THE WALKING DEAD: ART APOCALYPSE IMMERSIVE GALLERY COMES TO LONDON

Official The Walking Dead immersive art gallery to open in February

Exhibits include interactive set recreations and prop replicas, terrifying immersive moments and prize-winning fan art

Competition artwork selected by The Walking Dead Executive Producer, Director and Special FX Make-Up Designer Greg Nicotero

Open to public on February 8th and 9th in Old Truman Brewery, Brick Lane

A new breed of art exhibition will open in London next month, bringing to life the legacy of one of the most popular shows of all time. FOX’s The Walking Dead: Art Apocalypse will give fans a unique chance to experience interactive set and prop replicas, prize-winning fan art and immersive artwork not for the faint of heart.

It has been eight years since the cult series kicked off in October 2010, with more memorable and shocking moments than you can shake a blood-stained baseball bat at providing a wealth of inspiration for Art Apocalypse.

 

 

Interactive displays will include a recreation of the infamous room inhabited by The Governor (David Morrissey) where gore-lovers can submerge their own head into the display among decapitated walkers, a replica of the motorbike ridden by Daryl (Norman Reedus) and live walkers recreating favourite scenes including the escape from Terminus, Winslow and the most gut-wrenching walker kills.

The exhibition also houses the twenty shortlisted entries of a national fan art competition launched by FOX in October 2018, which have been selected from over 800 entries and brought to life in the gallery. The judging panel included The Walking Dead’s very own Greg Nicotero, Executive Producer, Director and Special FX Make-Up Designer.

 

 

The Walking Dead: Art Apocalypse will also feature daily SFX and prosthetics displays, deconstructing the incredible make-up process that has characterised the visual identity of the show. Here, horror fans can see how the iconic walker look is created in painstaking detail over three hours, as well as the chance for visitors to experience their own walker ‘make-under’. There will also be key behind the scenes shots from filming over the last eight years, showing the cast and crew bringing the world of The Walking Dead to life.

The second half of season 9, returning to FOX on Monday 11th February at 9pm, finds our groups of survivors, both old and new, continuing to deal with the impact of events that took place during the six years that have passed. Since the disappearance of Rick, many of these characters have become strangers to each other, and in some ways, strangers to themselves. What they do know is that they are in undeniable danger. They will soon realise the world just beyond does not operate as they thought. The group’s rules and ways of survival no longer guarantee their safety. A whole new threat has crossed their paths, and they soon discover it’s unlike any threat they have encountered or endured before. The group will start to question what they think they see. What may appear to be normal in this post-apocalyptic world could actually be more disturbing and terrifying than when the apocalypse first broke out. All that is certain is the stakes are high and numerous.

 

 

The gallery will be at a pop up space in Truman Brewery in East London, and will open with a private VIP launch on Thursday 7th February. Following this, the gallery will open its doors to fans for a limited run on Friday 8th February 12 – 7pm and Saturday 9th February 10am – 5pm
