Don’t let the name “Kung Fu Theater” throw you off. The latest exhibit at the Hero Complex Gallery in Los Angeles, CA isn’t explicitly about martial arts. That subject is in there – big time – but this exhibit features Asian films of all action persuasions. The weapons aren’t just feet and fists, but guns, swords, monsters, robots and more. The show opens Friday November 14 and will be online Saturday November 15. Below, you can check out some of our favorite pieces in the show, as well as the exclusive reveal of Craig Drake‘s Princess Mononoke poster which will be available on bamboo.
Co-curated by Craig Drake and Adam Smasher, Kung Fu Theater opens from 7-10 p.m. at the Hero Complex Gallery, 2020 South Robertson Blvd., Studio D, Los Angeles, CA. It’ll remain open though November 30 from Wednesday through Sunday 11 a.m.-6 p.m.
