I’m going to make this one short and sweet since I’m juggling moving into a new flat, scheduling meetings in the sun and trying to reorganise my weekly schedule to fit this exhibition opening in!
A new exhibition by Barry McGee, Ed Templeton and Raymond Pettibon is dropping this Thursday evening at the Circleculture Gallery. If artistic depictions inspired by skateboarding, graffiti and punk are enough to get your freak on, then lace up those kicks and bounce on down after the jump.
ED TEMPLETON: Skater Kids On Bikes, 2004. Black and white photograph, 11″ x 14″ (27,94 cm x 35,56 cm); in courtesy of the artist.
RAYMOND PETTIBON: Untitled (Watch The Director), 2008. Mixed media on paper, 30″ x 22″ (76,2 cm x 55,88 cm); in courtesy of the artist, Contemporary Fine Arts Berlin & Regen Projects Los Angeles.
If you’re still reading, then here’s more: The exhibition traces familiar themes of our times – suburban youth, teenage alienation, the anti-hero, the outsider, the omnipresent media, social unrest, the struggle between man and his destiny. But its not all as depressing or ominous as it sounds – I’ve been told McGee’s work features neon-coloured geometric panels and judging from the videos we’ve seen here, this trinity has our vote as a worthy go-see.
