EVENT PRESS CONTINUED: "The exhibition also features Giant Robot magazines, ephemera, vinyl toys, custom vending machines, and the original Giant Robot Scion XB inspired by Nintendo's Famicom gaming console, designed by Eric Nakamura and fabricated by Len Higa. The car-turned-interactive gaming station boasts built-in sound and projectors, ennabling visitors to use the car to play the original game Return of the Quack by Chevy Ray Johnston with graphics by Matt Furie.
Over the past 20 years, the Giant Robot brand has expanded to include retail stores and galleries in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York, a restaurant, museum and gallery exhibitions, and a popular website. It has also become an important outlet for a generation of emerging artists, several of whom have achieved mainstream success—such as Adrian Tomine, whose work has graced many New Yorker covers, and James Jean, whose is best known for his work for Prada, ESPN, and Atlantic Records.
SuperAwesome connects to OMCA’s other spring exhibition Vinyl: The Sound and Culture of Records through programs and in-gallery experiences celebrating how a range of communities comes together to create shared popular culture.
SuperAwesome: Art and Giant Robot is made possible in part by generous support from Deluxe Corporation Foundation."

Get caught up with the timeline chronicling the 25 defining moments of the Mutant Race -from 1962 to 2018 = a viral campaign / promotional event for the "X-Men: Days of Future Past" feature film. I am so enamored with this viral, it has since been blogged across my Movie fan-blogs (XMENonFILM / #PopcornX).
Besides the visuals (which include dodgy photoshopping in some instances OMG), the "footnotes" give a historical context to the plight of the mutants in the FOX Universe, and for the movie itself. And while I am unsure if all these would physically factor into the actual movie itself - or maybe as an opening montage? - this is a swell opportunity to get up to speed.
Visit www.25moments.com for stills (mirrored unto my dedicated PopcornX FB album), and enjoy the filmlet above. And "Colossus Baby" FTW!
