Artist, musician, writer, director, curator and all around man about town Aaron Rose, known for curating the traveling museum exhibit ‘Beautiful Losers’, brought his debut solo show to Los Angeles last week.
Aaron was the owner and director of Alleged Gallery in New York City and created Alleged Press, which has released books featuring the art of Ari Marcopoulos and Chris Johanson. He is also co-editor of ANP Quarterly, published by RVCA.
The show, ‘Born To Cry’, is on view currently at Hope Gallery over in the Echo Park area of Los Angeles through Feb. 11th – 1547 Echo Park Avenue / 323.782.9221.
The man of the hour… Mr. Aaron Rose
Director, photographer, musician and Beautiful Losers alumni Mike Mills was in the house when we swung through on opening night giving his props to Aaron on his solo debut…
The prized memento of the eve – a great lil’ zine made by Aaron featuring a collection of his ‘week in review’ posts from his blog over at http://www.rvca.com/. Over the weeks leading up to the show, Aaron went through and picked his favorites from the past year worth of posts, and compiled them in a cool lil’ zine to give away at his opening.
We were lucky enough to walk away with an extra copy – first person to shoot an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with their address and the name of the book Aaron released about his NYC gallery Alleged, will get that copy.
