Free - Graffiti Art doc "Beautiful Losers" co-sponsored by moCa - Cinematheque at the Cleveland Institute of Art - Cleveland

This documentary profiles Margaret Kilgallen and a host of other outsider artists from the 1990s -- Harmony Korine, Mike Mills, Ed Templeton, Barry McGee -- all of whom emerged from the graffiti, punk, and skateboard subcultures. (Kilgallen is the subject of a solo exhibition, that’s where the beauty is., at moCa Cleveland through May 17.) Tethered together by the gritty Alleged Gallery in Lower East Side Manhattan, these talented misfits coalesced into a DIY art movement that changed pop culture. After the screening, Courtenay Finn, moCa’s Chief Curator and curator of the Kilgallen show, will lead a discussion about the movie and Kilgallen's work. Blu-ray. 90 min. Admission is free but a ticket is required.
