Press Room: ZappAttack Ad Block Poster Monstrosity - curated by Alex Winter From Mondo
To create the new documentary ZAPPA, director Alex Winter combed through a thousand hours of mostly unseen material from Zappa’s personal archives.
To create the ZappAttack Ad Block Poster Monstrosity, Winter also raided The Press Room’s archive of over 40,000 vintage newspaper ad blocks, creating a loving pop-art collage representing Zappa’s love for classic monster and sci-fi movies. Titles represented include INVASION OF THE SAUCER-MEN, THE BLOB, THE CURSE OF THE WEREWOLF, THEM, GORGO, IT CONQUERED THE WORLD, MONSTER ON THE CAMPUS, THE BRAIN THAT WOULDN’T DIE, ATTACK OF THE CRAB MONSTERS, KONGA, and THE MAGNETIC MONSTERS.
This 18”x24” letterpress print is an edition of 250. All posters signed by Alex Winter, PLUS - live and in-person, Alex will sign and give away one copy at Alamo On Demand’s live watch party of ZAPPA, hosted on Scener on November 28th at 7:30pm Central.
