Scion Rooms preview

I stopped by Scion's Rooms exhibit this afternoon. Several of the rooms were still half done at best, but here's a few photos:

Adam Wallacavage's room is designed to look like a guest room in his own house, and felt like a trip to the Black Lodge:








Justin Van Hoy's room features NBA memorabilia that'll be familiar to any guy growing up in the 80's. And check out that stunningly atrocious likeness of Karl Malone:







Chris Stain's room was only partially completed, but will feature graffiti and a New York skyline:








I'm pretty sure the couch in Dueling VHS' room was the one my folks had when I was a baby.








Rocky Grimes is a public school teacher and made a typical classroom. But isn't it time for commentary that's a little fresher than comparing Bush to Hitler?






Bill Daniel's room tells the tale of a burnt out skateboarding punk fan, who frequents a bar serving only energy drinks. But I was more intrigued by his ongoing project documenting long-abandoned oil towns being reclaimed by nature.







And finally, Kime Buzelli's room tried to capture the feel of a slumber party filled with tarot cards and Ouija Boards:




The show opens tomorrow in Los Angeles. Phuong-Cac Nguyen posted a few more photos of the show at Cool Hunting.

  1. Remember when Startling Lineup figures first came out? Everyone thought they were the coolest things ever. Then came Todd McFarlane......

    Those rooms are all amazing, what a great idea for an art show.

  2. I saw the figure first, and had no idea who it was until I saw the name.
