AH, THESE BEAUTIFUL LOSERS...

NYC FILMMAKER, CURATOR AARON ROSE CO-DIRECTED "BEAUTIFUL LOSERS," WITH JOSHUA LEONARD. YEARS OF UNIQUE GUERRILLA ART CHANNELED INTO THE PROFESSIONAL "ALLEGED GALLERY/ARTIST SPACE" IN MANHATTAN.

"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."
