Classic Brian Chippendale silkscreen print from 2007. Published to commemorate the release of his epic monograph Ninja. Ninja is amazing oversized hard cover monograph and is the most significant book featuring his body of work. Chippendale is perhaps best known as the extremely talented drummer and vox behind iconic noise band Lightning Bolt as well as Mindflayer with Mat Brinkman. Chippendale was a prime mover and key founder in the Fort Thunder creative scene out of Providence, Rhode Island. His work was included in the Beautiful Losers satellite show Beaver College along with other key Fort Thunder artists including Brinkman and Leif Goldberg (both members of the seminal art collective Forcefield), and others.
We did 3 significant projects outside of the museum that ran concurrently with Beautiful Losers. This piece was exhibited in one of them: Beaver College. Scroll to see the schedule of events. It was an epic week! One for the books. So much energy.
Beaver College was a huge show at a historic brewery that was multi-level. Floor one was art installations by The Royal Art Lodge (Marcel Dzama, Michael Dumontier, and Neil Farber), Space 1026 (Philadelphia), and Paper Rodeo (Forcefield, Paper Rad, Lightning Bolt). The second floor featured musical performances by The Faint and Secret Machines. The third floor was a massive custom indoor skatepark made just for this project with performances by the Toy Machine squad: Ed Templeton, Austin Stephens, and Josh Harmony.
