Foundation’s Associate Creative Director, Kyle Shoup visited the L.A. office recently, from Chicago. Shoup, Producer, Evan Cohen, and Owner, Samantha Hart went to MOCA to attend Aaron Roses’ lecture about his curating Art in the Streets, an exhibit of street art which included works by our artist in residence, Nick Egan.

A great time was enjoyed by all and we strongly encourage anyone in the L.A. area to check out the exhibit for themselves.



Taking it to the Streets

Foundation director, Nick Egan recently had his seminalĀ  record cover work featured in a show at MOCA/ The Geffen Contemporary. The category under which his work was represented was called Art in the Streets. This show featured graffiti art and street performance art.

Art in the Streets is the first major U.S. museum survey of graffiti and street art. Curated by MOCA Director Jeffrey Deitch and Associate Curators Roger Gastman and Aaron Rose, the exhibition will trace the development of graffiti and street art from the 1970s to the global movement it has become today, concentrating on key cities such as New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, London, and Sao Paulo, where a unique visual language or attitude has evolved.

If you’re in LA this Summer, be sure to catch the exhibit, which will run from April to August.

Nick Egan Aligns with Foundation for Documentary

We’re happy to announce a new creative alliance with influential British film director Nick Egan. The project? An upcoming documentary about internationally renowned creativity expert and author Sir Ken Robinson, whose revolutionary ideas about education are spurring a radical reexamination of the entire educational process.

Egan, whose influential work in graphic design and music video is credited with helping to shape music and fashion culture since the early days of the punk rock revolution, has always been drawn to the eccentric, the innovative, the ground-breaking. He has worked with hundreds of innovative artists including Oasis, Alanis Morisette, Mick Jagger, Sonic Youth, Duran Duran, Iggy Pop, and INXS, as well as with celebrated fashion designers Marc Jacobs and Vivienne Westwood. With creative powerhouse Propaganda Films, Egan earned a reputation as one of the world’s premiere music video directors, as well as an innovative commercial director creating spots for major brands including Coca Cola, Levi’s, Nike, Nintendo and Sony Play Station.

The story of Sir Ken, a highly-respected, visionary thinker knighted 2003 for his work examining the significance of creativity in the educational system and the economy, fits right into Egan’s stable of fascinating characters who refuse to accept the status quo.

Our co-founder and Creative Director Samantha Hart first crossed paths with Egan nearly 20 years ago while working at Geffen Records in Los Angeles. “I have great respect for Nick as an artist and creative visionary. His work over the years has yielded some of the most seminal music videos and iconic album cover art of our time, as well as unforgettable television commercials. I feel like we’ve come full circle to find ourselves working together again. It is with great pride that Foundation becomes associated with Nick on this film about the incredible Sir Ken Robinson.”
