The opening reception of “Scion Presents: To The Masses” is curated by Giant Robot Magazine publisher/co-editor and owner, Eric Nakamura. The exhibition opens tomorrow tonight at 7 p.m. and is on view through Sept. 8 at the Scion Installation LA Gallery in Culver City, Calif. Artists from the U.S. include Caroline Hwang, Ben Woodward, Feric, Dan-ah Kim and Brian Ralph. From Japan: Eishi Takaoka and Kohei Yamashita. From Spain: Olaf Ladousse. Together this diverse group of artists delves into different mediums (including silk-screen printing, carved wood and pen-and-ink drawings) and styles. The new Scion Installation Gallery holds art shows and art-related events for cutting-edge artists from across the globe. Giant Robot Magazine began in 1994 as a small zine and has grown into a full-fledged bi-monthly magazine available at most stores and newsstands in the U.S. Giant Robot opened its first store in 2001 and formulated a combination of pop-culture goods, ranging from Japanese import toys, graphic design and art books, and monthly art exhibitions. Giant Robot has since opened stores and galleries in San Francisco and NYC and also operates a restaurant called gr/eats in West Los Angeles.
