New art shows plan to dominate the world ... with food?

Feb 08 // Brian Szabelski    @brianszabelski

Motorbot, Shez solo shows open, plus a special show in Berlin and a postponement

This weekend marks the openings of quite a few shows, from New York state to California and Germany. Each one is slightly different, though ... okay, they're really, really different:

  • At Clutter Gallery (163 Main St., Beacon, N.Y.), Saturday marks the opening for Destination Global Destruction, featuring new customs from Shez. Opening night is from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Eastern, and the show runs through March 2. In the gallery, you'll find a larger version of his Destructo-Tank Dunny on display, along with a Death Spike Mini Munny.
  • Meanwhile, at Dragatomi (2317 J St., Sacramento, Calif.), it's the opening of I Like to Eat Too, featuring Motorbot's custom food Labbits once more. Like Shez's show, opening night is from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Pacific, and the show runs through March 2. Check out a few pictures Motorbot tweeted in the gallery to get an idea of what to expect ... and be sure to eat before going.
  • In Berlin, at Strychnin Gallery (Boxhagener Straße 36), Attention Earth! is opening, featuring a classic sci-fi apocalypse theme to it. Artists taking part include Meredith Dittmar, Seymour, Mimi S., Derek Nobbs, Yoko d'Holbachie, Mark Alfrey, Cliff Wallace, Eugene Plotnikov, Nicolas Le Brogne, Joe Fenton, Carlos Valenzuela, Chris Dean, Serge Gay Jr., Monique Ligons, Tom Lewis, Elmer Presslee, Matt Gordon, Skeleton Herth, and Harry Brack. The gallery features Seymour's piece for the show, a 35-cm-tall resin piece he calls Three's a Crowd at the End of the World.
  • There's also a postponement: Kidrobot New York's event with artist Mike Die has been postponed to a later date due to the snowstorm in New York City this weekend.

Check out the gallery for a few photos of the fliers for the event and some pieces that will be on display!
