February is Oscars month, a time that reminds us all why we love film so much, so to celebrate our most cherished films Hero Complex Gallery is rolling out the red carpet as they announce their next gallery exhibition…landing in San Francisco on February 15th: “Oscar Legends!” and “Weapon of Choice, Phase 2!”
In San Francisco, Hero Complex is putting on TWO art exhibitions under one roof, with the opening reception landing on Friday, February 15th, from 6-10pm, at the SOMArts Cultural Center.
On one side of the gallery “Oscar Legends” will feature art inspired by some of history’s most groundbreaking Oscar-winning films. Annie Hall will be there, as well as Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. And once they’ve heard about it, The Usual Suspects will probably come from as far as Chinatown and Casablanca to see this exhibit in all it’s Glory. Put down your Pulp Fiction and come witness all this American Beauty for yourself! Longtime film and art-lover, Rotten Atom, has graciously agreed to help curate the show, and we couldn’t be more excited!
On the other side of the gallery, Hero Complex will be presenting “Weapon of Choice, Phase 2!” Their Weapon of Choice show in January proved to be such a huge hit with the fans and the artists that they will be presenting all new art from artists who wanted to take a stab at this sweeping eclectic theme. New subjects will be tackled with great enthusiasm by Godmachine, Nicole Gustafsson, Chris B. Murray, Marie Bergeron, Alex R. Kirzhner, Joey Spiotto and Blunt Graffix, just to name a few. Oh, and Craig Drake just might have a new piece in the show too that you won’t want to miss!
This event is presented at SOMArts through participation in the Affordable Space Program, which provides below-market rental space, production, and publicity assistance to nonprofit organizations. For more information visit our rentals page.
