This is a great piece. It's a collaboration between Ed Templeton and Andrew Jeffrey Wright. Classic Templeton "Sect" imagery with trademark AJW background. Mixed media on panel in artist's frame. This piece is from one of the satellite shows we did when the inaugural Beautiful Losers exhibit opened in March 2004. 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.
