Sorry for the short notice on this must-see exhibit which opens tonight at Andrew Edlin Gallery in NYC:
"Andrew Edlin Gallery is pleased to present Zap: Masters of Psychedelic Art, 1965-74, curated by Gary Panter and Chris Byrne. The exhibition will include works by the seven artists from the original Zap lineup: Robert Crumb, Victor Moscoso, Rick Griffin, S. Clay Wilson, Gilbert Shelton, Spain Rodriguez and Robert Williams. The focus of the show is the early days of Zap, when these artists begat their visionary deconstruction of the comic book with remarkable innovations in storytelling and drawing. An accompanying catalogue is being published by the gallery."
'Nuff said! (Well, if it's not 'nuff, there's more info and links to preview the artwork here.)
UPDATE: More on the show from Gary at his blog!
