IN THE YEAR 199X: A 90’S ANIME TRIBUTE SHOW 90+ Artists Celebrating a Decade of Anime
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA — Calling all Anime fans! IN THE YEAR 199X is a celebration of Japanese animation in the 1990’s. The gallery event takes place at Meltdown Comics the weekend of Anime Expo® as more than 90 artists unveil works in celebration of their all-time favorite anime influences.
When: July 3rd from 7 to 11 PM
Where: Meltdown Comics 7522 Sunset Blvd. LA, Calif. 90046
“Kids who grew up in the 90’s know it as the decade where anime found its crossover appeal in the West,” explains curators Zoë Moss & Jacob Strick. “It might have been on Toonami or on a bootleg VHS, but you were watching shows like Dragon Ball Z, Sailor Moon and Cowboy Bebop — not to mention some classic cinema like Ghost in the Shell, Perfect Blue and Princess Mononoke.”
IN THE YEAR 199X was created as a way for artists to pay tribute to the movies and shows that had a seminal impact on their own artistic growth. At the free art opening there will be a live DJ set by Tita Mosura, free food and drinks and an interactive photobooth.
“Whether you prefer dubs or subs – or Digimon to Pokémon – prepare yourself for the most animetastic tribute to 90’s Japanese cartoons!”
ABOUT THE CURATORS: Artists Zoë Moss & Jacob Strick have been collaborating for more than 10 years on everything from graphic novels to animated shorts. Their comedy gag webcomic Pizza Day Comics updates weekly (http://www.pizzadaycomics.com).
