If you’re a fan of Woody Allen and live in the Los Angeles area, I strongly suggest heading down to Gallery 1988’s Venice location for their new show “The Humorist.” The show opened last night and runs until February 2. Unlike some shows that are mostly screenprints, what’s great about this one is the amount of diversity by the talented artists. In addition, since Allen has made over forty films, everyone had plenty of choices and I’m glad some of them went with his early work like Sleeper, Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex But Were Afraid to Ask, and Bananas. Like all Gallery 1988 shows, the artwork will be “dropping” later today on their website. Since everything is limited, if you see something you like, don’t wait too long to purchase.
Hit the jump to check out sixty pictures from the show.
Finally, here’s a list of some of the artists that did pieces for the show. I’ll try and pur together a more complete list later today:
Anne Banks, Rezatron, Stanley Chow, Matt Taylor, Anne Banks, Sam Gilbey, Fernando Reza, Anthony Petrie, Graham Erwin, Matt Leunig, Rich Pellegrino, Meghan Stratman, Derek Ead, Jonathan Bergeron, Joey Spiotto, Ridge Rooms, Cuyler Smith, Bob Rissetto, Nick Comparone, Jason Liwag, Miranda Dressler, Rocco Malatesta, Aaron Jasinski, James Gilleard, Matt Owen, Meghan Stratman, Matt Owen, and many more.
