The centerpiece of the event features Kramer Assault 211FR guitars as the canvas upon which 11 celebrated artists will embellish with their own artistic modifications. They have been encouraged to transform their instrument in any way they wish, the result of which will be a collection that is visually fresh. The line-up of artists includes art superstars such as Michael Lau, Nakanari, Pete Fowler, Christian Jacobs (Yo Gabba Gabba), 123Klan, Matt Waldman (Nooka), Camilla d’Errico, Ashley Wood, Long Vo, Lebo, and Oscar-winning actor/artist Jeff Bridges. This medley of artistic styles and influences brings together artists to celebrate the variety of musical and visual artistry that exists today.
Since the show will take much of its essence from the designer toy subculture, the show creators have also partnered with Kidrobot to create a custom 20-inch Dunny exhibit unlike any other. Each one of the five talented artists involved with designer toys (Jure Gavran, Dave “Outtamymind” Quiles, Tracy Tubera, kaNO, and Rotobox Vinyl Anatomica) will design a particular player of a fictional band, so that when they are brought together, a new “Dunny Superband” will be established on a stage! Kidrobot, along with the show creators and other designer toy sponsors will also showcase innovative toys and sculptures in an effort to share this contemporary subculture with the art-conscious visitors. This exhibition of vinyl toys will feature pieces and support from Kuso Vinyl, myplasticheart, SHON, Jure Gavran, Fury Animals, 123Klan, MaiHiro, and Dragatomi.
