Milk Gallery presents Larry Clark Stuff Opening Reception
Larry Clark Stuff, Boo-Hooray’s exhibition drawn from acclaimed film director and photographer Larry Clark’s personal collection of skateboard decks, skater t-shirts and related posters, stickers, photographs and “stuff” had a New York run at Milk Gallery last night in Meat Packing District. CONTRA headed over — and ninja-skipped the enormous line — for a night of art, KIDS, free beers and stimulating conversation. Overhearing old skater dudes talk about their glory days and the tricks they used to do, while elbowing our way through a four-people deep bar — it was certainly a situation, complete with people raising their drained cups for a refill over each others heads. But chaos fit the occasion: we were there to salute Larry Clark’s cinematic genius and general badassness. We snapped a few photos as best we could — as always, we attracted the best-looking people in the room.
Curated by Johan Kugelberg, the show features Larry’s collection of skateboard decks and t-shirts spanning the late 1980′s up until today showcasing the guerrilla graphic design of companies like Fuct and Supreme, alongside outfits and boards used in Larry’s movies Wassup Rockers and the award winning Marfa Girl.
If you are in the area, you can catch the show until March 14th, open Monday to Sunday, 10 AM to 6 PM. Peep the gallery and check us out on Instagram @thinkcontra for more visual goodies.
