Giant Robot Biennale 3 opens this weekend, and JANM has launched an special exhibition site which includes video, artist bios, related public programs, audio tour, and more. Learn more about GRB3 in this interview with curator Eric Nakamura.
On September 22, the Japanese American National Museum presents Giant Robot Biennale 3, its third show in conjunction with Eric Nakamura, owner of Giant Robot. This year’s exhibition highlights the works of eight artists who bring unique styles ranging from whimsical wall paintings and creatures in clay worlds, to a life-size “haunted” maze built especially for this show. I attended both of the previous Giant Robot Biennales, so trust me when I say that you don’t want to miss this!
Using figures designed by Uglydoll creator David Horvath, 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.
Special additions to the exhibition include an original piece from Japanese painter Masakatsu Sashie as well as arcade machines running Jeni Yang and Beau Blyth’s new indie video game, Catburger. Giant Robot Biennale 3 will run from September 23, 2012 – January 20, 2013. Hope to see you at the opening party on September 22!
