ArtNet's Contemporary Color Photography Auction now through March 31, 2015

Photography // Monday, March 23, 2015
Our friends at artnet just launched a new Contemporary Color Photography auction today with some pretty damn solid photographers on the roster. Alex Prager (above), Ryan McGinley, Ed Templeton, Cindy Sherman, Marilyn Minter, and Nan Goldin are just some of the names available. As you know from both our print and web editions of Juxtapoz, we think quite fondly of photography in this digital age, so get bidding. 

Jean Jullien "Poor Traits" @ HVW8 Gallery, LA

Juxtapoz // Monday, March 23, 2015
We are huge fans of Jean Jullien on this site, hopefully cooking something up with him in the print edition in the coming months. Now, he opens a solo show at HVW8 Gallery in Los Angeles this Friday, March 27. In Poor Traits Jean Jullien has asked friends, artists, collaborators, and various facets of his network to submit their image to be redrawn by him with his authorial style. This is a personal assessment of his subjects’ pasts from their immediate mannerisms, filtered, and transcribed in Jullien’s distinctive hand. 

Olek in Delhi

Juxtapoz // Monday, March 23, 2015
Only the mighty Olek could create a breathtaking, back-breaking installation the size of a house and still look gorgeous and powerful during every second of the process. Always representing her work from head to toe, her art is truly an extension of her being, in both concept and aesthetics. We were lucky to catch up with her last year for our February 2014 issue, and have watched with awe since then as she travels the world, creating socially-conscious, spectacular visions of cultures woven together and inextricably linked, just like every stitch in her massive, color-saturated public artworks. 

David Altmejd's Nightmarish Sculptures

Juxtapoz // Monday, March 23, 2015
Montreal-born, NY-based artist David Altmejd "works in direct contact with psychic flux. In his "definitive dreamer's" world action and consciousness merge: he dominates the grotesque and the abject, combines aesthetics and 'glamour' and uses his sculptures to explore the worlds of dream and nightmare in a mingled ambience of fascination and terror."

Skinner "Seduction of The Innocent" @ Vinyl on Vinyl, Manila

Juxtapoz // Monday, March 23, 2015
We just sent Skinner to Santa Cruz to do an interview that will be published in the July issue of Juxtapoz. In the meantime, apparently Asia is apparently about to get a Skinner storm...

Connecting the Dots: Sandro Baebler Photographs Kazu

Juxtapoz // Monday, March 23, 2015
One of the most gratifying aspects of being both an artist and a writer is connecting creative people together. I was sitting at my favorite cafe, probably writing something like this, when Oskar, my furry ball and chain started yanking the leash which I had attached to my ankle. Delighted foreign voices emanated from a young Swiss couple who had taken an interest in my pooch. This was my introduction to Sandro Baebler the photographer and his girlfriend and assistant Anja.

Marty Machado: Six Months At Sea In The Merchant Marine

Juxtapoz // Monday, March 23, 2015
In this short documentary, Martin Machado, who is featured in our April 2015 issue, tried to answer some of the common questions that he usually gets about the time he spends on ships. "The footage I took myself using fairly basic cameras that I could fit in my pocket while I was on the job as a deckhand. The story follows me on my six month journey around the world on a container ship which was on a run between New York and Singapore via the Suez Canal.
