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.

The Amsterdam Light Festival has returned, and with it, a startling new set of light-based public works are on display through Jan. 19. “Disturbance lies at the heart of the exhibition of the eighth edition of the Amsterdam Light Festival with its theme 'DISRUPT!'” the event says. “Artists, designers, and architects were challenged to question, test and shake up Amsterdam in alignment with the theme.” Photos by Janus van den Eijnden.
