Following up on the fun and success of last year’s Bad Dads: A Tribute to Wes Anderson (covered), our friends at Spoke Art will continue to marry their love of iconic filmmakers with clever group shows, this time pitting cult heroes Quentin Tarantino and the Coen Brothers against one another in a battle-royale style art throwdown. Opening Thursday, April 7th at Bold Hype Gallery, Quentin vs. Coen will serve as the first installment of their “versus” series, incorporating over 100 artists from the New Contemporary movement. Painters, screen printers and digital artists were invited to reinterpret their favorite scenes, characters and films from the heralded directors, resulting in an eclectic showing of inspirational fine art. The film themed extravaganza will only be on display through Saturday, April 9th, so New Yorkers should get your bathrobes in order and come out to enjoy complimentary “Caucasian” cocktails and slapstick banter in honor of The Dude.
Check out a preview after the jump.
