RMIT Students Paint an Anatomical Man

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 28, 2013
Students at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) spent 18 hours fully painting a man into a highly-detailed and biologically accurate anatomical man. Using layers of pigment, the students colored the muscles and tendons to be a representation of the human body without skin. The project was a response to a national decline in time spent on anatomy in universities. Watch a timelapse after the jump...

"Seventh-Inning Stretch" curated by Carlo McCormick and Eric Firestone @ Eric Firestone Gallery, East Hampton

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 27, 2013
Eric Firestone Gallery is pleased to announce the group exhibition Seventh-Inning Stretch, a selection of contemporary artworks exploring, employing and imploring our favorite national pastime, baseball. The exhibition does not delineate the sport's history nor ratify its tradition. Rather, McCormick explains that the show is "[a] modest sampling of some of the ways in which baseball has entered the lexicon of contemporary visual art; Seventh-Inning Stretch is hopefully a meditation on how and why we care. It is about the excitement we feel and the beauty of the boredom that borders on ennui."

Bread & Puppet, June 2011

Vault // Tuesday, August 27, 2013
If you grew up in the Northeast of the United States, and your parents were on the liberal kind, perhaps even of the hippie performance art/political theatre bent, then maybe you came across the wonderful world of Vermont's Bread & Puppet. This year, the group celebrates its 50th year, and we look back on our feature on Peter Schuman's influential, timeless live puppet and performance group, and their impact on performance art in America and the world.

Doug Aitken's "Station to Station": From the Atlantic to the Pacific

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 27, 2013
The mantra for multi-media artist Doug Aitken's Station to Station project is simple: "In September 2013, a train will travel from the Atlantic to the Pacific. Activating the cultural landscape, Station to Station will connect artists, musicians and creative pioneers...". A moving public art, installation, gallery, and sculpture moving across the US, in other words. Okay, maybe this isn't so simple.

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 27, 2013
We recently saw some pieces from Uruguay's Alexandro Garcia that we hadn't seen before. A few years ago we became aware of his incredibly diverse and other-worldly drawings. A UFO sighting meant a profound change in the life of Garcia, who soon began to make drawings of an intricate and meticulous graphics from the experience.

Bizarre Hair & Skin Art by Patricia Piccinini

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 27, 2013
When we saw these at a glance we thought we were looking at some moleskin sketchbook illustrations. As soon as we took a closer look we realized that they were made from skin and hair! This is not the first time we have posted the work of Australian artist Patricia Piccinini. Her startlingly lifelike and equally bizarre sculptures had us feeling just as uncomfortable a few months ago. We also loved her incredible "Sky Whale" hot air balloon!
