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 second post you’ll see art from Shaun of the Dead, The Princess Bride, The Goonies, Better Off Dead, Easy Rider, Repo Man, Welcome to the Dollhouse and even something from a little artist named Olly Moss.
Don’t forget our first preview here and now’s the second. Crazy 4 Cult NY opens August 9th from 6-9 PM at 64 Gansevoort St. in the Meat Packing District and remain on display through September 1.
