Giant Robot is proud to host Nendo Pro Wrestling – clay sculptures by Yukinori Dehara. Wrestling culture has been popular throughout contemporary Japanese popular culture. Alongside of Mexico and the US, the wrestling scene has continued alongside and overlapping with Sentai (Power Rangers) shows. Superheroes have traversed in each others genres. We’ll be sure to feature clay sculptures and more from Yukinori Dehara! As with his previous exhibitions, Dehara’s work is often containing deep ideologies of our culture presented through his colorful characters.
Get your fix of both art and politics at 281_Anti-Nuke’s exhibition at the Pink Cow bar in Roppongi, Japan. Tourists and Tokyoites may have seen 281′s work conspicuously stickered on public property throughout the city.
The Satellite has become a backup to The Echo in recent years, so I was stoked to see two rad bills there in the same week. Gotta love being able to walk to shows, especially when it’s a friend’s band.
