In collaboration with Fantastic Fest, we're incredibly excited for this special exhibit & signing celebrating Nicolas Winding Refn's new book, Nicolas Winding Refn: The Act of Seeing. For the first time, Refn - writer, producer and director of the PUSHER trilogy, BRONSON, VALHALLA RISING, DRIVE, ONLY GOD FORGIVES and THE NEON DEMON - will be sharing his unique collection of over 300 rare exploitation-era movie posters bound in a lush new hardcover book.
We'll be hosting an exhibit showcasing 15 of the original posters featured in the book, plus a brand new limited edition poster by artist Jay Shaw inspired by and created specifically for the show. We're thrilled to have Refn on hand to sign copies of the book at the gallery during the opening reception, Friday September 25th from 7 - 10pm, the only US stop on the book tour.
“Being a massive fan of Austin Texas, I consider it a great privilege to join forces with Fantastic Fest and the Mondo Gallery to host the exclusive U.S. debut of Nicolas Winding Refn: The Act of Seeing," said Refn. “I’m excited to show the world this odyssey of rare and exclusive poster art at the festival alongside screenings of some of the films that inspired it.”
The exhibit is free & open to the public (no Fantastic Fest badge required), and will run September 25th - September 27th.
