Academy of Motion Pictures Presents Art Exhibition Inspired by 2012 Nominees

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and Gallery1988 will present "For Your Consideration," their first collaborative exhibition featuring art inspired by the 2012 Best Picture Oscar nominees, on display February 14 through 17 at Gallery1988 Melrose in Los Angeles. The images can currently be viewed in a digital gallery at http://oscar.com/for-your-consideration.

"Working hand-in-hand with the Academy has been a dream come true for Gallery1988 and its artists," said Jensen Karp, co-owner and co-curator of Gallery1988. "So much inspiration has come from past Oscar telecasts as well as the amazing range of films that have been nominated this year. It was a perfect fit for our Style of artwork and treatment, and we can't wait to show everyone the results of some of our most creative contemporary minds."

The Academy and Gallery1988 commissioned a small group of young International Artists to create original screen prints inspired by this year's nine Best Picture nominees. The participating artists and their respective films are Matt Owen ("Amour"), Anthony Petrie ("Argo"), Rich Kelly ("Beasts of the Southern Wild"), Mark Englert ("Django Unchained"), Phantom City Creative ("LES MISERABLES"), Tom Whalen ("Life of Pi"), Jeff Boyes ("Lincoln"), Joshua Budich ("Silver Linings Playbook") and Godmachine ("Zero Dark Thirty").

These screen prints are not available for purchase; however, fans will have several opportunities to obtain limited edition posters. On each day of "For Your Consideration," Gallery1988 will give away free posters to the first 100 people who visit the gallery at a specified time. For information on when each film poster will be distributed, visit nineteeneightyeight.com or follow Gallery1988 on Twitter (@galleries1988) and Facebook (gallery1988). Fans outside the Los Angeles area can find out about poster giveaway opportunities by following the Academy on Twitter (@TheAcademy) and Facebook (TheAcademy).

"For Your Consideration" also features 12 illustrations of memorable Oscar moments by Oliver Barrett, a light installation by Julie B (Pretty in Plastic), and other Oscar-inspired work by artists Olly Moss, Nan Lawson and DabsMyla.

Gallery1988 opened in Los Angeles in 2004 and has since become a world-recognized destination for pop culture art. It has produced such shows as Crazy 4 Cult, in which 100 artists created pieces inspired by classic Cult films, and has worked with such luminaries as Stan Lee, Beastie Boys, Weird Al Yankovic and Judd Apatow. It recently spearheaded the "Breaking Bad" Fan Art Campaign, partnering with Sony to promote the most recent season of the television show. Gallery1988 also has created pieces for PaleyFest and Jason Reitman's Live Read series at LACMA, as well the historic poster and artwork for Paramount Pictures' 100th Anniversary celebration.

Gallery1988 is located at 7021 Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles. Hours are Wednesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.; the gallery is closed on Monday and Tuesday. For more information, visit nineteeneightyeight.com.

Oscars for outstanding film achievements of 2012 will be presented on Oscar Sunday, February 24, at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center, and will be hosted by Seth MacFarlane. The Oscar presentation will be televised live on the ABC Television Network and in more than 225 countries worldwide.
