Several Parsons Illustration folk–including faculty member Peter Hamlin and alumni from Uglydoll–are in Giant Robot SF’s group show which opens this weekend. Here’s the official press release:
In conjunction with guest curators Mark Todd and Esther Pearl Watson, Giant Robot is proud to host Power Punch.
For this show, artists were given identical 8″ x 8″ panels to work from. As a result, the art itself becomes the focus–and not the material it is created on. The unified presentation will explore both the vocabulary of and connections between today’s working artists.
Artists, who were chosen not only on the merit of their own particular work but also how they relate to one another, will include the following:
APAK!, Drew Beckmeyer, Marc Burckhardt, Chris Buzelli, James Chong, Kevin Christy, Vanessa Davis, Shannon Freshwater, Matt Furie, Frieda Gossett, Peter Hamlin, Ryan Heshka, Andrew Holder, Jason Holley, Patrick Hruby, Rich Jacobs, Hellen Jo, Travis Lampe, Zohar Lazar, LeMerde, Jacob Magraw, Elizabeth Mamont, Mark A. Miller, Brendan Monroe, Christian Northeast, Martin Ontiveros, Mimi Pond, Luke Ramsey, Martha Rich, Johnny Ryan, Brooks Salzwedel, Erik Mark Sandberg, Shark Toof, Keith Shore, Jeremy Tinder, Jesse Tise, Aiyana Udesen, Uglydoll, Jon Vermilyea, Wayne White, Matt Wood, Jaime Zollars.
Giant Robot was born as a Los Angeles-based magazine about Asian, Asian-American, and new hybrid culture in 1994, but has evolved into a full-service pop culture provider with shops and galleries in Los Angeles and San Francisco, as well as an online equivalent.
An opening reception will take place on 6:30 – 10:00 on Saturday, April 2.
