Openings: Crazy 4 Cult – Gallery 1988 (NYC)

Last week, AM took a walk down memory lane as the annual Crazy 4 Cult opened its doors to the legions of fans of cult movies and art, especially those who wanted one of the prints from Olly Moss (seen above) based off the film Léon: The Professional. Hosted as usual by Gallery 1988, this year’s showing (the sixth one) was its first time in New York and was as popular as always. Check out our photo set below… Discuss this show here.

For example, look at the […]

Openings: “Crazy 4 Cult 5” @ Gallery 1988 (Melrose)

Last night on Melrose, Gallery 1988 put one on for the fanboys and film buffs out there with their fifth annual Crazy 4 Cult show. References to favorite cult movies like the boys from Ghostbusters abounded – some subtle, some not. But all in all, the large crowd in attendance left satisfied for one night until the next get together, one must assume judging from the group, at Comic-Con later this month.

Openings: Crazy 4 Cult 3D @ Gallery 1988 LA

AM had the pleasure of attending the opening of Crazy 4 Cult 3D show at Gallery 1988 (LA) a couple weeks ago.

Again, we saw the perennial favorites such as The Professional, Edward Scissorhands, Office Space and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. But what we enjoyed were some new cult films such as The Jerk, Never […]

It’s always interesting to see artists step out of their comfort zone and create a piece for theme shows.  Constrained by the subject matter, one needs to find a way to fit into the show, yet maintain your own style so that your work is recognizable as your own.  Ana Bagayan was successful on all counts with this piece (creative process on her blog) for this year’s Crazy 4 Cult show at Gallery 1988 (LA).  The third installment of this hugely successful show is set […]
