Preview: Project Remix for Giant Robot Biennale 3 (9.22)
On Monday, I stopped by the Japanese American National Museum to check out the ongoing setup for the Giant Robot Biennale 3 show which opens on Saturday (9.22). The large four-month exhibition features spotlights on several artists as well as the Project Remix group show featuring custom Ugly Doll vinyls + GR’s Big Boss Robot mini from 85 artists.
Here’s a look at just some of the amazing customs as they were being unpacked for display at the museum. By the looks of it, Giant Robot has accomplished what founder Eric Nakamura intended – a museum exhibition showcasing the work of the very best toy customizers for all to enjoy. From what I saw on Monday, I was really impressed with the hand-painted perfection of 64 colors, Brent Nolasco’s wildly sculpted ‘The Specialists’, Cris Rose’s robotic fliers, Scott Tolleson’s odd couple, Reactor-88’s totem-styled flatwoods monster and BBR, Nathan Ota’s beautifully painted pieces which are an excellent translation of his enchanted forest paintings, kaNO’s retro old school 80’s customs, JLed’s ravenous Princess BBQ, and Mark Nagata’s humorous set piece, to name just a few ;-)
If you’re in the LA area, definitely block out sometime on Saturday evening (9.22) to check out the opening of the Giant Robot Biennale 3. Project Remix alone is a must-see exhibit. In addition, you’ll be able to see the excellent work of Rob Sato, Ako Castuera, Deth P. Sun, Sean Chao, Eishi Takaoka, Salee Oh, Albert Reyes and Zach Gage.
