Whether you’re a human, animal, alien, cartoon, hobbit, robot or something else, one thing links almost every single character in pop culture: food. We all need something to keep us going, give us energy and maybe be the object of a joke. Some of these pop culture food items can even be as popular as the characters themselves, like the Wonka chocolate Bar, pink Simpsons donut or Pac Man cherries. Fictional Food is everywhere, and it is also the name and subject of Joshua Budich‘s solo exhibit opening Friday May 22 at Gallery 1988 West in Los Angeles, CA.
It’ll consist of 36 small screenprints of fictional food from stories such as Lost, The Simpsons, The Legend of Zelda, and Toy Story, as well as six larger pieces. Below, check out just a hint of the show as well as an exclusive Star Wars piece you’ll only find previewed here on /Film. Read More »

One of my biggest pet peeves is when someone takes a photo in terrible light. It’s dark, everything is quiet and then huge flash goes off. I think ” You just ruined that.”
Most people are blissfully ignorant to the importance of light in art, not just in photography, but anything visual. Which, I assume, is one of the reasons why artist Raid 71 is calling his latest solo show Illuminate. The pop culture art show features works from films like Blade Runner, Tron, The City of Lost Children, Akira, Mean Streets, Dark City, Midnight Cowboy, The Fisher King, Taxi Driver and more that focus on light, and light juxtaposed with architecture, in cinema. The show opens May 15 at the Bottleneck Gallery in Brooklyn, NY and below you can see a bunch of art from the show. Read More »

Slowly but surely, the world will remember Avatar. It’s kind of hard to believe that a film that grossed over $2 billion worldwide needs to be reintroduced to audiences but by the time the second film comes out in December 2017, eight years will have passed between movies. And with three sequels on the way, as well as a permanent Disney theme park, many people have lots of money riding on James Cameron‘s world of Pandora.
Now, it seems like one of the first ways people will be re-introduced to Avatar is a traveling exhibition that will allow fans to literally walk around Pandora, interacting with the animals and plant life that made the film so unique and evocative.
Below, read the full press release on the Avatar exhibition. Read More »
