Watch: "Beauty" Animates Hundreds of Years of Art History

Juxtapoz // Friday, January 17, 2014
A series of well-selected images from the tradition of pictorial beauty are appropriated by Rino Stefano Tagliafierro in this short video bringing to life frozen moments of art history through animation. In this interpretation by Rino Stefano Tagliafierro, this beauty is brought back to the expressive force of gestures that he springs from the immobility of canvas, animating a sentiment lost to the fixedness masterpieces.

"Binding Desire: Unfolding Artists Books" @ Ben Maltz Gallery, Otis College of Art & Design

Design // Thursday, January 16, 2014
One of the beautiful things about appreciated art is that they have a book or exhibition catalogue for almost every genre or artist you love. This office in particular, although we receive a lot of books from wonderful publishers, spends a lot of times, on the road and at home, treasuring and searching for great and unique art books. Not to be redundant, but there is an "art" to the art book, and we are so excited to see the next exhibition at Otis College of Art & Design's Ben Maltz Gallery, "Binding Desire: Unfolding Artists Books."

"Animals With Sharpies": Michael Dumontier & Neil Farber

Juxtapoz // Thursday, January 16, 2014
We can't believe this book release slipped through our grasp last year, as one of our favorite art series of the past few years is Michael Dumontier and Neil Farber's "Animals With Sharpies." Drawn & Quarterly, a great Montreal-based publisher, released the series in book form last year. As the press release states, each painting depicts "an animal holding a sharpie, ostensibly writing a message. These messages are varied in nature: they are political and religious tracts, confessions, recipes, arithmetic problems and more..."

Graced With Light At Grace Cathedral

Juxtapoz // Thursday, January 16, 2014
To celebrate 100 Years of Music at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco, their 2013 Artist in Residence Anne Patterson has adorned the space with her beautiful Graced With Light installation. Patterson envisioned it as "a series of light pathways, connecting heaven and earth, manifest as ribbons. The ribbons carry our prayers, dreams and wishes skyward, and, in turn, grace streams down the ribbons to us."
