Beautiful Losers: Contemporary Art and Street Culture is a first of its kind exhibition of art and design celebrating the extraordinary creative production and cultural influence of youth cultures. Skateboarding, graffiti, and punk have not only affected fashion, music, literature, and film, they have inspired a generation of young artists who identify with the iconoclastic lifestyle and counter-culture stance of these creative forces born from the street. In addition to including works in all media by more than 50 artists, Beautiful Losers includes music, album covers, skateboards, and zines that reveal the spirit and vitality of street culture and its expanding influence. The unifying traits of these young artists, whose styles and distribution channels still remain largely outside of the art world, include an interest in pop culture iconography, a sense of the absurd, and a strong do-it-yourself attitude. Beautiful Losers traces the early influences on this new generation of artists, filmmakers, and designers, and explores the broader cultural trends that inform their work. Mark Connors, President of Total Sports Distribution Inc.
(TSABrand apparel) stated, We are privileged to have TSABrand as the primary sponsor of the Beautiful Losers exhibit. Street culture and skateboarding have always been intertwined and we are glad to have the opportunity to give back to this creative community. Gritty, rebellious, and sincere this loose-knit group of artists are part of a lineage that traces back to the dynamic East Village scene of the 1980s, a moment in New York City when the renegade spirit of street culture collided with the art world to dramatic effect.Beautiful Losers begins by exploring this fertile moment in New York when Jean-Michel Basquiats paintings capturing a unique urban perspective made him a darling of the art world, when Keith Haring was a celebrated graffiti artist tagging subway cars and posters, and when Ari Marcopoulos began photographing and filming the colorful personalities of the emerging New York Hip-Hop scene. Acknowledging activity during this same period on the west coast, where the Los Angeles punk rock and skate scene were thriving, this section of the exhibition also includes early hand-drawn skateboards by Wes Humpston, the irreverent pen and ink drawings of Raymond Pettibon, and documentary photographs of the raucous west coast music scene by Glen E. At the core of Beautiful Losers are works in all mediaincluding painting, sculpture, photography, film, and performanceby more than thirty American artists who have emerged during the last decade including Shepard Fairey, Phil Frost, Mark Gonzales, Chris Johanson, Margaret Kilgallen, Geoff McFetridge, Barry McGee, Ryan McGinley, Clare Rojas, and Ed Templeton.
