Beautiful Losers movie
Beautiful Losers is opening tonight at the Gene Siskel Film Center on State and Randolph in Chicago and playing through September 25th. The documentary is based on Aaron Rose's Lower East Side space, Alleged Gallery, and the artists who showed with him during its 10 year existence in the 1990's.
Featuring a group of my favorite artists including Twist/Barry McGee, Margaret Kilgallen, Chris Johanson, Jo Jackson, and ESPO/Steve Powers, the film's title is based on a traveling art show that toured the U.S. and Europe a few years ago. You can check out the catalog and info here.
