BEAUTIFUL LOSERS REDUX

NOW & THEN—A DECADE OF BEAUTIFUL LOSERS—an exhibition celebrating the ten-year anniversary of the Aaron Rose and Joshua Leonard documentary Beautiful Losers—is up through the end of this week at The Hole.

Capturing the spirit of artists affiliated with Rose’s Alleged Gallery in Manhattan in the early 1990s—a group that included Margaret KilgallenBarry McGee, Ed Templeton, Mike Mills, Thomas Campbell, Johanna Jackson, Shepard Fairey, and Chris Johanson—the film portrays a community that still exists in the form of the RVCA Artist Network Program:

“This program encompasses RVCA’s ongoing effort to advocate, promote, and lend support to artistic talents who embody the nonconformist spirit of street, youth, and skate culture, and subvert the traditional art world.”*

The show also includes work by Rita Ackermann, David Aron, Susan Cianciolo, Cheryl Dunn, Joey Garfield, Mark Gonzales, Todd James, Alex Knost, Harmony Korine, Ari Marcopolous, Geoff McFetridge, Steve PowersAndre Razo, Tom Sachs, Ivory Serra, Deanna Templeton, and Tobin Yelland.
