Q Pop presents Super Mecha / Super Future: a tribute to mecha anime and the legacy of Japanese futurism of the 80s and beyond. Robots, idols & more!

Built on the foundation of the space operas and sci-fi epics of the 1970s, and fueled by pop culture trends both in Japan and the U.S., there was a wave of creativity that exploded going into the mid-80s.

More realistic robot designs, dramatic, serialized storytelling and an infusion of pop music lead to some of the most memorable TV series, films and OVAs (original video animation) to come out of Japan.

The Super Mecha tribute art show will celebrate this imaginative and ground-breaking era, and the cultural and stylistic influences, anime, & manga it inspired to this day!

Show dates: November 9th – 30th, 2019
Opening Reception: Saturday, November 9th, 6 – 10 PM

80s anime & idols cosplay is encouraged! 80’s anime music galore!
