ANP

Artist Network Program

THE RVCA ARTIST NETWORK PROGRAM, COMMONLY REFERRED TO AS THE ANP, IS AN ONGOING PROGRAM WHICH AIMS TO SHOWCASE THE TALENT OF ACCOMPLISHED AS WELL AS UNKNOWN ARTISTS WHO INSPIRE OUR GENERATION AND PUSH THE BOUNDARIES OF CREATIVITY; PROVIDING SOMETHING OF SUBSTANCE AND CULTURE.

TO RVCA, AN ARTIST IS NOT SOMEONE WHO JUST PAINTS A PICTURE, OR WRITES A SONG, BUT SOMEONE WHO IS DEDICATED TO SHARING WITH THE WORLD THEIR LIFE, EMOTIONS AND SOUL THROUGH INNOVATIVE AND CREATIVE IDEAS. RVCA AND THE ANP WERE DEVELOPED TO SHAKE THE VERY FOUNDATIONS OF THE BUSINESS, BY GIVING BACK TO THE ARTISTS AND PROVIDING A VOICE FOR THEIR CREATIVE GROWTH.



Exhibitions

Tino Razo | Party In The Back

RVCA alongside the Heavy Time Institute are presenting the Australian premiere of 'Party In The Back' from celebrated skateboarder, Tino Razo.

Razo's evocative images of sunset-drenched skate-sessions document the faded grandeur of South California's abandoned suburban pools. The same adventurous spirit that drove him to use word-of-mouth, satellite technology, and pure luck to track down deserted territories also permeates the tone of his art. Steeped in nostalgia for a thrill-seeking youth gone by and increasingly ungraspable notions of the American Dream, the exhibition, categorised as a 'lyrical photo eulogy', is a narrative of decay and discovery.

Having skated for over 30 years, Tino Razo lives his photo project, and his perspective is accordingly authentic. His work is being exhibited in Australia for the first time, alongside a book of all images, available to purchase alongside limited prints for the duration of the show.

Party In The Back opens at the RVCA Corner Gallery on Friday 21st from 6pm to 8pm and will show for the following month.

ANP Quarterly

ANP Quarterly Vol 2 / No 9

We are pleased to announce the release of the latest issue of ANP Quarterly, the printed magazine of RVCA’s Artist Network Program. Now, in publication for over a decade, ANP Quarterly has always landed on the leading edge of popular culture, looking beyond what’s hip and focusing on the creative world through our singular lens. Our new issue Volume 2/Number 9, continues this tradition. ANP Quarterly is available for free at a number of galleries and retailers as well as on our site here. Price on site covers the shipping cost.

In this issue, Features include photographer Jesper Haynes, who documented the 1980s New York art/club scene in stunning black and white; a retrospective interview with artist/designer Susan Cianciolo who many claim single-handedly invented ‘90s deconstructed fashion; as well as a profile on Kevin Ancell, Venice Z-Boy turned painter, interviewed by fellow Dog Towner Jim Muir. Emma Reeves sat down with photographer Cheryl Dunn to speak about her storied career; we spoke to artist Nathaniel Mary Quinn; and entered the wild world of dynamic brother/sister duo Mike and Natalie Krim. We also delve into the world of some of the world’s most unique, up and coming contemporary galleries, go deep into the archives of 1980s LA Punk magazine Slash, and play fly on the wall at a panel discussion on 1990s LA Party Crews with Guadalupe Rosales, helmer of the mind-blowing Instagram feed Veteranas & Rucas. And that’s just the beginning! Pick up a copy because there’s so much more in the issue than we’re able to list here.
