A group show of new works and art
curated by James Banuelos & Mike Glory
Traditionally oil and water do not mix. The surf, hot rod and motorcycle
cultures that grew out of Southern California from the 50's-70s however, were
all connected by the idea of personal freedom and expression-not conforming to
the standards of the societies they existed in. For this show we are bringing together
dozens of artists and craftsmen from these respective backgrounds and
beyond-from legends to rookies. Each artists will be provided with a particular
canvas: a blank board from City Fog Surfboards, helmets from Biltwell, gas
tanks from Lowbrow Customs among other items.
To kick off the event a run was organized for the day that ended at the gallery
on Fairfax. On hand there was a live performance by ex-TSOL singer Joe Woods,
as well as live installation.
To coincide with the show, Us Versus Them creatated a pop up shop that will
occupy the back room at Known Gallery. In addition to UVT Fall product and
accessories, exclusive artist prints and tees based around some of the pieces
included in the show will be for sale.
