For the past five years, Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles has hosted what’s become their signature event: Crazy 4 Cult. Initially created with the help of Kevin Smith, the art show has grown by leaps and bounds each year featuring art from almost every single cult movie imaginable. There’s a book commemorating its awesomeness, countless imitators from coast to coast, but the event was always relegated to Los Angeles. No more. This week, Gallery 1988 moves east for the sixth annual iteration of its pop culture art show, Crazy 4 Cult New York. It’ll open August 9th from 6-9 PM at 64 Gansevoort St. in the Meat Packing District and remain on display through September 1.
Over 200 artists have contributed to the show which, suffice to say, means there’s way too much art to put into one post. So, just like /Film has been doing for years, we’re splitting it up over several days. In this first post you’ll see art from films such as Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure, Fight Club, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Donnie Darko, The Goonies as well as two exclusive pieces you’ll only see here commemorating Point Break as well as a tribute to the films of 1988: Akira, The Adventures Baron Munchausen, The Neverending Story, Beetlejuice and Who Framed Roger Rabbit? Plus much more.
Here’s the first batch of images from Crazy 4 Cult NY, open August 9-September 1. For more information, visit Gallery1988.com. Mouse over each piece for the movie and name of the artist.
