For its final show of the year, the Mondo Gallery will present “A-Nick-Nick-Nick-Nick-N-Nick-Nick-Nick Nickelodeon Show.” As impressive as the posters on display — two of which, Sachin Teng’s “TMNT” print and Janice Chu’s new art for “SpongeBob SquarePants,” have been shared exclusively with IndieWire (below) — is the fact that they actually got the correct number of “Nicks” from that famous ’90s jingle. The show begins this Friday, December 9 and runs until the 17th.
Among the other shows that will be featured in new prints are “The Ren & Stimpy Show,” “Rocko’s Modern Life” and “Aaahh!!! Real Monsters”; contributing artists include Florian Bertmer, Dave Perillo, Francesco Francavilla, Rosemary Valero-O’Connell, Sachin Teng, Ciro Nieli, Sara Kipin and Janice Chu.
“Nickelodeon was a huge part of my childhood,” says Mondo creative director Mitch Putnam in a statement. “It represented everything cool and rebellious, and parents didn’t know anything about it. We worked with a number of great artists to pay homage to some of the channel’s most influential programming.”
