Tracey Emin "My Bed 1998" @ Tate Britain

Juxtapoz // Friday, April 24, 2015
Tracey Emin made My Bed 1998 in her Waterloo council flat in 1998. Emin’s own bed covered in stained sheets, discarded condoms, underwear and empty bottles of alcohol created an unconventional self-portrait, which was shortlisted for the 1999 Turner Prize. The Duerckheim Collection acquired the work in early July 2014 and it is now on loan to Tate for 10 years. My Bed 1998 runs at Tate Britain until June 2016 and then will be shown at Turner Contemporary in Margate, Emin’s home town, followed by Tate Liverpool allowing audiences outside of London a glimpse of recent British art.

New Works by Lisa Yuskavage @ David Zwirner, NYC

Juxtapoz // Thursday, April 23, 2015
Lisa Yuskavage has always been one of our favorite artists working in the blue chip world of contemporary art, because we always felt like she connected with some of the greats of both fine artwork, pop-culture, and almost erotic surrealism that we have covered for the last few decades. And her new show, opening on April 23 at David Zwirner's beautiful space in Chelsea, is a stunning collection of paintings, both incandescent and fairy tale enchanting.

Juxtapoz // Thursday, April 23, 2015
Maybe you have noticed in the print magazine, but Lagunitas Brewing Company, creators of some very fine ales, IPAs, pilsners, and a very nice Little Sumpin' Ale that we here at the Juxtapoz office really enjoy, have been creating interactive ads that ask for art submissions. Back in the April Issue, aka the "Bjork" issue, Lagunitas gave readers a black canvas and said go at it, and while you are going at it, submit your work to juxart@lagunitas.com. They got a lot of submissions. Even our editor's grandfather submitted. Here are some of our favorites. 

Todd James "Fantasy Island" @ Lazarides, London

Juxtapoz // Thursday, April 23, 2015
No secret here that Juxtapoz loves the work of Todd "REAS" James. He has been on the cover 2x, been covered in various stages of his career, and love seeing his work evolve with each show. On May 1st, James will open "Fantasy Island" at Lazarides in London in their Rathbone space. From the gallery, "The vivid body of hyper-coloured works extends the artist's exploration into current socio-political affairs, continuing to stretch the boundary between the obscene and the humorous." We agree.
