NYC::Beautiful Losers Movie Premier

This Friday, August 8th, marks the theatrical premier of Beautiful Losers at the IFC Theater in New York City. The film focuses on the group of artists first popularized by the traveling exhibitions spearheaded by Iconoclast Editions beginning in 2004, including Barry McGee, Chris Johanson, Margaret Kilgallen, Ed Templeton, Thomas Campbell, Mike Mills, Harmonie Korine, Stephen Powers, Geoff McFetridge, and Shepard Fariey. It is hard to argue the influences these artists and their collective aesthetics have had on popular culture, youth lifestyle, advertising, and media over the past decade. Given the current co-opted, over-saturated state of graffiti, skateboarding, punk, hip-hop, and just about every other subculture under the sun, we hope this film will awaken (and re-awaken) some to these originators and to the artistic purity and integrity that once existed within these cultures. Director (and Beautiful Loser co-founder) Aaron Rose and several artists featured in the film will be present at the Friday and Saturday 8:20 and 10:20 pm screenings. Expect to be inspired and walk out with a smile on your face. Tix here
