Video: Gallery 1988's Crazy 4 Cult: NY show opening night

7:00 PM on 08.10.2012 // Liz Rugg

For the first time ever, pop culture art gallery Gallery 1988 has taken their annual cult-movie-centric art show Crazy 4 Cult out of its home in California and landed it in New York. East Coasters were apparently all about it, since people reportedly started lining up outside the gallery the night before the show opened, and a line continued around the block during the opening reception.

For anyone unacquainted with normal gallery opening proceedings, this totally never happens. It just goes to show how much people really love their cult movies! There's definitely something about being a part of the group or joke that makes cult movies really powerful. And G1988 is super smart to be capitalizing on this phenomenon, since while most of the art world either totally ignores or actively shuns popular culture, G1988 and shows like Crazy 4 Cult unabashedly celebrate it. It's a nice change of pace.
