Introduction and Interviews by 
Professor Colin Fallows 

Following the great success of “Or Glory – 21st Century Rockers“, the acclaimed German photographer Horst A. Friedrichs concentrates on an extraordinary design classic: the leather motorcycle jacket, which developed in the 1950s from being merely functional outerwear to become the blazing symbol of the era’s youth revolt. James Dean wore one, as did Marlon Brando and Dennis Hopper. Since then, the myth has continued to flourish, so that, to this day, leather jackets are one of the few outfits with true cult status. They have soul. They have character and they are worn with pride; they are painted, embellished, embroidered and enhanced with studs and patches. Since decades, Lewis Leathers, the  legendary British manufactory for leather motorcycle jackets, has brought together especially attractive and exceptional examples for their unique and comprehensive collection of vintage leather jackets. The artistic photos by Horst A. Friedrichs make these available to the larger public for the first time and provide authentic insight into this highly exceptional lifestyle.


Nach dem großen Erfolg von „Or Glory – 21st Century Rockers“ konzentriert sich der renommierte deutsche Fotograf Horst A. Friedrichs auf einen ungewöhnlichen Design-Klassiker: die Rocker-Lederjacke, die sich in den 1950er-Jahren vom praktischen Kleidungsstück zum Symbol der Jugendrevolte entwickelte. James Dean trug sie, Marlon Brando, Dennis Hopper. Seitdem lebt der Mythos. Bis heute gehören Lederjacken zu den wenigen Outfits mit Kultstatus. Sie haben Seele. Sie zeigen Charakter und werden mit Stolz  getragen, bemalt, verziert, bestickt, mit Nieten und Aufnähern geschmückt. Die traditionsreiche britische Lederjackenmanufaktur Lewis Leathers archiviert in seiner Lewis  Leathers-„Vintage Jacket“-Kollektion seit Jahrzehnten besonders schöne und ausgefallene Exemplare. Die künstlerischen Aufnahmen von Horst A. Friedrichs machen sie erstmals der breiten Öffentlichkeit zugänglich und geben einen authentischen Einblick in diesen ganz besonderen Lebensstil.

  • STUDIO. The Studio is the World is the Studio

    First-Ever Exhibition of the Work of German Artist Norbert Tadeusz in California at ESMoA, June 7-September 27, 2015 STUDIO is a collaboration between the Los Angeles
    County Museum of Art and ESMoA
     
    April 13, 2015 (El Segundo, California) – The work of Norbert Tadeusz (1940-2011) will be exhibited for the first time in Los Angeles and on the West Coast at ESMoA. The art laboratory’s experience #17, STUDIO, is a collaboration with the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, (LACMA) and the art laboratory in El Segundo, ESMoA. The retrospective spans the entire career of the prolific painter and draftsman and presents about 30 paintings of mostly monumental scale.
     
    STUDIO focuses on the representations of Tadeusz’s studio and the artist’s own oeuvre.  The art experience considers the trope of the artist studio in art history and examines the notions of the studio in general: as a place that frames the artist’s relation to reality; as a space both public, private and deeply personal; as a set and a setting; as a circus and a stage; as reality…and as fiction.
     
    Experience STUDIO, the work of Norbert Tadeusz, at ESMoA in El Segundo, California with an opening talk on June 7, 2015. The exhibition will run through September 27, 2015. 
     
    Tadeusz was among the first artists to study with the legendary Joseph Beuys in Dusseldorf in the early 1960s, a respected professor in his own right who taught at prestigious art academies in Dusseldorf, Karlsruhe, Berlin, Braunschweig, and elsewhere. A contemporary of internationally renowned artists such as Gerhard Richter, Sigmar Polke, Blinky Palermo, Georg Baselitz and Jorg Immendorf, Tadeusz was associated with German figurative painting of the 1980s – a.k.a.,Neo-Expressionism or The New Wild. To his credit, Tadeusz always resisted categorization and insisted on remaining an outsider. Indeed, though he is represented in major museum collections and exhibited widely in Germany and Europe, he is virtually unknown in the U.S. ESMoA is both pleased and excited to introduce this exceptional painter to Southern California at its first-ever art experience devoted to a single artist.
     
    STUDIO invites visitors into the world of the artist’s studio, a recurring subject throughout Tadeusz’s 50-year career. Arrangements of otherwise ordinary studio objects such as stretcher frames, coffee cans for paint brushes, random cables,and rolled-up canvases appear alongside fascinating architectural views of the studio space, with skylight shadows forming geometric shapes on the walls, or theatrically staged scenarios of bodies depicted from extreme angles. The artist’s powerful, intensively colored and at times highly complex compositions reshuffle and reinterpret traditional motifs such as the still life, the nude study, portraiture or genre painting. Reaching from quasi-abstract depictions of basic studio matter to spectacular circus scenes, Tadeusz obsessively mastered his medium in both smaller and monumental scales.
     
    STUDIO is organized by ESMoA in collaboration with LACMA. The exhibition is curated by LACMA exhibition associate Nana Bahlmann and is accompanied by a fully illustrated exhibition catalogue The World is the Studio is the World(Daab Media), with contributions by LACMA’s CEO and Wallis Annenberg Director, Michael Govan, as well as Bahlmann; Bernhard Zünkeler, Director of artlab21; and the artist’s widow, Petra Lemmerz. STUDIO is part of an initiative by LACMA to partner with communities and organizations in all five districts of Los Angeles County – making ESMoA a perfect fit.
