Update 10/24/22: The exhibition has been postponed until 2023 when it will take place in larger venue in order to accommodate a wider selection of Giger’s original artwork. Ticket holders are advised to hold on to their tickets and trade them in when new dates are announced.
H.R. Giger – Alone With The Night will open at the Vogue Multicultural Museum L.A. on October 26, just in time for Halloween. A multi-media experience, the exhibition will include over 100 works, making it the largest Giger showing ever to reach our shores. Included will be examples of the late Swiss surrealist’s airbrushed paintings, drawings, furniture, sculptures, unpublished photos, and videos.
Most well known for designing and sculpting the titular Alien (for which he won an Oscar), Giger had earned a cult following in the U.S. with his coffee table book, Necronomicon, which reproduces paintings that prefigure the creature seen in the 1979 film (whose screenwriter Dan O’Bannon gave a copy to director Ridley Scott a , which led to Giger’s hiring on the film). Giger also worked on Species and and contributed pre-production designs for Jodorowsky’s abandoned film adaptation of Dune.
The Vogue Multicultural Museum is located at 6675 Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles. The exhibition will run daily through February 26, 2023. Tickets are $39.99. Get more information at vmmla.com.
