Beautiful Losers: A Film By Aaron Rose#M6ADVLOS $29.99 29.99
The joy of making art with a community of friends, of building a scene purely out of passion and enthusiasm: this is the joy that suffuses Beautiful Losers, a heartening documentary about a loose-knit group of like-minded outsiders--young artists rooted in urban street cultures and underground scenes like skateboarding, graffiti, hip-hop and punk rock--who came together at a little storefront gallery in New York in the 1990s to make work that spoke to themselves and their friends, with little thought of the market. Companion to the now-classic book and show of the same name, Beautiful Losers features Shepard Fairey, Mark Gonzales, Spike Jonze, Margaret Kilgallen, Mike Mills, Barry McGee, Phil Frost, Chris Johanson, Harmony Korine and Ed Templeton; the film is directed by Aaron Rose, the artist, writer and curator who ran the storefront Alleged Gallery from 1992 to 2002, helping launch the careers of many of the artists in the film.
