The Lust and Indulgence of Terry Rodgers

Erotica // Thursday, November 22, 2012
'In my work, I attempt to reflect my sense of the times we are living in, and both how richly interesting they are and how difficult it is for most of us to navigate their uncharted waters. There is a great push and pull, the lure and the repulsion, the fiction and the real, the known and the unknown. And we live in this swirl of delicate gestures, driving desires, fantasy, economic complexity and interdependence, hierarchical separations, isolation and hope...'

Stop Motion: The Modern Dance by Rogier Wieland

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, November 21, 2012
Video stills, to cardboard cutouts, to stop motion video. Although perhaps we may not have the biggest opinion on modern dance, or even the great critical eye, Rogier Wieland's work in this stop-motion is fantastic, and we can only assume time-intensive. Some of the scenes of waving arms must have taken days!

Asgar/Gabriel "We Are Hungry, In Fact Very Hungry" @ Galerie Hilger, Vienna

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, November 21, 2012
Austria-based duo Asgar/Gabriel, who create very large format paintings of the zombie apocalypse meets summer of love youth orgy meets a yet-to-be-titled revolution, opens a new body of work, We Are Hungry, In Fact Very Hungry, at Galerie Hilger in Vienna tonight, November 21. The show features new works on canvas, and various mixed-media installation works on cardboard. And we think this is the best title for a show you can possibly have.

Paintings by Louise Belcourt

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, November 21, 2012
In an interview with BOMB Magazine, Louise Belcourt spoke extensively about her paintings, and this following passage in particular grabbed our attention with its thoughts on approaching a canvas. "For one thing, I’m physically moving them around with me, be it to my Canadian studio or my one in Brooklyn because things get finished so slowly. I am painting the forms in such a way to produce as much of a visceral experience as possible."
