Barry McGee returns to the Bay after many years for his “MidCareer Survey” at the BAM. We think they fit everything in one place from his photos, ball point drawings, robots, and even some student work. This might be one of those multiple visit exhibitions.
Beautiful Losers: Contemporary Art and Street Culture is a first of its kind exhibition of art and design celebrating the extraordinary creative production and cultural influence of youth cultures. Skateboarding, graffiti, and punk have not only affected fashion, music, literature, and film, they have inspired a generation of young artists who identify with the iconoclastic lifestyle and counter-culture stance of these creative forces born from the street. In addition to including works in all media by more than 50 artists, Beautiful Losers includes music, album covers, skateboards, and “zines” that reveal the spirit and vitality of street culture and its expanding influence.
