Juxtapoz // Thursday, November 15, 2012
There will be debate, and plenty of happy/angry people surrounding Disney and Sam Raimi's new prequel to the landmark 1939 masterpiece, The Wizard of Oz, the James Franco starring Oz: the Great and Powerful. Adapted from L. Frank Baum's 1900 novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, the film will follow Oz' life prior to our meeting of him in the 1939 film. So we time travel together: 1939 to 2013, back to pre-1939.

An artist we are prepping a feature on for the print magazine, Mark Moore Gallery proudly presents Terraformer, an inaugural exhibition of paintings by Brooklyn-based artist, Jean-Pierre Roy.

The Photography of Maciek Jasik (NSFW)

Juxtapoz // Thursday, November 15, 2012
We have been in a bit of a psychedelic mood on the site in recent days, and when we came across the work of Polish-born, Brooklyn-based photographer Maciek Jasik this morning, we knew we found something that definitely hit us right in the heart. Beautiful portrait compositions, with a sense of mystery behind a rainbow haze.

Juxtapoz // Thursday, November 15, 2012
Normally we would think a room full of hundreds or thousands of balloons would be noisy and annoying, but not when German artist William Forsythe is at the helm. The site-specific work, Scattered Crowd, takes the visitor into a dreamlike, fairy-tale-esque landscape. And hopefully, nobody pops a balloon and ruins the tranquility.
