Every once in a while in Oslo something comes around that is a must see event or happening. This screening trumps all those other events put together. Norway's No 1 website Kjefta! have put together one the most culturally relevant events of the year.
As you can tell we are excited about this here at HL. Just having that poster on our blog gets us pumped.
Featuring: 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. 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 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.
