Get a glimpse of Yoshitomo Nara's recent A to Z show in this clip from the documentary film "Traveling with Yoshitomo Nara"This is one of special videos that the director Koji Sakabe edited for iPod. Seeing Nara's work in person is a unique experience, with little smokinggirls larger than thier onlookers, Nara's huge oversized hand-sewn canvas patch work "plates," tiny kinder-core crayon drawings, and his catalogued music ephemera.Here are a few other Nara films to check out, including last year's show at the Hague, and Nara infused imagery in a Shonen Knife videos "Daydream Believer" and the ridiculous "Banana Chips."
The Internet has changed the art world immensely, and Giant Robot has been there to witness and evolve alongside it. Conceived as a humble, photocopied zine focused on Asian American arts and culture in 1994, Giant Robot now exists as an unclassifiable entity. It was published as a magazine for 16 years and later manifested in the physical realm as an art gallery and shop, as well as a website. To celebrate its 20 years, Giant Robot 2 in LA will debut "Giant Robot Presents: 20 Years Art x Mags," an extensive group show featuring many established and emerging talents. Among the line-up are Yoshitomo Nara, Takashi Murakami, Ryan McGinness, Geoff McFetridge, Yoskay Yamamoto, Jeff Soto, James Jean and a great number of other artists. "#GR20Years," as the show is nicknamed, opens March 15, 5 - 10 pm, and will be on view through April 2.
