Local Exhibition News



Here at Eclectix we are thrilled to share the cool news of an upcoming exhibition at our very own Oakland Museum of California - SuperAwesome: Art and Giant Robot. If you’re a fan of contemporary fine art and pop surrealism, this is a show not to be missed. It’s so wonderful to see OMCA getting hip to the scene with this great show of interesting, vibrant and truly contemporary art.

“Coinciding with the 20th anniversary of groundbreaking alternative art and culture magazine Giant Robot, OMCA features the major exhibition, SuperAwesome: Art and Giant Robot featuring works by 15 contemporary artists who have been a part of the magazine’s social and cultural evolution.
