Every year DesignerCon organizes events and aesthetics around an important pop-culture theme. For this edition of DCON, the expo celebrates the 35th anniversary of Back to the Future—a franchise more timely than ever—and will be honoring the iconic films with a fan art show, curated by Carmen “Jane Dope” Acosta. The exhibition will be held at Art Share LA, a non-profit arts organization in DTLA, and livestreamed to DCON attendees. DKE Toys was asked to curate a selection of hand made action figure editions to be included in the main art show. Over 30 artists created editions of 10 pieces each.
From November 13 to November 15 2020, you can view and purchase figures in two places. All of the figures will be on display in the DKE booth starting Friday at noon via Zoom and available to purchase via the DKE Toys store. They will also be displayed in the gallery at Art Share LA and available virtually to DCON ticket holders via Popshop Live - Friday (VIP only) and Saturday and Sunday to General Admission DCON ticket holders.
DesignerCon will broadcast and sell to thousands of attendees on Popshop Live, a groundbreaking platform at the forefront of streaming commerce. For DCON tickets go to https://popshop.live/dcon2020
