Juxtapoz // Monday, February 23, 2015
The LA Art Book Fair, presented by the good people of Printed Matter, is one of our favorite art events of the year and a chance for us to check the best in independent publishing, whether it be vintage books, new books, zines, collectibles, and other periodicals. Juxtapoz again will have a booth this year, and along with new mags, old mags, and books, we will release two new zines under the Juxtapoz Editions imprint: Sage Vaughn "Vanitas" and Kristin Farr "Magic Hecksagons."

Matteo Mezzadri’s In-Studio Cities

Photography // Monday, February 23, 2015
In his series “Le Città Minime”, Italian photographer Matteo Mezzadri builds large-scale cityscapes in his studio using bricks as his building blocks. Though the bricks themselves are representational of city skyscrapers, Mezzadri uses his eye for lighting and camera positioning to breathe new life into his constructions.

Phil Hale "Life Wants to Live" @ Jonathan LeVine Gallery, NYC

Juxtapoz // Monday, February 23, 2015
Jonathan LeVine Gallery is pleased to present Life Wants to Live, a series of new works by Massachusetts-born, London-based artist Phil Hale in what will be his debut solo exhibition at the gallery.

Dan McPharlin's "Analog Miniatures"

Music // Monday, February 23, 2015
We've previously admired Australian artist Dan McPharlin's incredible science fiction album covers (Prefuse 73, Pretty Lights). This series of sculptures by the artist are his attempt to pay tribute to early synthesizers and analog recording equipment. Rather than replicating existing machines, the focus was on creating a revisionist history where analogue technology continued to flourish uninterrupted. Each piece was hand-made from framing matt-boards, paper, plastic sheeting, string and rubber bands.

The Rehearsal of Space & the Poetic Impossibility to Manage the Infinite

Photography // Monday, February 23, 2015
In this beautiful series of photos, Portuguese photographer and author Edgar Martins documents over 15 separate facilities of the European Space Agency located across the world. Unlike NASA or CERN, ESA does not have an artist residency program so it is the first time in their history that they have granted an artist exclusive access to all of their facilities, staff, programs, and technology. 

WWI Warships & Razzle Dazzle Camouflage

Juxtapoz // Monday, February 23, 2015
Primarily used during WWI, Dazzle Camouflage was used on Ally warships to make it difficult to estimate a target's range, speed, and heading. Consisting of complex patterns of gemoteric shapes in contrasting colors, interrupting and interseting each other, the technique attracted the notice of artists, including Picasso who notably claimed cubists had invented it.

Reflect Upon This: Nudes in Mirrors by Alva Bernadine

Erotica // Monday, February 23, 2015
These female nudes are of friends, acquaintances and volunteers from the internet. I often trawl charity shops and stores that sell cheap kitsch because I sometimes come across objects and trinkets that may lead to ideas for photos. I came across some small mirrors in a £1 shop. They were selling them for £1 for two. I bought six not knowing what I would do with them...
