Art Contemporain Pour Tous (ACPT) Fair, Montreal

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, April 22, 2015
Our friends at Yves Laroche Gallery in Montreal just let us know about a new fair they helped found in the wonderful city of the North that we want you to go to this week and weekend. Last February, four gallery owners met in order to revisit the contemporary art fair formula as it is currently known in Montreal. Spurred by a common desire to present as complete a cross- section of contemporary art movements as possible, they initiated the organization of their own event apart from the one organized by The Contemporary Art Galleries Association (AGAC), of which they are otherwise all active members.

The Magical Universe of Silvia Grav

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, April 22, 2015
There is a wonderful song by the Swedish indie band Miike Snow called "Silvia," that I sort of wanted to sing when I saw the work of Silvia Grav. But I don't know her, and I have a policy that I only sing songs to people I know. But when you look at these photographs and surreal treatments by Silvia Grav, you are transported into a different universe. One that may make you sing. Enjoy the works.  

Nicomi Nix Turner “No God for a Wanderer" @ Paradigm Gallery, Philadelphia

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, April 22, 2015
Nicomi Nix Turner is an artist we have had our eye on for a bit now, and we are happy to see her new body of work, "No God for a Wanderer" at Paradigm Gallery in Philadelphia on April 24—June 6, 2015. As we just learned, Turner was raised in the Pacific Northwest (Southern Oregon to be exact), and her illustrations that connect both nature and human reflect this "understanding of the perfection in nature."

Flying Cars by Sylvain Viau

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, April 22, 2015
Sylvain Viau shot this fun series against the seascape of Cherbourg, France using both his own and his friends’ cars from the ’80s and ’90s. These floating cars in the photo series delightfully combine the past with the future.

The Tormented Figures of Janus Miralles

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, April 22, 2015
Beautiful and melancholy, these new digital illustrations by Janus Miralles are simple yet dynamic. His textural technique transforms the familiar.

The Work of James Bullough

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, April 22, 2015
James Bullough grew up in the suburbs of Washington D.C. where he became enamored with the edgy graffiti popular there. His graffiti and graphic paintings eventually developed into realism and oil painting, and he began to study the techniques of the Dutch Masters. Moving from the U.S. in 2010 to Berlin, Bullough transitioned from photorealistic oil paintings to photorealistic spray-paint murals.

"Washed Up" By Alejandro Durán

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, April 22, 2015
Alejandro Durán, born in Mexico City and currently living Brooklyn, is a multimedia artist examining the fraught intersections of humanity and nature. Durán's project Washed Up, recently honored with the 2015 Project Launch Juror's Award, is more than a series of surreal landscapes. The photo series depicts a new form of colonization by consumerism, where even undeveloped land is not safe from the far-reaching impact of our disposable culture.

Don't Be Afraid of Some Nude Hikers: Photography by Roshan Adhihetty

Photography // Tuesday, April 21, 2015
Really, who is scared of a little nude hiker? They are just trying to get back to their natural state, no pun intended (is that a pun? Is this the right post for puns?). Swiss photographer Roshan Adhihetty has documented a series of men who hike in the nude, free from constraints, poison ivy be damned, examing the relationship between our naked selves and nature around us. Don't be afraid and get out there!
