Juxtapoz Presents: Gone Again is a visual tour of the elaboratelydecorated surroundings of the legendary art and music collector Long Gone John. Filmed at his estate in the upper woods of Olympia, WA, this short film is a fantastical journey through the maze of John’s aesthetic mind and personal obsessions. John’s spare, singular narration gives voice to an interior monologue set against the backdrop of an optical nirvana. The Treasures of Long Gone John celebrates its 10 year anniversary.

Tonight in Los Angeles, The Seventh Letter Flagship Store and Gallery will be showing a new body of work from Pose, KC Ortiz, Vizie, and Omens. They have worked together collectively for years, so it would make sense they would create a body of work to show as a group. The show, titled “Further/Farther” is a reflection of the collectives influence from psychedelia, youth and popular culture, design, depth, mind-bending colors, and buddhist prayer flags.

Italian artist Andreco was one of our absolute favorite aritsts from the Nuart program this year. With an emphasis on environmental and political themes, Andreco works in multiple genres, including street art, gallery work, and the occasional performance and installation piece. His new show, "From Clouds to Rocks," is up now at Traffic Gallery in Bergamo, Italy, and Andreco summarizes it as "inspired by the natural transformations and the phase transitions between solid, liquid and gaseous states of matter. In particular from gas to solid (deposition) and from solid to gas (sublimation). The show is part of the research work called 'Nature as Art'."
