Artist/Musician/Producer Mike Shinoda is pleased to announce his upcoming solo exhibition Glorious Excess (Dies) at the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles. Following his highly-successful 2008 show, Glorious Excess (Born), Shinoda returns to the Museum to unveil his latest collection of paintings and digital works. Larger, broader, and more sensational than before, Glorious Excess (Dies) is the next chapter in his series exploring society’s obsession with celebrity culture, consumer addiction, and fascination with excess. Open to the public, the reception for Glorious Excess (Dies) will take place on Saturday, August 29 from 8 to 10pm with the artist in attendance, and the show will be on view until October 14, 2009.
A collectable, limited-edition book encompassing the Glorious Excess series will be launched on opening night, and accompanying the collection of 17 acrylic-on-canvas works will be a documentary short film on view during the course of the exhibition. Additionally, new skateboard decks and artist-series merchandise will be available for purchase at the Museum. All proceeds from the sale of artwork and merchandise will go toward the Michael K. Shinoda Endowed Scholarship at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California.
