Posted on Friday, January 31st, 2014 by Germain Lussier
1984 was a great year for blockbuster cinema. Like, a ridiculously good year. The Terminator, Ghostbusters, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Beverly Hills Cop, Gremlins, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Police Academy, This is Spinal Tap, Revenge of the Nerds, Purple Rain, The Karate Kid, Splash, and Red Dawn were all released. All those films and more are celebrating their 30th anniversary this year and the Bottleneck Gallery in Brooklyn, NY is having one big bash in their honor.
It’s an art show called It Came From 1984 and it opens February 7. Artists from all over have interpreted films from 1984 in all kind of media and, below, you can catch a glimpse.
It Came From 1984, curated by Chogrin, opens from 7 p.m. February 7 at the Bottleneck Gallery, 60 Broadway, Brooklyn, New York. It’ll remain on display for a few weeks after. Get specifics at www.bottleneckgallery.com.
