ACME BROOKLYN: This Event May Be Occurring In Another Context @ La Fabrica Gallery, NYC

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 25, 2014
We had the pleasure of attending the opening reception of a group show at La Fabrica Gallery. This Event May Be Occurring In Another Context, is a collective art show created by ACME Brooklyn to create a community between Mexico and USA. ACME Brooklyn is an art project that aims to display the artistic production of a specific context. A group of artists from the emerging and established art scenes of Mexico and New York are invited to express views on the meaning of cultural displacement and the interpretation of identity in over-populated cities that geographically distance origins.

"IRÉEL" by Flora Borsi

Photography // Friday, July 25, 2014
In her latest series, IRÉEL, photographer Flora Borsi continues to explore photo-manipulation and conceptual photography, this time electing a more tangible approach to her experimentations. Appropriating broad, abrasive brushstrokes, Borsi creates a beautifully effacing aesthetic that refocuses the viewer’s attention, resists definition, and instead resides in a hyperrealisitc realm between acrylic portraiture and photography. 

Geoff McFetridge for Krooked

Design // Friday, July 25, 2014
Our September 2013 cover aritst and all around great designer and artist Geoff McFetridge created a limited edition skate deck for Krooked recently, and the guys made a video profile to accompany it. We are sure that the deck may already sold out, but you can learn a thing or two from Geoff in the meantime.

A look inside "Paradigm Vol. 1 - Genesis"

Photography // Friday, July 25, 2014
What do Wes Lang, Noam Chomsky, Glenn O’Brien, Lance Mountain and Erik Brunetti all have in common? Nothing in particular besides being exceptionally talented in their respected fields, however they all contributed to the new independently published 343-page hardcover book, Paradigm Vol. I – Genesis. 

amy elkins's "Lucas"

Photography // Friday, July 25, 2014
Amy Elkins photographed Lucas from the time she met him at a wedding, aged 13, every three to four months since. A “longitudinal portrait”, the images quietly record changes in his face and activities. Reminiscent of rummaging through your childhood wardrobe, his shirts change from jerseys to band tees and then back to blank fabrics.

Early Days by Paul McCartney

Music // Friday, July 25, 2014
Forming a band usually starts with a friend ready to jam, ready to mess around to find the right sounds that mesh, but the members don’t always mesh. Through the ups and downs, a musical camaraderie forms and a band blossoms. Paul McCartney expresses this in Early Days, describing his bond with John Lennon all the while hoping to inspire all young musicians in the spirit of music and expression.

Takayuki Ogawa's 3D Oral Alphabet

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 25, 2014
Horrific, eerie, frightening, and strange Takayuki Ogawa freezes the alphabet in time with oral expressions as three dimensional clay moldings. Oral:phabet is grotesquely and disturbingly realistic displaying mouths, teeth, lips, and tongues but revolving around the portrayal of each letter uniquely. Ogawa designed the English alphabet with inspiration from emotions, as was the motivation for his graduating thesis from Tama Art University.
