Banksy "Better Out Than In" Full Recap

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 31, 2013
And so you have it, 31 days in October, 31 pieces/moments of art from Banksy, one city that is New York, and now it is over. Whether you loved it, hated it, felt inspired by it, Banksy took over the art world (well, pop culture world, really) for a month on the biggest stage, and left piece #31 and its companion audio as a reminder of why street art, graffiti, public art, whatever it is you want to call it, in whatever form you find it, do it, see it, is an important historical identifier of who we are as humans... enjoy a little recap of Better Out Than In. 

Tom Waits & John Baldessari, October 2013

Vault // Thursday, October 31, 2013
Seeing that it is Halloween, and Tom Waits dressed in a mask for our October 2013 cover story, and he played his first concert performance in a half decade this past weekend at the Bridge School Benefit in the Bay Area, we wanted to share the October 2013 cover story conversation between Tom Waits and John Baldessari. Their talk did have its own mysteries, own storylines, so it seems absolutely appropriate to read this story today. 

Wes Lang "Blessings" @ HALF Gallery, NYC

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 31, 2013
Wes Lang is always putting together some bodies of work, the type of paintings that the bad biker guys in Pee Wee Herman's Big Adventure would love. This Fall, Lang will return to HALF Gallery with Blessings, a new body of work that will again look at the history of tattoo flash, imagery from the Old West, and even a little old school pornography. For the kids. We gathered a collection of Lang's work from the past year for you to check out... but go see it in person after November 7th. 

Wood-Cutout Paintings by Nathaniel Russell

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 31, 2013
This past April in our print edition, we featured the paintings and works of Indianapolis-based Nathaniel Russell. We have always loved his fake flyer and book series, but now we love seeing his newest body of work... taking his painting style and creating wood cutout pieces from them. Or of them. From them of them. You get it. The pieces now reside in the garden of Service Center in Indianapolis, Indiana. Russell notes that he would like to "make a lot more of these until I am dead." Hey we got Halloween in there!

Thinkspace is is pleased to present new works by Ariel DeAndrea in Dreams Of Flight.

A Modern Dance of Death: A portfolio of prints by Joseph Sattler

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 31, 2013
Just in time for Halloween, we are loving this series of prints by German artist Joseph Sattler (1867-1931) that 50watts put up. Sattler was regarded as one of the leading pioneers of Art Nouveau. After an apprenticeship as a painter and gilder with his father, Joseph studied in Munich and worked as a freelance artist creating posters and other illustrations.

Paintings by Michael Reedy

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 31, 2013
Michael Reedy's desire to extend beyond historical modes of representation has led him to be increasingly interested in "depictions of the body that fall outside the canon of art history, namely in cartooning and medial illustration."

Trailer: "Is The Man Who is Tall Happy" from Michel Gondry & Noam Chomsky

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 31, 2013
Michel Gondry, who has directed some of our favorite films and music videos (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Science of Sleep) is releasing a unique animated documentary on the life of controversial MIT professor, philosopher, linguist, anti-war activist and political firebrand Noam Chomsky.Through complex, lively conversations with Chomsky and brilliant illustrations by Gondry himself, the film reveals the life and work of the father of modern linguistics while also exploring his theories on the emergence of language.

Neil Craver's Lucid Void

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 31, 2013
Seductively unsettling, the transcendental and consuming works of Neil Craver hint at the subliminal sensations between drowning, floating, helplessness and the infinite sensuality of weightlessness.
