Paddle8 and Aaron Rose present Beautiful Losers

NEW YORK, NY.- Paddle8 presents Beautiful Losers, a sale curated by veteran gallerist and filmmaker Aaron Rose. Featuring more than 40 works by artists from the film as well as artists from the Alleged Gallery, Beautiful Losers will be live to bidders worldwide August 21 – 31, 2018.

“This sale represents what I love most about art making and collecting – it’s very intimate and reflects this community that we built in NYC in the 90s. These works are by artists who I’ve known, championed and traded with for decades,” says Aaron Rose. “At the beginning, nobody was famous. We traded just because we liked each other’s work. I hung my friends’ art on my wall and they hung my stuff on theirs. It was very simple, but it created a network of patrons. Now, years later, of course, this has become quite a valuable collection. But that wasn’t the point at the beginning and it’s still not for me. Collect the work of your peers, help your friends publish their own books, records and magazines, assist them on their first movie. That’s how we did it and I can promise you they will return the favor.”

Marking the 10-year anniversary of Aaron’s film Beautiful Losers debut in 2008, the sale features works by the film’s subjects Barry McGee, Harmony Korine, Shepard Fairey and Mark Gonzales. Works by Raymond Pettibon, KAWS, Bruce LaBruce, Susan Cianciolo, Brendan Fowler and Phil Frost among others are a nod to the Alleged Gallery, the cult DIY art space Aaron ran in New York’s Lower East Side from 1992 – 2002.

Beautiful Losers’ online run exclusively at Paddle8 also coincides with Aaron’s exhibition Now + Then: A Decade of Beautiful Losers at NYC’s The Hole, presented by RCVA celebrating art in the LES in the 90s, on view August 24 – September 1, 2018. Aaron will publish the full unedited interviews from the archives of Beautiful Losers on August 20.
