FXhibition at San Diego Comic-Con 2016 Day One Highlights and Photos
FX Networks kicked off the first day of San Diego Comic-Con by unveiling the FXhibition at the Hilton Bayfront Park. The FXhibition featured groundbreaking activations and one-of-a-king interactive art installations of fan-favorite shows including Archer, American Horror Story, The Strain, It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, and Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll. Highlights from day one included:
The cast of The Strain stopped by the FXhibition space to pose with a variety of art installations based on iconic scenes from the series including a 25-foot “infected” Lady Liberty statue, “Quinlan” bust, and Strigoi Talon seat.
Thrill seekers went on a hair-raising journey into the America Horror Story universe through the AHS Fearless VR Experience.
It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia’s Paddy’s Pub offered Comic-Con attendees an escape from the heat by providing non-stop water on tap.
Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll brought the show’s rock culture to the FXhibition through a larger-than-life installation, featuring a smashed guitar with broken pieces several feet in size.
Fans were able to create shareable social media moments in the FX Sculpture Garden by face swapping with iconic FX characters including Archer’s “Pam Poovey,” American Horror Story: Asylum’s White Nun, Man Seeking Woman’s Troll, The Strain’s “Quinlan,” Baskets’ Clown and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’s “Frank Reynolds” as the “troll” character from The Nightman Cometh.
The FX Lounge became a hotspot for visitors stopping in throughout the day for shade, entertainment and free WIFI.
Guests took a minute to rest their feet in special seating inspired by some of the world’s most iconic chairs re-interpreted as notable props from various FX series, including the American Horror Story: Hotel Mattress as a Barcelona Bench and Archer’s Martini Olive as an Oliva Chair
FX Networks welcomes fans back to the FXhibition for day two tomorrow starting at 10am. On Saturday, July 23, FX will host a broadcast of Archer Live! at the FXhibition space as part of a special “silent disco” featuring light up headphones.
