If you’re sticking around the Bay this holiday weekend, here’s a cool, cinematically epic thing for you to do on your Saturday. The folks over at Spoke Gallery in San Francisco have organized an art show tribute with more than 60 artists who have made paintings, sculptures, screen prints and digital works, all in reverence to the greatest filmmakers of our generation, Quentin Tarantino and the Coen Brothers.
From the Gallery:
Although Tarantino and the Coen brothers differ heavily in their directorial styles, artistically they both have an aptitude for overlapping themes. Both gravitate towards potent, film-defining soundtracks, both fabricate their own versions of neo-noir dark humor. Their penchant for ample brutal violence and bizarre story lines compliment their overarching topics of American culture, revenge and fate as well as classic hollywood narratives.
There were no guidelines as to what the artists were or were not allowed to create, so you can bet there will be some pretty twisted selections (which, by the way, is a very Tarantino take on art anyway).
The exhibit will premiere on Saturday, July 5 from 6-10 pm for free with complimentary beverages, and will run until July 26.
