Dave Kinsey "Cushion of Memory" @ Library Street Collective, Detroit

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, September 24, 2014
Library Street Collective in Detroit continues a great string of shows (Kelsey Brookes, Sam Friedman to name a few) with a new solo show of works by California-based Dave Kinsey. As we just read about the show, and what is captured in this short film to preview Kinsey's "Cushion of Memory" show, is "the new exhibit will showcase a brand new body of work as Kinsey takes cues from the likes of the Sequoia National Park — near his home on the west coast — to create deep, abstract landscapes. “Cushion of Memory” opens in Detroit on September 27 and will remain on display at the gallery through November 8."

Kickstart A Film With MADSTEEZ

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, September 24, 2014
Jamie Heinrich and Zac Hug are looking to make a short film staring Mark Paul Deren (aka Madsteez). He is blind in one eye. The premise? When his eye doctor experimentally restores vision to his blind left eye, an artist is only able to create incomplete paintings. What follows is a story about a man who sees colors, shapes, and people differently than he did before, and asks the question from the film’s opening scene: “Where is the moment and how do we know when anything; art, relationships, lunch — when are these things actually finished?”

David Bowie Is @ MCA Chicago

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 23, 2014
David Bowie Is... has to be one of the greatest exhibition names ever. Obviously, it compels you to try and understand what exactly David Bowie is: performance artist, musician, actor, fashion icon, producer, collaborator, and an undeniable pioneering creative. David Bowie is a quintessential avant-garde populist, where theatrics and the concept of the alter-ego are elemental to performance in a myriad of genres in contemporary culture.
