“Angelo, you’ve brought many oafs here,” says his mom at the dinner table, “but these guys… ”
“They really look like rabid dogs,” remarks his father.
Yo Daddy, you’re closer to the truth than you may realize.
Canemorto rapping through the winding streets of Grottaglie, Italy in Golden Age.
Everyone’s favorite Italian trio of graffiti-writing, Street-Art-painting, canvas-painting, rapper-pizza-makers are back on the big screen! And they are still failing successfully.
It’s a running joke now that these witless brothers-in-art are tormented by myriad intertwined demons about their insecurities and conflicts with seeking/avoiding commercial “success” and the mainstreaming/authenticity of the Street Art scene in street culture.
Golden Age, their solo show this fall is hosted by Studio Cromie and Angelo Raffaele Milano, the owner of the 11 year old gallery and empresario behind FAME festival.
FAME, of course, was of the first so-called Street Art festivals, far before the current onslaught of festivals in cities and towns everywhere. FAME was underground and seemingly authentic before Milano halted it after five years for many of the same conflicting feelings Canemorto has expressed about commodification of the counter-culture. You’ll see an ad for his now-touring “FAME” movie embedded within this one.
Fake it till you make it. Canemorto sporting slick New York shades in Golden Age.
Golden Age is the new partner video to the show, and the Marco Prosperpio directed film follows the hapless trio through the streets of Grottaglie, Italy, or as one Canemorto calls it in their rap, an “historic shithole”.
“It represents a sort of sequel of our previous video Toys,” Canemorto tells us, “this time the infamous trio has to fool both a crazy gallerist and a gloomy record producer in the desperate hope of getting rich and famous.” Ever brutal and ever witty, this is an ingenious way to fail.
Together with the video Canemorto is publishing Golden Age EP, a vinyl record (12” – 30×30 cm) with 4 of their jams on side A and a silkscreen print on side B.
Alongside the standard edition, there is also a special edition of 10 copies with handpainted covers, all different from each other.
