this coming friday night in new york, ‘beautiful losers’ the movie will have its US premier at the IFC center. the film is the big-screen follow up to the beautiful losers exhibition and book – here’s some more info:

beautiful losers’ celebrates the spirit behind one of the most influential cultural moments of a generation.
in the early 1990’s a loose-knit group of likeminded outsiders found common ground at a little NYC
storefront gallery. rooted in the DIY (do-it-yourself) subcultures of skateboarding, surf, punk, hip hop
& graffiti, they made art that reflected the lifestyles they led. developing their craft with almost no influence
from the ‘establishment’ art world, this group, and the subcultures they sprang from, have now become
a movement that has been transforming pop culture.

starring a selection of artists (aaron rose, barry mcgee, chris johanson, ed templeton, geoff mcfetridge,
harmony korine, jo jackson, margaret killgallen, mike mills, deanna templeton, stephen powers,
thomas campbell, shepard fairey, and cheryl dunn) who are considered leaders within this culture,
beautiful losers focuses on the telling of personal stories. It speaks to themes of what happens when
the outside becomes ‘in’ as it explores the creative ethos connecting these artists and today’s youth.
