ANP Quarterly

ANP Quarterly is an arts magazine published by RVCA with a focus on a broader sense of art and community. The idea behind this endeavor is to make a magazine that will educate and inform openly and without the social or financial restrictions that plague many publications today and contribute more often than not to the "same old thing" again and again. Our goal is not to focus on current events or "who's hot" but rather to bring forward people and phenomena that deserve acknowledgement and coverage regardless of their place in time. For as long as we can make it happen, this magazine will be completely FREE and without advertising. We are beholden to nobody, save our own conscience, RVCA included. ANP Quarterly will be distributed around the world through galleries, bookstores, clothing and record shops.


Opening Night | Apolitical Process

On Thursday, September 22nd RVCA and Purps were glad to present Apolitical Process.

A vision by Kelly Slater, Curated by PM Tenore.
Featuring Bruce Reynolds, Kevin Ancell and Todd Glaser.

This is an artistic journey through the chaotic and sometimes inflammatory 2016 election cycle. It is our aim to explore and expose the underlying truth, hypocrisy, danger, motivations, misinformation and effects of this process. It is our hope that the artwork produces thoughtful discussion, transparency and an openness to question the powers that be...

Apolitical Process will be on view through October 9th at Folding Table Gallery in Venice. 201 San Juan Ave (corner of Main St.), Venice, Ca 90291.

Recap | RVCA Presents 'Advance'

RVCA presented its European ANP show, ADVANCE, on September 7, 2016, at Darwin - Bordeaux, featuring the works of Ed Templeton, Andrea Do Souto, Ben Horton, Benjamin Jeanjean, Jerome Romain and Kevin "Spanky" Long.

In the presence of all artists except Long, over 350 people attended the launch event and we are already very honored to count thousands of visitors since the kick-off, thanks to the Ocean Climax festival that brought over 25,000 visitors to the Darwin location between Sep. 8 and 11.

With a mix of photography, paintings and illustrations from our advocates and ANP Artists, this first edition of what is already planned to become an annual Art show, enabled artists and amateurs to come together at one of France’s most fashionable locations and enjoy an authentic gathering of the community.

We would like to thank the artists for their work and presence, RVCA’s teams and partners, our hosts at l’atelier Les Mains Sales x Les Sauvages and you, fans, art-lovers, opinion-leaders, skate-culture aficionados…

The show runs till Sep. 28, 2016.

Kevin Ancell | Nos Vemos En Venecia

On Thursday evening, October 1st RVCA was proud to present the opening reception for ANP Artist Kevin Ancell's highly anticipated, first-ever solo show: 'Nos Vemos En Venecia', curated by RVCA Founder PM Tenore. The corner of Main Street and San Juan Avenue in Venice, California was a fitting location for the gallery opening, and more importantly, a homecoming for Kevin.

"The idea for Ancell's exhibition was easy. Over the last 15 years with RVCA and the Artist Network Program I have been privileged to curate and be surrounded with so many amazing and talented artists. Ranging from museum shows to pop ups in New York, Austin, Miami, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Hong Kong. I realized that my dear friend, who I was around more often than not had never had a proper solo show. In that moment we both looked at each other and decided that needed to change... We were going to create a show for him in Venice. It was time for Kevin to come full circle and share his art in the place that began to inform his work. His artistic ability is just the tip of the iceberg, Kev is a true renaissance man." -- PM Tenore

'Nos Vemos En Venecia' will be on view at 1320 Main St Venice, CA until October 15th.
