Crazy 4 Cult New York Preview #3: ‘Army of Darkness,’ ‘Edward Scissorhands,’ ‘The Rocky Horror Picture Show,’ ‘Rushmore’ And More
Posted on Wednesday, August 8th, 2012 by Germain Lussier
For the past five years, Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles has hosted what’s become a 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, and countless imitators have sprung up 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, called 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 third post you’ll see art from Army of Darkness, Edward Scissorhands, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Rushmore, Fight Club, Little Shop of Horrors, Battle Royale and many more.
Don’t forget our first preview here and second preview here. 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.
