Quentin vs Coen: an art show tribute to the films of Tarantino and the Coen Brothers

Opening night reception - July 5th (6pm - 10pm) - On view until July 26th

Spoke Art is proud to present: Quentin vs. Coen - An art show tribute to the films of Tarantino and the Coen Brothers. Over 60 artists were invited to reinterpret their favorite scenes, characters and films from the prolific directors, resulting in an eclectic showing of inspirational fine art. Showcasing a plethora of original works from painting and sculpture to limited edition screen prints and digital works, Quentin vs Coen demonstrates a wide range of mediums and practices.

Playing upon the already highly stylized vision of these directors, Quentin vs Coen pays homage and re-imagines these momentous post-modern genre makers. Although Tarantino and the Coen brothers differ heavily in their directorial styles, artistically they both have an aptitude for overlapping themes. Both gravitate towards potent, film-defining soundtracks, both fabricate their own versions of neo-noir dark humor. Their penchant for ample brutal violence and bizarre story lines compliment their overarching topics of American culture, revenge and fate as well as classic hollywood narratives.

For this exhibition, no guidelines on subject matter or content were given to the artists. This artistic liberty allows for a boundless selection of personal depictions and interpretations. Each artist was allowed to choose their favorite character, scene or location from whatever movie they liked. Quentin vs Coen therefore offers an eclectic selection of works both diverse in style as well as subject.

Quentin vs Coen will debut on Saturday, July 5th, from 6pm - 10pm. There is no cover charge, complimentary beverages will be served and some artists will be in attendance. The exhibition will be on view until July 26th.

Online sales begin Tuesday, July 8th via the Spoke Art website.
