Adults of a certain age have a very special place in their heart for Nickelodeon. Not current Nickelodeon, mind you. I’m talking old school Nickelodeon. Shows like You Can’t Do That on Television, Pinwheel, Double Dare, Rugrats, The Ren and Stimpy Show, Doug, The Adventures of Pete and Pete and Salute Your Shorts. All were classic television programs that helped mold the young minds of today’s twenty- and thirty-year olds.
iam8bit has chosen that era as the subject of It’s the shizNICK, a brand new group exhibition opening Friday April 19 in Los Angeles. Below, check out a small sample of exclusive images from the show.
