25 Years Ago Today, Jean-Michel Basquiat Died

Juxtapoz // Monday, August 12, 2013
On August 12, 1988, one of the most influential and famed artists to emerge from late 20th Century American art, especially downtown NYC art, combining Neo-expressionist, graffiti, music, and poetry,  died from a heroin overdose at the age of 27. Jean-Michel Basquiat, in his life and in his death, was both a symbol of the power of art and creativity, but also a symbol of the power of the art market. He continues to this day to be a favorite amongst our readers, and art collectors around the world.

Werner Herzog "Hearsay of the Soul" @ The Getty Center, Los Angeles

Juxtapoz // Monday, August 12, 2013
Hearsay of the Soul is film director Werner Herzog's first video art installation. Projected on three adjacent walls and eighteen minutes in length, the five-channel video combines selected landscape etchings by Hercules Segers (Dutch, about 1589–about 1638) with the contemporary avant-garde music of composer/cellist Ernst Reijseger (Dutch, born 1954). The juxtaposition of Segers's lush prints of enigmatic vistas with Reijseger's expressive and experimental music results in a richly layered work that is both intimate and epic.
