Juxtapoz // Thursday, March 14, 2013
This past week, we have been introducing readers to all the new departments of the newly redesigned Juxtapoz.com. We showed you our new Gallery page, featuring every single image we post on the site in one cohesive department, and Events, our brand new calendar system of all openings, closings, and ongoing shows we write about. Today, we take a look at the ever-expanding Artist Profile section, where we are indexing all the news, shows, and magazine appearences your favorite artists have made in the magazine. 

"Kindred," a Group Exhibition Curated by Nathan Spoor @ Bold Hype

Juxtapoz // Thursday, March 14, 2013
Bold Hype Gallery is presenting a new group exhibition, KINDRED, curated by Nathan Spoor. The exhibition features an international array of artists presented in a 12 x 12 inch format. The title of the exhibit addresses a unifying thread of not just canvas size, but also the creativity at work amongst the artists included - artists that consistently push the boundaries of the new contemporary narrative. The show opens tonight and runs through April 6th.

Preview: Smithe & Dhear @ FIFTY24MX Gallery, Mexico City

Juxtapoz // Thursday, March 14, 2013
Our friends at Juxtapoz Latin America just passed along information about a show we wished we were checking in person out next week, with one of our current favorites Smithe and Dhear opening a show, La Llegada de Apophs, at FIFTY24MX Gallery in Mexico City. Smithe, you may remember, was in the magazine a few months back, and Dhear has been on our radar with some outstanding street works that have popped up in recent months. 

New mural from Blu in Bologna, Italy

Street Art // Wednesday, March 13, 2013
We are patiently waiting for a new epic stop animation from Blu like the ones that blew everyone’s mind a few years back. Not to say that his murals aren’t certified homeruns. This new wall was painted on the XM24 building in Bologna, Italy, a space that supports and promotes social change, vegetarianism, and anti-fascism. You can see content relating to Star Wars and Lord of the Rings on this one.

Music Video: Sin Fang "Look At the Light"

Music // Thursday, March 14, 2013
We are always looking for great music videos, either in their simplistic mastery of their full-blown artistic expression. Oh, and it helps if the song is good. Sin Fang's "Look At the Light" video, directed by Máni M. Sigfússon who is actually the person behind Sin Fang, is a stunning piece of video art, taking some of the concepts we have loved recently in the double-exposure works of Pat Perry or Oriol Angrill Jordà, but adding some experimental digital elements. 

This Modern Home has a Multi-Story Indoor Slide

Juxtapoz // Thursday, March 14, 2013
The residents of this four-story complex on top of a Manhattan skyscraper don't have to use the stairs, they get to swoop down a shiny steel tube. Designed by New York-based architect David Hotson in collaboration with designer Ghislaine Vinas, the slide includes glass bridges, wall climbing fixtures and an incredible geometric design.

Juxtapoz // Thursday, March 14, 2013
British artist Richard Wright has hand painted two ceilings in Amsterdam's Rijksmuseum with over 47,000 black stars. The Tuner Prize-winning artist was inspired by the original 19th century decorative wall and ceiling paintings in the museum by the original architect, Pierre Cuypers.

New Work by Rob Sato

Juxtapoz // Thursday, March 14, 2013
This morning we take a look at some new work from Los Angeles-based artist Rob Sato. We have featured Sato before in Juxtapoz Magazine. We love his rich, colorful and highly detailed dream-like sketches and paintings.   

A Sound Sculpture by Daniel Franke

Juxtapoz // Thursday, March 14, 2013
Using three different cameras to record the motion data, artist Daniel Franke created a moving sculpture visualizing a musical piece with a dancer's body. Each of the cameras reacts to sound and support the physical imitation of the musical piece by the performer. The movements of the dancer created a reference to an otherwise invisible space.  

Photos of a 1946 Nuclear Test

Juxtapoz // Thursday, March 14, 2013
  Some new photos have surfaced of the United States nuclear weapons Operation Crossroads, conducted in 1946 off the coast of Bikini Atoll in the Marshall Islands. Two bombs were detonated underwater that resulted in a 900ft vertical column of water. These images were taken 3.5 miles away from the island's beach, still uninhabitable due to the radiation.
