, and uniquely interactive experience. This year’s exhibition highlights the works of Rob Sato, Deth P. Sun, Ako Castuera, Eishi Takaoka, Saelee Oh, Sean Chao, Albert Reyes, and Zach Gage, all with long ties to Giant Robot. Each artist brings their original style, from whimsical wall paintings and creatures in clay worlds, to a life-size “haunted” maze especially built for this Biennale. Learn more about the artists here.

Using Uglydoll creator David Horvath figures, Nakamura curated Project Remix, a custom vinyl show with over 80 artists from seven countries—including the rare combination of both established customizers and fine artists. The roster of artists for the project (UPDATED):

Here’s a video to tell you about the exhibition. I’m glad I didn’t ramble too much. It’s nicely done and it’ll show in the theater during the duration of the exhibition. Thanks to the crew at JANM who worked on this and make plans to come Saturday 6-10pm on September 22 at JANM. >>
