Never Before Published Photos of Studio 54 by Hasse Persson

Photography // Tuesday, March 24, 2015
In 1977, at the height of the disco craze, a club opened at 254 West 54th Street in New York City. Studio 54 was—and, arguably, remains—the world's most renowned and legendary disco. Regularly attended by celebrities such as Andy Warhol, Elizabeth Taylor, Mick Jagger, Bianca Jagger, Jerry Hall, Debbie Harry, Grace Jones, Michael Jackson, Calvin Klein, Elton John, John Travolta, Brooke Shields and Tina Turner, the club fostered an atmosphere of unadulterated hedonism for New York's art and fashion set.

Paintings by Anne Von Freyburg

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, March 24, 2015
The recent works by Anne Von Freyburg explore the operation and inscrutability of aesthetics. The life-size mixed media tableaux show human-like figures in various states of transformation. Following in the footsteps of Western Romanticism, Von Freyburg takes subjective experiences as a starting point for her work. At the same time, she deliberately chooses to apply cliché and symbolic imagery to fit within the new context of the human body.

Jean Jullien "Poor Traits" @ HVW8 Gallery, LA

Juxtapoz // Monday, March 23, 2015
We are huge fans of Jean Jullien on this site, hopefully cooking something up with him in the print edition in the coming months. Now, he opens a solo show at HVW8 Gallery in Los Angeles this Friday, March 27. In Poor Traits Jean Jullien has asked friends, artists, collaborators, and various facets of his network to submit their image to be redrawn by him with his authorial style. This is a personal assessment of his subjects’ pasts from their immediate mannerisms, filtered, and transcribed in Jullien’s distinctive hand. 

Olek in Delhi

Juxtapoz // Monday, March 23, 2015
Only the mighty Olek could create a breathtaking, back-breaking installation the size of a house and still look gorgeous and powerful during every second of the process. Always representing her work from head to toe, her art is truly an extension of her being, in both concept and aesthetics. We were lucky to catch up with her last year for our February 2014 issue, and have watched with awe since then as she travels the world, creating socially-conscious, spectacular visions of cultures woven together and inextricably linked, just like every stitch in her massive, color-saturated public artworks. 

David Altmejd's Nightmarish Sculptures

Juxtapoz // Monday, March 23, 2015
Montreal-born, NY-based artist David Altmejd "works in direct contact with psychic flux. In his "definitive dreamer's" world action and consciousness merge: he dominates the grotesque and the abject, combines aesthetics and 'glamour' and uses his sculptures to explore the worlds of dream and nightmare in a mingled ambience of fascination and terror."

Juxtapoz // Monday, March 23, 2015
We just sent Skinner to Santa Cruz to do an interview that will be published in the July issue of Juxtapoz. In the meantime, apparently Asia is apparently about to get a Skinner storm...
