Juxtapoz launched our 20th anniversary year in January 2014 with our Imagination issue and a cover story on Charlie Immer, the painter of what can best be described as skeleton slime. Immer just released a stunning print and opened a brand new show at Cotton Candy Machine in Brooklyn.

Troels Carlsen for Wiibroe Årgangsøl Beer

Design // Friday, December 12, 2014
It is Friday, it is the holidays, and we could use an afternoon beer. And now we are even more thirsty after seeing that Danish artist Troels Carlsen created a unique label design for Danish specialty beer Wiibroe Årgangsøl. This is the 27th time that the company has had a Danish artist create a special label, and Carlsen being one of the best in contemporary Danish art, we love the look.

But the editors here are constantly checking what is happening on the auction scene, and we really like some of the Lots that are up for bidding on the Artnet Urban Art Auction that is live through December 18, 2014.

Behind-the-Scenes of the Making of "Boyhood"

Juxtapoz // Friday, December 12, 2014
Director Richard Linklater's film "Boyhood" was this editor's favorite film of the year, and I don't think I need to make a huge defense of this position. It was a coming-of-age film that actually was shot in-real-time so much as the filming took place across the actual 12 years worth of actor Ellar Coltrane's life. 

Michael Tittel's "Behavior"

Photography // Friday, December 12, 2014
Michael Tittel's ongoing series Behavior is an exploration of human social interaction. Aiming to dissect our lives as both social and solitary beings, Tittel's photographs act as almost a scientific study, revealing subtleties in our behavior that we never notice otherwise. 

Christoper Rimmer's "Amapondo" @ Jan Royce Gallery, Cape Town

Photography // Friday, December 12, 2014
In an interview with photographer Christopher Rimmer, the artist mentions his very special connection with South Africa; “I’m always happy to be in South Africa. I travel here often. I left something of myself here when I left in 1982 and I re-connect with that whenever I return. The photography I have produced in southern Africa is also an expression of that re-connection.”

Cristina Vergano "The Laws of Attraction" @ Woodward Gallery, NY

Juxtapoz // Friday, December 12, 2014
Artist Cristina Vergano depicts wildlife locked in evolutionary struggles for primacy and reproduction. She freely mixes techniques that span from oil painting to collage, and often paints on unexpected found objects. Classical Latin quotes float through her paintings, shedding further meaning and lending a graphic, very contemporary dimension to this new body of work. The result is strong and original, sui generis...

The Typography of Blue Note Album Covers

Design // Friday, December 12, 2014
We've been a little obsessed with typographic album covers lately. It started when we got our hands on the lost James Brown/Bootsy Collins "These Are The J.B.'s" and continued with this article on Creative Review's blog about the typographic covers of Blue Note. The legendary jazz label turns 75 this year and Creative Review looks at the long history of covering its music in "wild typographic expression."
