Shepard Fairey’s new show, Damaged, opens in L.A. on November 11th from 8pm-11pm.  The location will be announced soon, but you must RSVP to attend.    The work takes a critical look at the damaged state of politics, media, human rights, the global approach to the environment, and more.⠀⠀

The exhibition will showcase never-before-seen paintings, large scale sculptures, installations, etchings, retired stencils, a printed newspaper titled The Damaged Times, prints on wood and metal, and a display of various do-it-yourself tools of empowerment.

 

Shepard announced his band is releasing a 7″ at the opening reception, and he is also giving away posters (so you can make a stencil!) at the show:

‘Hot Dogs’ is a audio/video project celebrating the tangents of a delirious brain over the course of a late-night skate to the store.” –Aesop Rock

The song was written and produced by Aesop Rock. The video was shot and edited by Kurt Hayashi, and features the skateboarding of Jake Gascoyne. All 3 collaborated conceptually to bring “Hot Dogs” to the screen. The digital version of “Hot Dogs” is available now. You can also pre-order the limited 7” vinyl version (500 copies) which features both the song and the instrumental, as well as art/design by Jake Gascoyne. 100% of the proceeds from “Hot Dogs” digital sales and streaming, and all vinyl pre-orders now thru Nov 23rd, will all be donated to http://www.grindforlife.org/ – A charity started by skateboarder Mike Rogers after his second battle with sarcoma cancer.
