The Vader Project 2010

Das Vader Project ist eine bereits seit vier Jahren durch die Welt tourende Ausstellung mit 100 von Künstlern geremixten Vader-Helmen (und ich hatte das Vader Project hier natürlich bereits mehrfach). Das Kunstprojekt wird in diesem Sommer beendet, es wird eine Ausstellung in Los Angeles stattfinden (und ich bin zufällig tatsächlich genau zur Vernissage in der Stadt und werde garantiert mindestens einmal vorbeischauen), danach werden die Exponate versteigert.

Den Katalog zur Auktion habe ich schon vor ein paar Tagen geordert, hier ein paar Bilder daraus, hier zwei Flickr-Sets zur Ausstellung 2007, Snip von Gamefreaks:

This summer, The Vader Project launches the final chapter of its four-year art odyssey. The iconic collection features 100 Darth Vader Helmets re-imagined by today’s most notable artists. Completing its epic world tour, The Vader Project returns to Los Angeles in June for a special ten-day exhibition in Hollywood as a preview to the upcoming Freeman’s Auction in Philadelphia.

The Los Angeles Preview Exhibition is free to the public with an opening reception on June 11 from 6-10pm. On June 12, the space will present a catalog signing event with over 20 participating artists in attendance beginning at 2pm on June 12. The Los Angeles Preview Exhibition will be open June 12-20 daily from Noon to 6pm.

In July, The Vader Project travels to Freeman’s Auctioneers and Appraisers in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania for the final opportunity to view the helmets in person before they are sold at auction. “The result is astounding” said Simeon Lipman, Pop Culture Specialist at Freeman’s. “The sale will give members of the public the chance to purchase unique artworks made from these iconic symbols of the movie industry by a number of well known artists including Shag, Marc Ecko, Tim Biskup, Frank Kozik and many more.”
