Haaa! I kill me.


For those that have a recollection of the eighties, chances are that ALF brought some moments of joy to your life. For this weekend only, you can take a trip down TV memory lane at Young & Reckless’ ridiculous pop-up show inside Known Gallery featuring ALF collectibles and inspired art by Morning Breath, Grant Cobb, Tristan Eaton, Cleon Peterson and OMENS. We caught up with our friend Roger Gastman who put the show together for a chat about all things ALF.
Why Alf? What’s your connection to this fuzzy little dude?

I have been down with ALF since ’86 when he came out! I had posters in my room, t-shirts. I was a fan. I had bootleg DVDS of the show before they got released for real. I pick up various pieces of ALF junk when I see them. A few years back in 2012 when the whole let’s vote for the president thing was going on, I didn’t really like either guy so I went out and bought “Gordon “ALF” Shumway for president badges and handed them out to friends.

Talking Portraits by James Gurney

“In 1981, artist James Gurney brought his sketchbook and tape recorder to the pier in Santa Monica, California. He did a pencil portrait of two guys there and then asked them to describe themselves to the tape recorder. For the first time, their faces and voices are brought together in a talking portrait.”
