D-4 before a long-awaited auction...
Outsider(s): a history of Beautiful Losers. This is the name of this set of original works presented by Artcurial in Paris on October 22nd. Highlighting the alternative culture and practice of the 90's artistic Do It Yourself, these works had already been the subject of a traveling exhibition in 2004 soberly called Beautiful Losers. And believe us the artists who compose it have something to please you: Barry McGee, Phil Frost, Raymond Pettibon or Kaws. As many names of art that don't miss to be appreciated.
And for good reason, most of the works presented come from a time when these artists weren't yet very well known. That's why they were acquired from artists himselves or founders of Beautiful Losers in 2004. The path of these pieces is full of surprises especially to understand the codes used by them during their career. We will find no less than 200 pieces including originals signed by artists of the 90's DIY movement or even streetwear pieces and skateboards.
America is at the heart of Artcurial events and if we use the plural it is not for nothing ! As often, in addition to its auction the house holds an exhibition to see the coins in advance. A amazing preview with pieces by Larry Clark, David Ellis, Harmony Korine, Shepard Fairey, Jeff Koons, Futura or Stash. A radiant artistic diversity visible every 18, 19 and 21 October from 11am to 6pm and 20 October from 2pm to 6pm.
See you at Artcurial, 7 ront-point des Champs-Elysees 75008 Paris France, for this exceptional exhibition followed by the auction on 22 October. You know what you're doing this weekend...
