"[Editor Jacques Boyreau] has a knack for picking images; much like Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart and hardcore porn, Boyreau knows it when he sees it. And luckily, he shares it, this time from the visual-presentation experts of Fantagraphics Books — a match made in poster-art heaven." – Bookgasm

"Makes Antonin Artaud look like a picture of mental health." – Dr. K. Malcolm Richards, Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Derrida Reframed: A Guide for the Visual Arts Student

ISBN: 978-1-60699-738-3

Ships in: September 2014 (subject to change) — Pre-Order Now

SuperTrash is the awaited, mutagenic sequel to Trash: The Graphic Genius of Xploitation Movie Posters (2002, Chronicle), the book that became a prophecy of the lasting influence of grindhouse and a model describing the shared evolution between art and trash. Now, original Trash author and curator Jacques Boyreau returns to the gonzo archives of 20th century design in pursuit of more bionic art-agony and trash-ecstasy. Serving together a mix of traditional movie signage and transgressive shout-outs, SuperTrash collages a trail of freakish delights and intellectual spin-kicks that track the co-dependencies of art and trash through sly, uncompromising essays about new wave hookers, bad gods, hermaphro chic, and, of course, Lee Marvin. Part psychedelic psychotronic, part poster book, part album cover book, part paperback pulp book. Interdisciplinary, quantal, and polyglottal, SuperTrash is Surrealism for the 21st century.

SuperTrash, an Exhibition of Cult Movie Posters
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Jacques Boyreauart shows 31 Jul 2014 1:12 PM

PNCA Presents SuperTrash, an Exhibition of Cult Movie Posters

The Pacific Northwest College of Art (PNCA) presents SuperTrash, an exhibition of 200 works of cult movie signage from the 1930s through the 1980s. The exhibition, which originated at The Andy Warhol Museum and went to the Anchorage Museum, opens at PNCA in Swigert Commons on September 4 and runs through October 21, 2014.

Curated by Jacques Boyreau, the author of TRASH: The Graphic Genius of Xploitation Movie Posters, SuperTrash features work by artists such as Joe Niem, Drew Struzan, Olivia De Berardinis, Robert Tannenbaum, John Alvin, Rene Ferraci, Jack Kamen, Albert Kallis, Neal Adams, John Solie, Reynold Brown, and Renato Casaro. Boyreau considers this accumulation of signage an alternative portrait of the 20th century.

"SuperTrash is about the powers of contradiction and how the struggle to bond affects the urge to divide," says Boyreau. "We live in a paradise of anxiety, unclear certainties. Our fairy tales are poisonous. In such a situation, beautiful things bring terrible surprises."

Boyreau further develops the ideas of TRASH, on which the exhibition is based, in a new book entitled SUPERTRASH: Hermaphro Chic, Movie Fetish, 21st Century Anxiety, to be published this fall by Fantagraphics Books.

SuperTrash
In conjunction with the exhibition, SuperTrash, the Laurelhurst Theater will present a film series running from September 5 through October 17, 2014.

Sept. 5
Akira
Sept. 12 Every Which Way But Loose
Sept. 19 The Omega Man
Sept. 26 Last Tango in Paris
Oct. 3 Streets of Fire
Oct. 10 Temple of Doom
Oct. 17 Gremlins 2

This exhibition is supported by Ninkasi Brewing. But don't get jealous, Seattle, we'll have our fair share of Jacques Boyreau activity coming our way soon!

ISBN: 978-1-60699-744-4 

When the formulaic constraints, censorious nature, and onerous lack of creators' rights in mainstream comics got to be too much for the brilliant cartoonist Wallace Wood in 1966, he struck out on his own with the self-published witzend. It became a haven for Wood and his fellow professional cartoonist friends where they could produce the kind of personal work that they wanted to do, without regard to commercial demands — and with friends like Frank Frazetta, Al Williamson, Reed Crandall, Ralph Reese, Archie Goodwin, Angelo Torres, Steve Ditko, Harvey Kurtzman, Will Elder, Art Spiegelman, Don Martin, Vaughn Bodé, Jim Steranko, Jeff Jones, Howard Chaykin, Trina Robbins, Bernie Wrightson, and literally dozens more, it was bound to be a great ride! Now, Fantagraphics presents the complete run of witzend in this beautiful slipcased two-volume set with a special introduction by Bill Pearson and a history by Patrick Rosenkranz.

For a Kickstarter pledge of $120 or more, pre-order this volume signed by contributor Howard Chaykin while supplies last!
