Tara McPherson "Wandering Luminations" @ Jonathan LeVine Gallery, NYC

This past Saturday night in NYC, we headed over to Jonathan LeVine Gallery to check out the openings of Tara McPherson, Adam Wallacavage, and Japanese painter Masakatsu Sashie.

Idiots

Juxtapoz // Monday, October 21, 2013
We don't think these Dutch artists are Idiots, this is actually their name. In fact, they are far from Idiots, as we are finding some of their works to be quite fantastic metaphors and interpretations of common knowledge. 

Banksy "Better Out Than In" Day 12—21 Recap

Juxtapoz // Monday, October 21, 2013
Since the last time we posted about Banksy's month long street residency in NYC, Better Out Than In, we have witnessed a few pieces going up in NYC (or at least part of the masses going to see the pieces) and see the backlash of a certain Mayor Bloomberg making his comments about "urban decay." Banksy has given us a confessional, Ronald McDonald's wage reenactment, a Central Park painting sale, a pop-up outdoor show with Os Gemeos under the High Line, and of course, trying to staying Ghetto 4 Life. 

"Surveying the Terrain" @ CAM Raleigh, North Carolina

Juxtapoz // Monday, October 21, 2013
On a recent visit to see family in North Carolina, I checked out the Contemporary Art Museum in Raleigh just as they were preparing to install their block buster show: “Surveying the Terrain.” Standing amongst a herd of pachyderm-sized crates of Maya Lin’s work, was Marjorie Hodges the museum director. . .

Graffiti // Monday, October 21, 2013
Black and white, low light, super 8, grainy and a good way to start your Sunday.  This classic super 8 footage of AOK members Reas, Ven and Mesh, painting the New York subway in the late ‘80s is a rare find.

An 11-Acre Portrait by Jorge Rodriguez-Gerada

Juxtapoz // Monday, October 21, 2013
Cuban-American artist Jorge Rodriguez-Gerada recently revealed this 11-acre portrait of an anonymous girl made by plotting a grid with Topcon GPS technology and then placing 30,000 stakes in Belfast's Titanic Qurter. Volunteers then placed almost 8 million pounds of soil, sand, and rock to complete the final portrait!

The Work of Hayv Kahraman

Juxtapoz // Monday, October 21, 2013
To Iraqi artist Hayv Kahraman, "the body as object and as subject has a central function within his work."  Kahraman's paintings explore the victimization and displacement of women and 'social spatiality in which notions of hybridity, Diaspora and the third space are prevalent."

Geoffrey Farmer's Sculptural Collages

Juxtapoz // Monday, October 21, 2013
Canadian artist Geoffrey Farmer's sculpture collage 'Leaves of Grass' takes cultural icons and images from five decades (1935-1985) and 900 issues of LIFE Magazine. It spans 124 feet. "It wasn’t until we had finished making the work that I realized the piece is very much about factory life. Factory farming, the war factory, the death factory, the automobile factory, the Hollywood factory, the personality factory…. History emerging out of a factory. In the end, it takes on the appearance of a conveyor belt."
