Beautiful Losers is an exhibition of art and design that explores 30 years worth of work by a diverse group of visual artists that have emerged from aspects of the street culture loosely organized around the subcultures of skateboarding, graffiti, punk, and hip-hop. The exhibit includes painting, sculpture, and photography, as well as film, video, and product design by these individuals, among others.
Ed Templeton is one of the major artists on show at the exhibition.

To complement this material, the exhibition will also offer an environmental soundscape that traces the relationship between these subcultures and various genres of popular music, compiled by former professional skateboarder and musician Tommy Guerrero; a selection of ephemeral materials (album covers, skateboard decks, toys, zines, etc.) produced in or related to this milieu; and a film and video program to be screened within the exhibition itself.
The exhibition is being organized in collaboration with its founders Christian Strike and Aaron Rose of Iconoclast; the Contemporary Arts Center, Cincinnati; and the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco. The San Francisco Opening is July 16-17, 2004. Feb 5 - May 8 2005: Orange County Museum of Art, Newport Beach. A fully illustrated 272-page book published by Iconoclast and distributed by D.A.P. will be available.
