Carnage #3 and Kuma mini zine

Graffiti // Thursday, October 18, 2012
On Saturday, two limited edition zines will be released from New York-based publisher, Carnage. Both focus on the bold lettered graffiti writer, Kuma, who was featured in our Friday Spotlight last year. Kuma’s experience in Paris is the focal point of one, while a mini zine consists entirely of the artists work around New York. Each zine comes with a screenprinted cover and numbered. Four different artist prints will also be included randomly in the Paris zine. Get yours here this Saturday.

Preview: Dennis McNett's "HALLO-WOLFBAT" @ House of Vans, Brooklyn

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 18, 2012
As we noted on the site last week, ee just had our pre-Halloween costume party with Alex Pardee this past weekend, but we think if you happen to be in Brooklyn on October 31, Dennis McNett's "HALLO-WOLFBAT" installation/performance/exhibition/party would be something you should definitely spend time at. Coming soon to the House of Vans... there will be a 22' Viking ship if you need more reasons to go.

Video: ROA's Plane for the Boneyard Project

Street Art // Thursday, October 18, 2012
Earlier this year, Juxtapoz took a trip to Tucson, Arizona to document a number of international artists painting massive disused Military airplanes and cockpits for a project entitled The Boneyard Project. A variation of eclectic styles adorned each piece of aviation and an opening reception displaying the planes was held at the Pima Art and Space Museum. ROA’s plane was painted alone much after all the events and everyone had left, surely a tranquil desert experience for the artist.  

Winnie Truong "Double Twist" @ Galerie Trois Points, Montreal

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 18, 2012
Galerie Trois Points is very pleased to welcome Double Twist, the first solo exhibition in Montreal of young Toronto-based artist Winnie Truong, running through November 10th. Truong’s labour-intensive portraits reveal a very atypical human body while she questions our cultural relationship to the concept of beauty. She explores the boundaries between beauty and ugliness, delicate and grotesque.

Preview & Print: Ashley Wood "Machine Sabbath" @ Jonathan LeVine, NYC

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 18, 2012
We often think Ashley Wood needs to get as much attention as any working artist today, but we know that there is a cult-following of Wood-heads all around the world. Features in our Pushead issue in November 2011, the Australia-based Wood is set to open a new body of work, Machine Sabbath, at Jonathan LeVine Gallery on Saturday, October 20. It will be his first solo show in the United States, and shares the same opening night as Jeremy Geddes' Exhale in the same gallery.

Seonna Hong "Persistence of Vision" @ LeBasse Projects, LA

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 18, 2012
Always one of our favorite artists, Juxtapoz featured artist Seonna Hong just opened a new solo show at LeBasse Projects in Los Angeles, featuring a few stylistic nuances that we are really excited to see. Persistence of Vision is Hong’s first solo exhibition with LeBasse Projects and first in Los Angeles in seven years.

Preview: Jeremy Geddes "Exhale" @ Jonathan LeVine Gallery, NYC

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 18, 2012
As we have been noting on the site all week (can you tell we are excited?), Australian artist Jeremy Geddes will be having his US debut at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in NYC this Saturday, October 20. The Feburaruy 2012 cover artist will be showing on the same night as fellow Aussie and extreme talent, Ashley Wood. 

Barbara Kruger Buses for "Art Matters" in Los Angeles

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 18, 2012
The LA Fund and LAUSD have launched a public art project, “Art Matters,” in attempt to support funding for arts education in the Los Angeles school systems. Barbara Kruger (November 2010 cover artist), the conceptual/pop artist known for using black and white images overlaid with bold captions is working on the project.

Apex Predator Shoes by Fantich & Young

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 18, 2012
If you have ever worn a crispy pair of dress shoes, maybe even golf spikes on concrete, you know the sound of a crunchy landed of foot to ground. We can only assume the Apex Predator Shoes, made by British design firm Fantich & Young, using 1,050 teeth dentures, would give a much more brain rattling crunch sound when foot hits pavement.
