There's no way to pick a favorite between Pulp Fiction and The Big Lebowski; it's just impossible in our book. But we're excited to see the artwork inspired by the legendary directors behind these works.
The Quentin vs Coen art show at Spoke Art will feature works from over 60 artists -- drawings, paintings, and more -- highlighting the directors and producer who've combined humor and violence into cinematic masterpieces.
According to the event's Facebook page, the match-up is based on the directors interpretation of "dark humor":
"Quentin vs Coen pays homage and re-imagines these momentous post-modern genre makers. Although Tarantino and the Coen brothers differ heavily in their directorial styles, artistically they both have an aptitude for overlapping themes. Both gravitate towards potent, film-defining soundtracks, both fabricate their own versions of neo-noir dark humor."
So expect to see Jules Winnfield and The Dude, but no clear cut winner.
The show at Spoke Art (816 Sutter) opens July 5 (6-10 p.m.) and runs through July 26.
