Text From Superchief Gallery and Horror Boobs
The year of 2017 marked the 40th anniversary of the VHS tape! Horror Boobs Presented The Museum of VHS NYC Debut, Tape Swap, and Screenings at Superchief Gallery in Ridgewood. On Saturday July 15th, there was a one day only exhibit that included a tape swap from 1PM to 7PM where vendors were set up selling and trading tapes. Then from 7 to 10 there was a block of programming.
If you visited this event, the memories of perusing the isles of your local mom and pop shop should of brought on a bout of nostalgia. There was vintage video store decor, scarce promotional material, mounds of eye popping posters, standees and slicks, original paintings used to create box art and some of the rarest films to ever be committed to the medium.
