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?”

"Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich" by Sandro Miller

Photography // Wednesday, September 24, 2014
“John is the most brilliant, prolific person I know. His genius is unparalleled. I can suggest a mood or an idea and within moments, he literally morphs into the character right in front of my eyes. He is so trusting of my work and our process… I’m truly blessed to have him as my friend and collaborator.” Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich honors photographs that have impacted Sandro. Pieces include Irving Penn’s photograph of Truman Capote in a corner; Bert Stern’s photographs of Marilyn Monroe...

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, September 24, 2014

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.
