Juxtapoz Presents @ SF DocFest Film Festival: Long Gone John

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, June 10, 2015
As we mentioned yesterday on the site, on Saturday, June 13 at 7pm at the Roxie Theatre in San Francisco, SF DocFest film festival will premiere “Juxtapoz Presents: Art Shorts," a program of short documentaries that spotlight artists and works featured in recent issues of Juxtapoz. From Olek and Sucklord, Robert Williams to the Mission School, to the world premiere of a new short of Cheech Marin, this should be a great night. A few months ago, we premiered this short on Long Gone John, one of the great art collectors we have ever encoutered, and here is a little reminder about it!

Jurassic Park as an 8-bit Game

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, June 10, 2015
Because I still have the intense memories of seeing the original and always-will-be-the-best "Jurassic Park" in a movie theater, I probably will be a little disappointed by the new installment of the Park legacy that opens this Friday, "Jurassic World."

Erotica // Wednesday, June 10, 2015
We have been following the photography of Logan White for a long time, and again, through the fantastic new book, Desire: New Erotic Photography (Prestel), we came across her series, "LA Nudes." Logan has always created a very surreal experience when it comes to her subjects, and as you can see from her exhibition history, she has taken the work to a fine art level. Great stuff.
