Aaron Rose iNterview on Hobnox
"Create something from nothing" is the motto of the protagonists from Beautiful Losers. Featured artists like Barry McGee, Margaret Killgallen, Mike Mills, Shepard Fairey and Harmony Korine emerged from the skateboarding and DIY punk rock movement. Aaron Rose hung out with them since his childhood. His New York based "Alleged Gallery" is the place where their careers kicked off in the nineties. Beautiful Losers is the latest project of curator, artist, musician and cultural entrepreneur Aaron Rose. In the Hobnox iNterview he also talks about the whole “Sell Out” discussion and about his art rock band “The Sads”. If you like Aaron Rose, also check out the report I did last year about Shepard Fairey's solo show in London.
