'Arrested Development' Art Exhibit to Open at Gallery 1988
The beloved and painfully short-lived Fox series Arrested Development lives on in many ways. Aside from its pending Netflix revival and full-length movie, the memory of the three seasons we all know and love will be getting brought back to life through various forms of visual art at Gallery 1988 starting this weekend.
There's Always Money in the Banana Stand will be featuring artworks inspired by the antics of the Bluth family. Well known for their love of pop culture-based art, Gallery 1988's curator Jensen Karp sheds light on the upcoming exhibit — "We always saw Arrested Development as art," Karp says via LAist. "In a sense that it's not expected that everyone is going get it, and you had to have some context and knowledge of its history to fully understand it. It became famous and well-regarded after its demise (like every master artist) and now in 2012, it's influence is seen everywhere."
That wave of influence is the perfect catalyst for such an installation which will feature varying techniques of bringing the Arrested Development crew alive again with paintings, sketches, figurines and even plush dolls.
There's Always Money in the Banana Stand opens June 19 and will run until July 21. May never-nudes and failed magicians everywhere rejoice!
