One of the most important institutions in the San Francisco art scene is in danger of closing! Adobe Books has been an important part of the lives of artists, writers, and book lovers -- not only for the books, but for the events, gatherings, the gallery, the discussions, and the welcoming spirit of the place. They have a wonderful plan to save and expand the store and gallery, and there is less than 3 days left to help fund it!

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, March 13, 2013
Last Saturday night, as Manhattan was in full swing of all things Armory Show, Dennis McNett and the Wolfbat team put together a full music, installation, performance, and fine art party at House of Vans in Brooklyn. The show aimed to slay "the demons and storm surge sent by the gods through hurricane Sandy." In other words, a benefit. Tod Seelie was there...

Photographer Martin Rietze's trip to the Sakurajima Volcano in Japan happened to coincide with a lightning show (caused by the volcano) that lasted only 20 seconds. In that time, Rietze was able to capture these amazing, hellish shots of smoke, fire, lave bombs, and...lightning.

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, March 13, 2013
Japanese artist Mihoko Ogaki has combined the night sky with the body in these sculptures constructed from plastic and embedded with LEDs.

The show itself is loaded with great talent from both America and Europe, curated as a "Transatlantic survey of figurative painting in Europe and America, named after the ubiquitous question posed on transatlantic flights."

We are enjoying the paintings Iranian-American artist Tala Madani. Her portraits of Middle Eastern men are provocative and humorous commentaries on cultural and sexual identity. The scenes in her work "play out fictive rituals of a deviant, distinctly female imagination: prayer gatherings twisted into homosexual orgies, birthday parties targeted for terrorist attack, and tattoos and body hair plucking construed as the latest in ultra-macho beauty makeovers."
