Bringing it Back: Chris Lindig

Erotica // Thursday, October 10, 2013
Dipping back to the year 2005 with a series of work from Chris Lindig's show at Loyal Gallery entitled 'We Are Psychology.' I decided to re-visit his work today, as it has reigned as one of my favorites, even after all these years. This is just a small selection of works from Lindig, with the usual epic nudity and crass rendered skill.

David Shrigley "Big Shoes" @ BQ, Berlin

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 10, 2013
We like to say old friend David Shrigley, because when he showed in our backyard of YBCA in SF last year, we did a fantastic interview with the British artist. Last month, Shrigley was in Berlin to open Big Shoes at BQ. The artist is well known to the wider public for his cartoons, books and films and recently has been nominated for this year’s Turner Prize. In his fifth exhibition at BQ, he mainly presents sculptural objects, next to a new series of works on paper.

Sao Paulo-based fine aritst Thais Beltrame, who we have featured in the magazine and profiled on the site in the past, is set to open a brand new solo show, Where I'm Not (Onde Não Estou) at Galeria Movimento in Rio de Janeiro, tonight, October 10.

Yayoi Kusama's "The Obliteration Room"

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 10, 2013
We have seen some fantastic exhibitions from Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama in the past. Last December's was no exception. As part of her "Look Now, See Forever" Yayoi built and painted a domestic environment white and invited children to cover the entire thing in colorful dot stickers. By the time two weeks had passed, there was very little white left!

The release follows several other print releases and another fantastic collaboration with another Jux favorite, Alex Grey.
