FX Networks is heading to Comic-Con with FXhibition, which it calls a “visually arresting, one-of-a-kind interactive art space” featuring the American Horror Story Fearless VR Experience and installations for its series including Archer, The Strain, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll. The events are set for July 21-24 at San Diego’s Hilton Bayfront Park.
AHS will curate a virtual reality experience that takes participants through encounters inspired by the creepshow anthology series. The AHS Fearless VR Experience will let fans become a part of the show and test the boundaries of their own fear.
FXhibition also will offer photo opportunities with some of FX and FXX’s signature series. Among the art installations:
- The Strain‘s 25-foot “infected” Lady Liberty statue.
- Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll’s turbulent rock culture illustrated through a larger-than-life installation featuring a smashed guitar with broken pieces several feet in size for a life-size exhibit.
- On display in the FX Sculpture Garden, fans can take photos with characters sculpted as busts 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.
It’s Always Sunny -n Philadelphia’s Paddy’s Pub will provide water on tap in a branded collapsible cup. The FX Lounge also will be available throughout the day to provide shade and entertainment, where guests can use seats inspired by some of the world’s most iconic chairs re-interpreted as notable props from various FX series, including the AHS: Hotel Mattress as a Barcelona Bench and Archer’s Martini Olive as an Oliva Chair.
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 for a late-night screening. The first 300 people who arrive will receive an Archer 4-in-1 blanket.
