After a 14-year absence of new television episodes, The X-Files has returned to global televisions with the impact of a crazed, drive-by spaceship, with its premiere episode attracting 50 million eyeballs. The epically received return of Agents Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) has proved the X-philes are still out there, en masse, so it's no wonder that to celebrate the return of the series, Los Angeles indie art gallery iam8bit has curated an exclusive X-Files themed show, Conspiracies, Monsters and Mythology. Featuring original works by more than 30 artists, the affordable limited-edition art pieces highlight characters, themes and classic episodes homages.
On Feb. 4, Blastr attended the opening-night reception, where we got a tour of the gallery and had an exclusive video chat with longtime The X-Files executive producer Glen Morgan, who returned for the mini-event series to write and direct the episode "Home Again."
Check out our media gallery of some of our favorite pieces at the show.
And be sure to log onto Blastr on Monday, Feb. 8, after Morgan's "Home Again" for our exclusive video post-mortem discussion of the episode with Glen.
