Have you ever sat down watching your favorite cult movie and wondered if your favorite scene could be captured on canvas? Or wondered if an alternate interpretation would change your perception of said movie? Well, film fanatics and enthusiasts alike, wonder no more. “Crazy 4 Cult” is an annual cultural phenomenon curated by the famous LA-based Gallery 1988 which celebrates cult movies, interpreted through a vast number of talented artists — 200 artists to be exact.
This year is extra special, as the show is making its first debut in New York City. For the past five years, Gallery 1988 has hosted “Crazy 4 Cult,” a traveling art show showcasing solely on the west coast. Their past shows have been so successful that they’ve decided to bring their latest collection to the Big Apple — with a little something extra. Pulling from legendary art of the first four years, they have now produced a beautiful coffee table book titled Crazy 4 Cult: Cult Movie Art with an introduction by Kevin Smith. The book is now available for purchase at their New York City pop-up store.
“Crazy 4 Cult” is on display from now to September 1st at Gallery 1988’s pop-up store in New York City, located at 64 Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking District. For purchase info and/or other inquires, please visit their site at: http://www.NINETEENEIGHTYEIGHT.com.
