AIGA NY has posted its spring Small Talks schedule, which we always like to promote here on UnBeige due to their eclectic nature as well as their low, low price ($75 for all four talks for members). James Biber, Alisa Grifo and Barbara Glauber are all on the schedule, starting with Biber on February 5.
But the hands-down highlight is a screening of the film Beautiful Losers, something we’ve been tracking here for almost a year. We first got a sneak peek from director Aaron Rose last winter, then caught a revised work in progress screening at the Swerve Festival (where almost everyone we talked to walked out saying, “Damn, I really need to go home and make something right now.”) Rose will be doing a Q&A after the screening and we’re hoping that a few of the NY artists will come out as well.
Sadly for the general public, the Beautiful Losers screening is only open to AIGA members (but, hey, it might be worth joining for this!). As far as a wide release date, the website says spring; we’re hearing June. Until then, you can watch the trailer, and hopefully it will inspire you to make at least part of something.
