Juxtapoz // Tuesday, November 25, 2014
Juxtapoz Art & Culture Magazine has enjoyed the entirety of 2014 celebrating our 20th anniversary as a print publication. From a massive group show at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in NYC in the Spring, to a surfboard charity auction in San Diego, to publishing two new book titles, Psychedelic and Hyperreal, as well as countless special features in the magazine, we are proud to have paid homage to our past, present and future. Now, in partnership with our friends at SCOPE Miami Beach 2014, we present a series of galleries that epitomize the most dynamic and cutting-edge contemporary art in the world today. It is safe to say we are gratified to close out this 20th year with one of our most ambitious projects to date. Our installation dates will run the entirety of Scope Miami Beach 2014, December 2—7, 2014.

Polly Penrose: "A Body Of Work"

Erotica // Tuesday, November 25, 2014
We know this isn't traditionally known as "erotica," but because of the NSFW nature, it resides in this section. But Polly Penrose's serios "A Body Of Work" has such a command of color, structure and form, and we love her comment that "It feels like I’m hammering my body into the landscape of the room, one picture at a time."

Pose "Lemonade" @ Library Street Collective, Detroit

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, November 25, 2014
We love the direction that POSE's work has gone in recent years, and this new show is no exception. Detroit fine art gallery Library Street Collective announces it will host the newest body of work by world-renowned artist POSE (Jordan Nickel). The exhibition, entitled “LEMONADE”, will run through December 5, 2014 at Library Street Collective’s downtown Detroit gallery. The LEMONADE opening coincides with the first-ever exhibition at Public Matter, an outdoor public exhibition located in the Belt, a newly redeveloped alley directly behind Library Street Collective. 

MIKE BROWN RIP MURAL

Graffiti // Tuesday, November 25, 2014
Artist Joseph Albanese honors Mike Brown, the unarmed black teenager who was shot by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri. Today we remember Trayvon Martin, Jordan Davis, Amadou Diallo, Tamir Rice, Akai Gurley and the countless other young black men whose lives have wrongfully been taken by corrupt law enforcement agencies and a deeply corrupt judicial system.

Keiichi Tanaami "Cherry Blossoms Falling in the Evening Gloom" @ NANZUKA, Tokyo

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, November 25, 2014
We wish we were in Tokyo this month! That way we could see Japanese psychedelic master Keiichi Tanaami's new show, "Cherry Blossoms Falling in the Evening Gloom" at Nanzuka. If you remember correctly, Tanaami was featured in our Juxtapoz Psychedelic book. His newest show will feature both sculptural works and large canvas paintings. 

Truth and Consequences

Photography // Tuesday, November 25, 2014
In his series “Thruth and Consequences”, Paris-based photographer Thomas Chéné traveled to the United States to visually capture loneliness, isolation, and a collection of seemingly vulnerable characters. Using what appears to be a community on the verge of becoming a ghost town, as the setting for his visual narrative, Chéné creates a visual narrative that explores the shared feelings of isolation among his subjects and their inner struggles with their own purpose. 

In the Magazine: Hajime Sorayama

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, November 25, 2014
Hajime Sorayama's work has always seemed ahead of its time. Since the 1970s, echoing an aura of futuristic seduction, his half-human, half-robot gynoid figures reflect a vision of fantasy, predicting what lies ahead. His range of achievements are equally spectacular, with unprecedented recognition from major museums and a variety of collectors, clients and experiences so vast that they too seem otherworldly. However, like many defined creatives, Sorayama possesses a heavily weighted level of self-criticism and drive to fulfill the highest levels of personal expectation...

The Body and Soul of Choi Xooang

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, November 25, 2014
South Korean artist Choi Xooang shows us the realism of the human emotion frozen in an instant. The flow of life through polymer clay figures breathes the difficult reality we face today if Man does not confront the outer world. Choi personifies what he feels inside canalized by every emotion in a multidimensional way. He works through the whole body or a part, focusing on the intensity of sensation as he crystallizes life filled with so much severity and darkness....
