A Look Back at Grind: The Graphics and Culture of Skateboarding

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 08, 2010
“Usually, skateboarding imagery means to communicate an I-Don’t-Care attitude yet, ironically, there is much hard labor, by designers and screenprinters, behind the creation and production of these images.” This quote is from an old program catalog we dug up in our offices of Grind: The Graphics and Culture of Skateboarding, exhibited way back in 1995 at the Huntington Beach Art Center.

Ed Templeton's "Deformer" Launch and Slide Show Commentary

Juxtapoz // Monday, December 08, 2008
To celebrate the release of his new book, Deformer, Ed Templeton (Juxtapoz #35 and #88) will be giving his first ever slide show presentation, where he will be discussing images from the book as well as unseen work, and taking questions from the audience. Eleven years in the making and compiling more than 30 years of material, Deformer's photographs give a sun-drenched glimpse of what it's like to be young and alive in the "suburban domestic incubator" of Orange County. From the Alleged Press series curated by Aaron Rose, Deformer interweaves disciplinary letters from Templeton's grandfather and religious notes from his mother with sketches, snapshots, telling images and the occasional brutal tale, laying out an unresolved narrative that plunges readers headlong into Templeton's chaotic youth and his reliance on art and skateboarding to accommodate its stresses and joys. "Skateboarding allowed me to travel the world, and that showed me that where I live is totally messed up," he observes. "That perspective has fueled me and been a source for my art." Through photographs, stories and ephemera of all sorts from his youth and teenage years, Templeton offers readers an intensely close and personal look at an artist's coming of age. The slide show presentation and discussion goes down this Sunday, December 14th at 7:30pm at Family in Los Angeles.
