Event description
The opening to OSCAM's newest expo L.O.B.I. ARCADE in collab with Brian Elstak, Buttafingaz, Hedy Tjin and LFMC.

About this Event

With L.O.B.I. ARCADE, visual artist Brian Elstak reflects on both universal and personal themes in an authentic and unique way. These themes range from black empowerment, representation, colonial heritages and migration, to personal struggles such as his black man’s paranoia and his belief and disbelief in mankind.

As the title indicates, L.O.B.I. ARCADE represents a hall full of arcade machines that cover different themes. The extraordinary art forms of arcade games, Hip Hop, comic books and cartoons have shaped Elstak’s childhood. With L.O.B.I. ARCADE, Elstak takes visitors into his world, and tells them stories that are recognizable to many, but simultaneously offer a new perspective for some. L.O.B.I ARCADE is an ode to the art forms and stories, topped off with a sauce of pop culture.

In OSCAM the exhibition L.O.B.I. ARCADE will for the first time be visible in its entirety, where all 10 arcade machines are on display together. The exhibition opens on March 11, 2021. Artists Dewy Elsinga (Butterfingaz), Hedy Tjin and creative collective Lowrey Foley McClane will also make new works, especially for L.O.B.I. ARCADE.

Due to the COVID-19 measurements, we do not know yet in which form the opening will take place. Keep checking the eventbrite, our website and the socials for updates!
