A must-see staple of Comic-Con every year since the activation’s inception has been FX’s aptly named FXHIBITION. Here, fans of FX series such as “American Horror Story” and “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” can grab swag, pop in for photo ops, even apply sunscreen and grab water to take a well deserved break from the scorching July heat.
Taking center stage once again on the lawn of the Hilton San Diego Bayfront Hotel, FXhibition 2018 integrates Near Field Communication (NFC) technology for the first time as part of several innovative installations from hit shows such as LEGION, AMERICAN HORROR STORY, MAYANS M.C. and ARCHER.
“The LEGION Chamber” art installation: An immersive audiovisual experience commissioned by the internationally-acclaimed Marco Brambilla Studio where participants find themselves disconnected from the outside world -literally- and fully entrenched in the hypnotic digital realm of David Haller.
“AMERICAN HORROR STORY Eccentricities Gallery”: A collection of art and oddities inspired by AHS lore and aided by Augmented Reality (AR) technology, which reveals the secrets behind the objects and clues to the series’ upcoming eighth installment.
MAYANS M.C. Deconstructed Bike Zone: The ultimate photo-op for biker fans. The deconstructed motorcycle is a bold display to introduce Mayans M.C., the highly-anticipated series from Kurt Sutter, creator of Sons of Anarchy. It features a gallery of other acclaimed artists’ takes on the new series, including El Mac, David Flores and Oscar Magallanes.
ARCHER Sound Boxes: Fans will have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get inside the heads of their favorite Archer characters with this whimsical installation by capturing a photo of themselves inside suspended sound boxes adorned with character art. Each sound box features classic sound bites from the show.
SUNNY The 13th Sunscreen And Water Stations: FX brings Camp Paddy’s Irish Pub to FXhibition in celebration of the upcoming 13th season of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. The space features playful camp-themed elements including a photo op, sunscreen, and water stations.
FX 3D Me: Any fan can become an FX hero: Just by stepping into a state-of-the-art 360-degree scanner that captures your picture from all angles, you’ll be transported into a digital art piece from your favorite show. Participating fans will also have an opportunity to get a physical 3D figurine model of themselves.
