NY Armory Arts Week with David Shelton

Day 1

Pulp Drunk: Mexican Pulp Art from the 1960s-70s at Ricco Maresca Gallery

The lurid cover art of Mexican pulp novels is a pop culture revelation. Surreal images of aliens, robots dinosaurs, & dastardly killers from stories of mystery & romance.Some of the highlights of the art include a gorilla breaking through a door to assault a man, small aliens attacking a woman as her maid watches in dismay, a robot war, invisible men, murder and lusty women. When viewed from this vantage, the exhibition puts the images in a cultural context mixing popular fiction and folklore while blurring the lines between the mundane and the absurd.
