Björk Issue Release Party @ Clift Hotel, SF

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, March 18, 2015
There are very few figures of the last 25 years that can cross the barriers of pop, underground, and progressive art quite like Björk. She has transformed the way we look at music, video art, stage performances, and overall artistic persona unlike any artist we can think of. In conjunction with the opening of her special retrospective at the MoMA The Museum of Modern Art, the April 2015 cover is a celebration of the past, present, and future of Björk. Join us in the Redwood Room at the Clift Hotel in San Francisco for this special celebration.

In this landmark work from SFMOMA's media arts collection, Doug Hall traverses the technologically mediated modern landscape in pursuit of what he calls a "technological sublime."

Earl Sweatshirt's "Grief" Directed by Hiro Murai

Music // Tuesday, March 17, 2015
Earl Sweatshirt (unhappily) dropped his latest song "Grief" along with a track list for an upcoming album. The music video, which also unexpectedly appeared today, follows Kendrick Lamar's surprise release of "How to Pimp a Butterfly" yesterday. Intentional or unintentional, we don't mind, we've been craving some new music and are in hip hop heaven.

Currently on view at Ever Gold Gallery in San Francisco is a solo exhibition with contemporary photographer Sandy Kim. How’s The Weather Down There? is a body of new work presented in large scale photographic prints created over the last two years of the artist’s travels through dark, playful, sensual and emotionally charged personal situations of herself and her subjects. This new body of work stays true to her roots of being influenced by Nan Goldin and Diane Arbus, yet moves towards a dream like state of an unique aesthetic of a jaded youth.

The Blade Runner Model Shop, Revisited

Design // Tuesday, March 17, 2015
I don't want to expose too much of my inner nerd to the hundreds of thousands of people who read this site every few weeks, but when I saw these images of The World's Best Ever yesterday showing the model shop and behind-the-scenes look of the sci-fi classic "Blade Runner," I started to get all nostalgic for the "magic of the movies."
