Robert Williams Mr. Bitchin': Movie and Discussion with Robert Williams, Mat Gleason, and the filmmakers

  • Bruce Meyer Family Gallery 6060 Wilshire Boulevard Los Angeles, CA, 90036 United States (map)


Robert Williams is a prolific artist who worked on the fringes of the traditional art scene. Schooled in Southern California hot rod culture, Williams became a leader in the world of underground comics and the Lowbrow art movement. In 1994, he, with others, started Juxtapoz Magazine, providing a forum for artists who had previously been isolated from the mainstream contemporary art world.

Join us on October 13 as we welcome our newest exhibit, Auto-Didactic: The Juxtapoz School, with a screening of Robert Williams Mr. Bitchin', a documentary exploring this history, as well as a panel discussion featuring Robert Williams, Mat Gleason, and the filmmakers.

Admission to the event is free. Standard parking rates apply. Light refreshments will be served.
