South Austin Popular Culture Center says
SouthPop proudly presents its next exhibition and first of 2015 - The World According to Rob Jones - opening Saturday January 17, and running through March 28, 2015. Local Austinite, Rob Jones won a Grammy award in January, 2014 for his packaging design of Jack White’s Under Great White Northern Lights. SouthPop is proud to display a selection of his works from early in his career though his more recent work with world class bands like Jack White, The Raconteurs, Arcade Fire, and the Arctic Monkeys, to name a few.

Jones’ chaotic collages reflect his flashy and irreverent sense of humor. Growing up influenced by punk art and consumerism, Jones uses delicate and traditional engravings layered over one another to make subversive and meaningful statements on popular culture and the glamour of celebrity. His gig posters remind those familiar with SouthPop’s collection of 1960s and 70s psychedelic posters of the works of Texas’ own Jim Harter or San Francisco’s Wilifred Satty.

SouthPop is honored to present the critically acclaimed, yet never boring, evolution of 1960s psychedelia, filtered through a punk lens, to make statements about the art and design of 21st century pop-glamor as shown by the works of Rob Jones.

SouthPop is located at 1516B South Lamar Boulevard and will have an opening reception for the exhibition starting at 7:09pm the evening of Saturday January 17, 2015, featuring live music and refreshments, if the weather’s good. Entry is a $5 suggested donation, free for members. There is no parking at the center, so please park on Collier Street. The exhibition will run through March 28, 2015 during SouthPop’s regular hours - Thursday - Sunday, 1- 6pm, or by appointment or chance. Please call the center at 512-440-8318, email at info@southpop.org, or check our website at www.southpop.org for any questions.
