Xenoplasm II July 14 2017
Outré Gallery Melbourne CBD
14 – 28 July 2017
This July Outré Gallery welcomes back Xenoplasm, Australia’s most expansive exhibition of Sofubi and Soft Vinyl Designer Toys.
After a hugely successful premier in 2016, Xenoplasm will again bring a selection of the leading national and international Sofubi/Soft Vinyl and graphic artists to Australia.
The Exhibition explores the current movement of ‘West meets East’ within Art-toy production, painting and illustration. Bringing together eastern tradition in toy design and production mixed with Western pop culture, horror, and a sci-fi aesthetic, and how the two have influenced each other.
Xenoplasm II will showcase a body of incredible pieces from the Artists representative of the Sofubi/Soft Vinyl scene, which is considered relatively new here, but quickly gaining momentum due to a dedicated core group of collectors and enthusiasts.
With the 2016 show opening receiving an overwhelming response from buyers and press both Australia wide, and abroad, Xenoplasm has doubled in size for 2017, this year featuring over 40 of the most reputable and accomplished Sofubi/Soft Vinyl artists and companies from around the world.
