A Wes Anderson art exhibition is opening in New York

If you’re in New York next month and want to see work inspired by the legendary film director, then this is the place for you

Wes Anderson has inspired a video game, perhaps a rollercoaster and a New York art show. After a successful five years of the exhibition in San Francisco, Bad Dads will move to the Big Apple and  feature work by over 70 artists who have been inspired by Wes Anderson’s cult cinema.

Unsurprisingly, Bad Dads looks wildly popular – there’s over 41,000 attending on Facebook – so expect it to be busy if you want to go and check it out.

The event organisers see NYC as a natural choice to showcase the wealth of art inspired by his films. Event organisers said: “Although Anderson’s films take us everywhere from a fictional pre-war Europe to the far reaches of India and even out to sea, New York City is home to one of Anderson’s first real successes, The Royal Tenenbaums. His palpable connection to New York is only made stronger by the fact that he resides there as well, and as the exhibition enters its sixth consecutive year, it only makes sense to host it in such an exciting and diverse city.”

The show is being hosted and curated by the San Francisco-based Spoke Art gallery and runs from 7-9 August. Check out the gallery at the top for a taste of what to expect.
