Giant Robot Invades the Walker!

Puny humans! Bow to my edifice!

From the press release.

P.S. I'll be there!

Giant Robot at the Walker

Since its humble beginnings as a stapled-and-folded digest in 1994, Giant Robot magazine has grown into a full-color authority on Asian, Asian-American, and hybrid popular culture. Subjects range from new art,up-and-coming design, and alternative cinema to unusual travel, unheard music, and obscure history.

The Los Angeles publication's atypical subject matter, unpredictable angles, and honest tone have earned a hardcore readership around the world. Success has not been limited to newsstands and coffee tables.

Giant Robot has become a bona-de brand, with a line of artbooks and retail stores in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York City.

On Thursday, October 5, Eric Nakamura and Martin Wong, the editors/ creators of Giant Robot, will give a free talk at the Walker Art Center's William and Nadine McGuire Theater in Minneapolis.

Topics will include but are not limited to the evolution of Giant Robot and the events and directions ofAsian and Asian-American popular culture that have been detailed in the magazine's first 12 years.

They don't visit Minnesota very often, and hope to see you there.
