Gallery1988, the art gallery dedicated to exhibiting works of art related to pop culture, has opened a pop-up gallery here in New York City for the first time as part of their annual Crazy 4 Cult exhibition. The moderately-sized gallery opened with a packed reception Thursday evening (I stood in line for slightly over an hour waiting to get in) and is now open for public.

With “cult” being an umbrella descriptor of the movies referenced, the inspirations vary. Considering the target audience of pop culture-obsessed collectors, it should not be a surprise that the movies most referenced by numerous artworks are the usual suspects of Twin Peaks, Back to the Future, The Goonies, Shaun of the Dead and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. Every once in a while, though, you see a lonely soul, like an illustration that pays tribute to Freddy Got Fingered.
