10,000 Helmets Represent Frustration and Rage at the Italian Government

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, February 20, 2013
Complimented by an unrelated 2010 statue of a crude hand gesture, the 10,000 helmets in front of the Milan Stock Exchange represent the number of jobs lost in 2012. The public display of frustration, rage, and disappointment in the Italian government is the work of thousands of workers from all levels of industry from Architects to laborers.

Mike Shine: "Flotsam's Harvest", Act 2... More Riddles

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, February 19, 2013
Our 2013 March cover artist Mike Shine keeps sending us messages from the Flotsam exhibition, and today we are given another proverb that leads us up to the Flotsam's Harvest exhibition this March 16. Now, we have messages about Stanley Kubrick, the 3 Metamorphoses, and planting seeds. You confused yet? Don't be. This all leads . . . to . . .

Banksy for NEKST

Graffiti // Tuesday, February 19, 2013
The loss of graffiti artist NEKST has been felt around the world with countless (and really good) tributes and pieces in honor of the recently passed artist. Even Banksy has joined in the tributes, with a simple, understated animation on his site as you enter the main menu. Good touch.

12 Paintings by Laura Owens @ Ooga Booga #2, Los Angeles

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, February 19, 2013
Definitely a show we are going to see in person if we can, because these stunning nearly 12-foot tall pieces look grand in the new Ooga Booga #2 space in Boyle Heights, Los Angeles. Ooga Booga has always been an epicenter of good art and culture in Chinatown, but this new space, especially with LA-based artist Owens' work in it, looks like it will be a great space for exhibitions in the months to come.

"Ecstasy on Bedsheets" by Diego Beyró

Erotica // Tuesday, February 19, 2013
Diego Beyró's productions are characterized by force, the impact of his images and the coexistence of the academic, craftsmanship and the use of new technologies and devices. Both in his series Orgasms, in which he painted that singular instant of ecstasy on bedsheets, and in his more experimental videos, or his digital work, we see the body as an object of thorough study.

"David Bowie is" @ Victoria and Albert Museum, London

Music // Tuesday, February 19, 2013
With his new upcoming album release The Next Day on the way, we have David Bowie on the brain, and we can't help but reminisce about everything from The Labyrinth to Space Oddity. Coincidentally, accompanying this fondness for Bowie is an exhibition presenting a whole array of the musician and cultural icon's career.

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, February 19, 2013
Maine-based sculptor and artist Jonathan Borofsky's new public art piece, Walking to the Sky, features 10 life-size people walking up a 30-meiter-tall-pole and has been installed permanently in several locations all over the world. In addition to the figures walking up the pole, several onlookers stand at the base gazing up at the sky. Made of stainless steel and resin, the sculpture is "a symbol for our collective search for wisdom and awakened consciousness."
