A Must See: Beautiful Losers (The Movie) Opening This Friday in New York

While the Wooster website is not exclusively about “street art”, at the heart of everything we post on the site is a celebration of a DIY (“do it yourself”) attitude and aesthetic. 

Probably no better articulation of the DIY mindset in contemporary art is Beautiful Losers, Aaron Rose’s fantastic traveling exhibition and book that brings together the work of an amazing group of artists including Terry Richardson, ESPO, Ed Templeton, Barry McGee, Jo Jackson, Margaret Killgallen, and many others. 

If you saw the exhibition or have the book then you undoubtedly walked away inspired and motivated to not only enjoy art, but to create it. 


This coming Friday night in New York at the IFC Center marks the US theatrical debut of Beautiful Losers, the movie.  Like the exhibition and book that proceeded it, Beautiful Losers is a true labor of love that makes you want to go out and create something.  It’s wonderfully shot and includes a ton of terrific interviews with a fantastic group of artists.  The film is the perfect companion to the exhibition and book.
