“There is more life in a skateboarder skating down the street than in a hundred Hollywood actors,” Larry Clark once said. So, it’s not hard to imagine that the director of gritty skate-punk films, such as Kids (1995) and Wassup Rockers (2005), would have a killer skateboard collection. The good people at Boo-Hooray recently got their hands on his decks, posters, stickers, and T-shirts (labels include Fuct, Real, and Supreme), from the late 1980s to the present, as well as outfits and boards from Wassup Rockers and Marfa Girl (2012). After showing them at the L.A. Book Fair at MOCA, they now bring an expanded version of the exhibit Larry Clark Stuff to Milk Studios for a short run ending today. Limited quantities of his books, boards, posters, and ephemera will be on sale. And speaking of Clark, mark your calendars for March 12 when his regular collaborator Harmony Korine will be at the Museum of the Moving Image (movingimage.us) for a preview screening and discussion of his new film, Spring Breakers.
Wed., March 6, 6 p.m.; Thursdays-Sundays, 10 a.m. Starts: March 6. Continues through March 10, 2013
