Beautiful LosersUnknown - 2009
In the early 1990's a loose-knit group of like-minded outsiders found common ground at a little New York City storefront gallery. Rooted in the do-it-yourself subcultures of skateboarding, surf, punk, hip-hop, and 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, created a movement that transformed pop culture. Beautiful Losers features Shepard Fairey, OBEY founder and creator of the Barack Obama "Hope" poster; Ed Templeton, award-winning pro skater; Harmony Korine, writer of the cult favorite film Kids and director of Gummo and Mister Lonely; and Mike Mills, director of Thumbsucker and designer of album covers for Beck, Beastie Boys, Sonic Youth, and more. Also featured are Barry McGee, Chris Johanson, Geoff McFetridge, Jo Jackson, Margaret Kilgallen, Stephen Powers, and Thomas Campbell.
