A Science Fiction Inspired Art Exhibit
Admission: Free to the public
After a recent, midnight screening of Alien, local artist Sloane Leong contacted a bunch of other artists to create this Sci-Fi art exhibit. Drawing inspiration from everything Sci-Fi including (but not limited to) the films Alien/Aliens and their masterful conceptual artists Moebius, Syd Mead, Ron Cobb, Chris Foss and Giger, artists were invited to push the boundaries on their visions of the future. Sci-Fi is a broad genre and kind of hard to nail down but here are a few subjects that artists will explore: space, dystopias, telepathy, androids, robots, aliens, foreign planets, space colonies, synthetic humans or beings, futuretech, cyberpunk, biopunk, interdimensional travel, teleportation.
Leong has curated an amazing lineup of artists, including Brandon Graham, Kris Mukai, Jen Lee, Andrew White, Roxie Vizcarra, Joanna Krotka, Giannis Milonogiannis, Kelly K, Sam Beck, Adrien Dacquel, Jeremy Sorese, James Stokoe, Lauren Albert, Arlin Ortiz, Felix Kramer, and Maritsa Patrinos, that will be displaying original art and also digital prints for sale. She went even further and contacted a bunch of writers, Sean Witzke, Magen Toole, Melissa Dominic, Valerie Valdez, Stanley Lieber to do some sci-fi fiction that will be published as a zine for the show.
This exhibit will remain on display at Floating World until the end of July.
