During SXSW 2020 attendees will get the opportunity to experience the ゴジラ| GODZILLA: A POSTER SHOW opening Friday, March 13, 2020, in Austin, Texas. After the release of their apparel capsule to date in 2019, Mondo continues its unprecedented relationship with Toho International. This unique poster show will tackle the Shōwa, Heisei and Reiwa eras of the Godzilla film catalog with 24 posters by 11 artists, including Godzilla fanatic, Tom Whalen’s “TERROR OF MECHAGODZILLA” poster and Attack Peter, an artist who specializes in beautifully handcrafted linocut artwork printed on Lokta paper.
Mondo’s Creative Director of Toys and Collectibles, Brock Otterbacher: “He’s been many things over his many years – a symbol of the horrors of war, nature’s wrath, a hero, a villain, and even the collection of angry souls taking revenge on the living. One thing he’s always been, however, is beloved across many generations of fans, children and adults alike.”
Otterbacher continues, “The King of the Monsters comes to Mondo’s Gallery for a kaiju-sized show featuring the city stomping giant, along with many of his friends and foes. Dozens of fantastic artists bring their appreciation to the various eras of Toho’s monster movies, and I, as a huge fan myself, feel there’s something for every kind of Godzilla fan. Whether you have love for Jet Jaguar, Mothra, Gigan, Destoroyah, or Godzilla himself, I think you’ll be stoked for what we have in store for you!”
Mondo will also have the latest additions to their ever-growing apparel collection on hand. Visitors to the gallery will have the first shot at brand new items from Becky Cloonan and Attack Peter – alongside a preview of upcoming officially licensed collectibles.
ゴジラ|GODZILLA: A POSTER SHOW will have VIP and press preview from 4-7p, with a public opening 7-10p on Friday March 13, 2020, and continue through the weekend 12-6p Saturday and Sunday.
