The other night Alex Pardee gave his audience on Twitter (follow him - @alexpardee) a bit of a surprise, which was our first viewing of what his upcoming G1988: LA solo show is shaping up to be. And this was it -
"Hiding From The Normals" will be Alex's 1st solo show here at Gallery1988: LA (follow us on twitter - @jensenclan88) on October 6th and it is shaping up to be our biggest event of 2009. The Halloween themed show has tons of surprises in store (some include original music being produced by your favorite underground rappers and what is going to be, his words, "the biggest and most epic show of his career").
And for the opening reception on October 6th, not only will we be celebrating Alex's new body of work, we'll be celebrating Halloween a bit early, as everyone is encouraged to dress up in costume and be as scary as possible (you may even get a prize if Alex digs your threads). Cause the same night, next door at Golden Apple Comics, we'll be sponsoring the DVD/Blu-Ray release of "Trick R Treat," an INCREDIBLY scary movie from director Michael Dougherty finally seeing the light of day (how this movie got the shaft for marketing/distribution I have NO IDEA, and neither do most movie sites)! Michael, cast and crew will signing DVDs and Blu-Rays. And after you see the trailer below, I PROMISE you'll want to know more.
AND, Alex is going to have a nice little surprise to tie into the movie, cause "Trick R Treat" will be screened in our back lot that night as well. It's all pretty creepy. And awesome.
Mark your calendars now, and get your costumes ready. It's art's Halloween party with Alex Pardee and you are invited.
