An hour before the show opened some people had arrived early.

Despite rain Thursday night, the exhibition Futurism 2.0 opened to an over capacity crowd with a long line waiting to get in. After all the work, it was time to celebrate and reveal their aesthetic discoveries. Check out photos and commentary below. For more info about the show check out the 12oz preview post also.

Before the exhibit opened and crowd made it impossible to photograph the show itself, 12oz took some photos to display the beautifully hung show by Rob Swain and Gamma Proforma. Matt W. Moore, Phil Ashcroft, Mark Lyken (left to right).

After the crowd started coming in, it got hot and sweaty. Lucky for cold beer flowing.

Golden Age subway painter and Wild Style documentary participant, Carlos Rodriguez aka Mare139 blessed the show with an abstract sculpture that come out of his explorations in Urban Modernism, which he began to incorporate in 1985.

Divine Styler has branched out from Hip Hop to visual art, putting three pieces of animated art in the show. Dense, complicated imagery floats and fades in and out on these little monitors.
