Thursday Oct 1 - Saturday Oct 31 2009
Von Doom is a celebration of Heavy Metal inspired art with a focus on image-makers from the current metal scene. This exhibition will bring together a variety of artists hailing from places as far as the U.K. and Australia.
The collection in the front room gallery will focus on drawings and prints in various degrees of brutality, unholiness, and gore. Much of the art on display can be found again as album art, tour-posters and t-shirts. The back room will harbor an installation conceived and created by two San Francisco local metal-heads.
Inspired by San Francisco's own "Hell-O-Ween" Black Metal festival, this show is an ode to the music that spawns cross-eyed goat heads, summons the apocalypse, and paints itself in corps paint. Nothing is sacred - all is doom.
