Fotoweek at Fight Club

Rad Collector - Fotoweek at Fight Club
Fotoweek went down in Washington DC last week and included an exhibition at the Fight Club bowl. SkateDaily‘s Derek Rinaldi hooked us up with this recap.

As a non-profit organization, Fotoweek DC was created in 2008 to highlight the power of photography and their first annual event drew about 20,000 people throughout various venues in Washington DC. This year, galleries from the Smithsonian to the more cutting edge galleries along 14th Street anticipated another successful turnout. One exhibition took place off the traditional art trail on Saturday November 7th, at Fight Club. Known as much for its basement bowl sessions and holiday parties as its live music and art exhibits, Fight Club hosted an evening of photography curated by Magnum Photographer and Burn Magazine curator David Alan Harvey. Harvey displayed some selections from his 35-year history with National Geographic and 16 years at Magnum. Other exhibits included Chris Bickford’s “After the Storm”, a black-and-white tone poem on the nature and culture of surf on a remote barrier island in the Atlantic Ocean; Michael Loyd Young’s “Blues, Booze, and Barbecue”, a collection of photographs taken along the famous Highway 61, at juke joints, in private homes, and on the streets, illustrating the bond blues creates between the Delta and its people; A.J. Wilhelm’s “Kabul Opium”, a documentary piece on heroin addicts suffering from the fallout of the opium trade and border relations between Iran and Afghanistan; and many selections from the best of this year’s BURN magazine photography essays and singles.

Jeremy Wray | A Life of Creation

Rad Collector - Jeremy Wray A Life of Creation
Inexplicably, pro skater and ill artiste, Jeremy Wray, has never had his own art show. Apparently he’s got so many paitings, sculptures, and photos that throwing a show was the only way to avoid town officials from lodging a formal complaint against Wray for “maintaining a personal museum.” California is crazy isn’t it? Weed’s cool but art at home’s a no no. Just kidding about that actually. The show opens this Friday in Huntington Beach. Full info after the jump.
