Opening: Wayne and Woodrow White "Ass Kicking Contest"

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 14, 2015
I went to an Ass Kicking Contest on Saturday night and met the nicest group of folks. Heron Arts kicked off (here we go again) their opening show, with the above referenced title, at their new home. A smiling guy ushered us in at the door, and curator Noah Antieau extended a welcoming hello.

Disney and Dali: Architects of the Imagination

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 14, 2015
Salted caramels and bitter chocolate tantalize not only our taste buds but our imaginations. Salvador Dali painted melting clocks and Walt Disney portrayed backward clocks and relentless watches in his animated Alice in Wonderland. Both men possessed the knowledge and ability to harness the sweet and sinister in the 1940’s. This outwardly odd-coupling was destined to become their joint venture Destino, which travelled its own labyrthine path until its release in 2003.

Music Video: Tame Impala "'Cause I'm A Man" (new LP, Currents, out now)

Music // Tuesday, July 14, 2015
Update from an older post, with evidence that these guys are really good: Tame Impala's new LP, Currents, out today, July 17 through Modular, is really good. On the occasion, we wanted to share the new video for the track "'Cause I'm a Man" because its the summer sounds we prefer. Tame Impala and lead singer/songwriter Kevin Parker always seems to have a very good feel for the visual aspects of his music, and having the Currents cover be done by Kentucky-based artist Robert Beatty is pretty cool, too. Can't wait to see them at Outside Lands this August! Check it after the jump.

Hitchcock Magazine: la revue du suspense Collection, 1961-75

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 14, 2015
We randomly came across a cover of the French version of Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine, a printed publication that lasted from 1961-1975... the French version that is. Not sure if they went a little more salacious with the French version, but a lot of these covers feature some amazing illustrations and paintings. Even Patricia Highsmith wrote for them... not bad. 

Roger Weiss: Human Dilatations_Suspension

Erotica // Tuesday, July 14, 2015
A few weeks ago, we showed you a series of Roger Weiss works around distorted human bodies, and today we have this fantastic series, "Human Dilatations_Suspension". As Weiss notes of this work, "Human Dilatations_Suspension is a glimpse of the lack the contemporary human being, bared of the two elements that distinguish his quest..."

The Moss Men

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 14, 2015
The backstory: " Since 1397, the so-called 'Moss Men' are walking around the small town of Béjar, Spain once a year." For this series, photographer David Vintiner and art director Gemma Fletcher documented the festival of 'El Hombre de Musgo', and found out, "Camouflaged, they then crawled through the surrounding landscape unseen by the lookouts on the city walls. 

Cross-bred Balloon Creatures

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 14, 2015
We are trying to take in what Sarah Deremer is doing on this project, but we like it. What designboom notes is that "for her digital series ‘balloon zoo’, los angeles-based artist sarah deremer has realized a realistic rendition of childhood-favorite inflatables." So we have balloon sculptures being improved as realistic animals. Okay, we approve...

Everyday Objects, just bigger and pretty amazing

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 14, 2015
We like what is going on here: artist Rómulo Celdrán has taken everyday objects and moments, down to the bite marks on a pen cap, and created larger-than-life sculptures. Not large in a multi-storied sense, but scaled large and with so much detail, so much realistic elements, that its quite incredible.

A Neverending Appreciation for Francesca Woodman

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 14, 2015
You may know that in 1981, at only at the age 22, Francesca Woodman killed herself. You may also know that these works, made with such powerful conviction and vision at such a young age, have had an immense an lasting influence over hundreds if not thousands of photographers since. This work continues to amaze us, and we wanted to look at some today.
