Beautiful Losers

Beautiful Losers

In the 1990s, a loose-knit group of American artists and creators, many just out of their teens, came together to forge the new idioms of that decade, for purpose other than the love of making. Influenced by the popular underground youth subcultures of the day, such as skateboarding, graffiti, street fashion, and independent music, artists like Mark Gonzales, Spike Jonze, Mike Mills, Barry McGee, Phil Frost, Chris Johanson, Harmony Korine and Ed Templeton began to create art that reflected the lifestyles they led. They learned their crafts through practice and trial and error; many had no formal training and almost no conception of the inner workings of the art world, but nonetheless went on to become the superstar artists and filmmakers of todayís cultural landscape.

The "Beautiful Losers" Artists: Books & Exhibition Catalogs

NEW PUBLICATION

Barry McGee

Text by Katya Tylevich.

Barry McGee (born 1966) is an artist who takes uncertainty and unpredictability as his guiding principles. Every exhibition is different. His installations have featured everything from robotic graffiti writers to entire shipping containers and automobiles, with drawings, sculptures, paintings and found objects roaming freely across the walls, floors and ceilings of exhibition spaces.

A native of San Francisco, McGee studied painting and printmaking at the San Francisco Art Institute, graduating in 1991. But he also made a name for himself as a graffiti artist, tagging the streets of San Francisco as Ray Fong, Twist and Twisto. He became a leading figure . . . .go to book page >>

Margaret Kilgallen: thatís where the beauty is.

Foreword by Heidi Zuckerman. Text by Courtenay Finn, Jenelle Porter.

Impure Americana, a slightly acidic nostalgia that evoked sideshows, tramp art and old travel posters with infusions of feminist wit. Roberta Smith, New York Times
Margaret Kilgallen: thatís where the beauty is. is published on the occasion of Kilgallenís first posthumous museum exhibition, and the largest presentation of her work in more than a decade. Using the artistís exhibition history as a chronological tool, thatís where the beauty is. examines Kilgallenís roots in histories of printmaking, American and non-Western folk history and folklore, and feminist strategies of representation, expanding the narrative around her work beyond her association with the Bay . . . .go to book page >>

Ed Templeton: Tangentially Parenthetical

Afterword by Ed Templeton.

Wonder and wit meet in Templeton's unflinching photographs

Tangentially Parenthetical is a selection of photographs from Ed Templeton's vast street photography archiveócurated, arranged and then rearranged by the man himself. The next chapter to his previous book of photos (Wayward Cognitions, 2014), Tangentially Parenthetical picks up where the latter collection ended. By combining intimate, accidental and unconnected moments into one linear piece of work, he tells hundreds of new stories through the thoughtful arrangement of semi-related yet completely unfastened imagery. I'm out there shooting photos all the time that don't necessarily fall under any theme other than general life, says Templeton, which is a lame title for a book. With a wink to the absurd, sandwiched between a cover of patterned parentheses and with an afterword . . . .go to book page >>
