Jeffrey Deitch Leaving MOCA... Announcement Tomorrow?

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 23, 2013
When Jeffrey Deitch decided to close his namesake Deitch Projects gallery in NYC in 2010 to take over as the director of the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) in Los Angeles, there were grumblings, mixed with general excitement, and perhaps some sort of anticipation that a blueprint would be established for struggling institutions in the coming years. The idea seemed innocent enoug: hire a high-powered, independent galleriest/curator to help create a program and direction for museum's to exist in an increasingly difficult era for major museums to hold the public's interest, and money, for more than one show a year. Well, this experiment may officially be over, as the LA Times is reporting Deitch will be leaving the MOCA for NYC ... 

Robert Williams in conversation with Kenny Scharf, July 2013

Vault // Tuesday, July 23, 2013
We are still buzzing from our week at Comic-Con, and one of the reasons is that we were able to witness the brand new sculpture that Robert Williams created with the help of Gentle Giant Studios. For the July 2012 issue, we paired Robert with old friend Kenny Scharf (who also had sculptures made with Gentle Giant for his newest solo at Paul Kasmin in NYC) to discuss not only their respective collabs with GGS, but also their historical perspectives on sculpture and how their sculptures pair up against art history.

Niagara Falls... as seen through the lens of a DJI Phantom quadcopter

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 23, 2013
When this video was sent to us the morning, with the simple YouTube description of "The Niagara Falls filmed from a DJI Phantom with a GoPro Hero 3," we knew it was going to be something of interest, or at least a good way to waste about 3.5 minutes. Then we cranked up the 1080 resolution, turned up the volume, and had a surreal few moments that made us have to pee and want to go to Niagara Falls.

Marbelous Wood by Snedker Studios

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 23, 2013
We think our room would look pretty amazing if it was floored in some of this Marbelous Wood. It reminds us of a Kelsey Brooks painting. Part of a series of wood adorned with a marbling pattern technique known from old book covers. "The transparent marbling pattern merges with the wood, entering into a dialogue with the inherent ornation of wood."
