Description

This fine art monograph/faux underground comic facsimile is a psychedelic trip through the hippie movement. In 2017, Gary Panter created an art installation, Hippie Trip, inspired by his first visit to a head shop in 1968.

It expanded his mind to the possibilities of psychedelic art and music, analog crafts and drug culture. Crashpad is an extension of that installation and a riff on underground comics creators such as Zap’s R. Crumb, Victor Moscoso, Robert Williams, and other icons of that era.

An art object itself, it will be reproduced as both a deluxe, oversized hardcover reproducing Panter’s pages at full size on heavy art paper, as full-colour facsimiles of the originals.

In addition, Crashpad will be printed as an old-fashioned and stapled black-and-white (with colour covers) underground comic book, on newsprint, approximately 6’ x 9’, inserted into a sleeve within the hardcover so it can be removed and enjoyed on its own.
