“When the US seized Baghdad, the soldiers celebrated by destroying art. Removing contemporary politics, this destruction illustrates how little has changed psychologically in the 1500 years since the barbarian sack of Rome. With one notable difference. Rome was destroyed by uneducated warriors. In Baghdad, the event was stage-managed for TV.” – Matthew Quick

The Connor Brothers "True Love Stories" @ Guy Hepner, Los Angeles

Juxtapoz // Thursday, November 21, 2013
Guy Hepner Gallery in Los Angeles is pleased to announce what is sure to be an interesting exhibition, The Connor Brothers' new work, True Love Stories. Twins Franklyn and Brendan Conner were brought up within a secretive and highly controversial cult known as ‘The Family’. Born out of the hippie movement in 1968 and founded by David Berg ‘The Family’ was an extreme Christian cult whose members believed in something called ‘The System.' Actors River and Joaquin Phoenix were also brought up within the cult... so this should get interesting... 

Clare Rojas @ Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld, NYC

Juxtapoz // Thursday, November 21, 2013
A quite nice example of an artist who has worked in abstraction for a few years now with minimal figurative elements going fully into abstract expressionist work with great results. Currently showing at Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld in NYC is this untitled solo exhibition of 24 new paintings by Clare Rojas. As the gallery notes, "It is Rojas’s first showing in New York since her hiatus from painting and this reintroduction reveals her evolution into the visual language of abstract expression."

Victoria Miro is delighted to present Jules de Balincourt's Itinerant Ones, the first solo exhibition in the UK for the Paris-born, New York- based painter. Known for his carefully constructed paintings that move effortlessly between abstraction and figuration, the imagined and the real, this new body of work sees De Balincourt moving away from direct references to current social, political or popular culture, and instead depicting a world in which indications of specific place or time are absent.
