Preview: Edward Walton Wilcox "The Gilded Tantrum" @ Merry Karnowsky, LA

Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 25, 2013
Merry Karnowsky Gallery is proud to present The Gilded Tantrum, a new exhibition by Edward Walton Wilcox. The Gilded Tantrum is perhaps Wilcox’s most conceptual exhibition thus far: through paintings and installations, it unfolds in picture-book fashion a world of Victoriana as wonderful as it is ineffably mysterious. The exhibition opens Saturday, July 27, in Los Angeles.

Gerry Judah "Porsche Display" @ Goodwood Festival of Speed 2013

Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 25, 2013
How to you honor a going-on venerable and luxury car maker like Porsche at a major car festival in England? Well, Gerry Judah was tasked with creating a monument to the 50th birthday of the 911, and what we came up with was a massive, powerful, defying sculpture that featured 3 911s sprung high above the ground. As Judah noted, "I wanted to show design in a perfect moment." Think he got it.

The Surreal Portraits of Korehiko Hino

Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 25, 2013
We wanted to call these paintings "disturbing" because what appears to be grown humans with really big eyes that would really double well in a horror movie just lead us to want to say "disturbing." So may be suggest getting uncomfortably disturbed by the oil paintings of Tokyo-based Korehiko Hino.

Music Video: Fiona Apple "Hot Knife" directed by Paul Thomas Anderson

Music // Thursday, July 25, 2013
Paul Thomas Anderson is no stranger to making the simple look elegant and breathtaking, with most of his films being minimal on the special effects but maximist on detail and subtle actions. So when he took over the director role for Fiona Apple's "Hot Knife" video, he took the same approach and created a graceful and classic-feeling video treatment. Enjoy. 

Magritte as 8-Bit... SuperMagritte.

Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 25, 2013
I think from time to time we can expose a little fun, Internet art on the site. So whoever is behind this Tumblr/Blog page dedicated to 8-bit Mario-izing Rene Magritte's famous surreal paintings, we say bravo. Mostly what this work does for us is wish we had a Nintendo in the office to play Super Mario Bros 2. That one was our favorite. 

"Adrift": A Timelapse by Simon Christen

Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 25, 2013
Living in San Francisco, spending summers enclosed by a thick layer of fog, many of us in the Juxtapoz office have a love/hate relationship with nature's blanket. But there is such a beauty to the way fog moves through the Golden Gate and covers the surrounding hills and City, and this timelapse really does capture the romance of fog.

David Choe: Afghanistan Tour Diary, the Outtakes

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 24, 2013
On newsstands now, David Choe's Afghanistan Tour Diary graces our August 2013 issue, with photography by Estevan Oriol. To call these "outtakes" is a little misleading; these are all intriguing and fantastic photos from one of the leading photographers in the world. But we couldn't fit everything into the print edition and now have a look at some of the extras that missed print. If you haven't read the Choe feature, we suggest going and getting the issue right now. If you are interested in Afghanistan and all it has to offer, well, try and go there, or at least look at the Choe travel guide.

In L.A.: Push @ Known Gallery

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 24, 2013
This past weekend we stopped by Known Gallery for the opening reception of “Adaptation” and installation by Push. As a part of the Game Changer series, SIMPLE Mobile told Push they wanted to give him a chance to do something he always wanted to do with his art without restriction. Push’s first choice was a to do a three-dimensional installation piece that stretched his skills and the ideas of what people thought of when it came to muralists that cut their teeth on the streets of Los Angeles. Photos and more after the jump…

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 24, 2013
As we did last summer, Juxtapoz is teaming up with the Ace Hotel Palm Springs for a little summer hangout session in the desert. The very hot, pool-oriented, modern architecture desert setting, if you will. Last year Sage Vaughn and Father John Misty headlined the weekend, and this year, Jux is lucky to participate with School Night and Ace Hotel's "Summer School" art and education program, featuring artist-taught workshops with Kozyndan, Michelle Valigura, Marcelo Gomes, Kayla Mattes, and a special print pop-up shop hosted by Poster Child Prints.
