Run The Jewels feat. Zack de la Rocha "Close Your Eyes (And Count To F**k)"

Music // Thursday, March 26, 2015
RTJ2 has been one of our favorite albums of the last year and probably has been on repeat in the Juxtapoz office quite frequently. They just released their latest video, directed by A.G. Rojas, for "Close Your Eyes (And Count To Fuck). Featuring Shea Whigham as a police officer (of Boardwalk Empire) and Keith Stanfield as a young black man (Selma), the video is as powerful as the track itself. 

Nue York: Self-Portraits of a Bare Urban Citizen by Erica Simone

Photography // Thursday, March 26, 2015
We have for the last few months tried to figure out who created the "Nue York" series of photographs, and when researching some titles in the Taschen catalog, we came across the name: Erica Simone. And then further research came the realization that she was the one behind this great series of photographs, and we knew the concept was something we wanted to learn more about, and she had a full statement on her site. . . 

Trenton Doyle Hancock "Skin and Bones, 20 Years of Drawing" @ The Studio Museum in Harlem, NYC

Juxtapoz // Thursday, March 26, 2015
We highly recommend going to this show at the Studio Museum in Harlem to see the exceptional works of Trenton Doyle Hancock. From Artsy, the show is an "in-depth mid-career retrospective, Skin and Bones, 20 Years of Drawing examines the extensive body of drawings by Trenton Doyle Hancock. With over 200 works of art, the exhibition explores his imaginative, humorous, and elastic creations in an epic tale of good and evil."

Chris Brunkhart: Borderless Space @ .T.F.R. Gallery, Encinitas

Photography // Thursday, March 26, 2015
Chris’s time in New York City was spent in borderless space. I’m not speaking here in terms of NYC being a hub for global culture and commerce, although it is surely borderless in this respect, too. Rather, his stint in New York City was time spent organizing form, light, meanings, objects, enduring histories and fleeting moments. All of which, more often than not, seemed to present themselves as if melded together without any division between these concepts, without clear distinction between “this” and “that.”

Interview: Janet Delaney "South of Market" @ de Young Museum, SF

Photography // Thursday, March 26, 2015
Hurricane Katrina drenched, decimated and maybe resuscitated New Orleans. The Big Three abandoned Detroit, leaving a place struggling for structure and street lights. A room in San Francisco will buy a house in another urban center. The dynamics of cities is measurable and personal, and Janet Delaney’s South of Market, currently on view at San Francisco’s de Young Museum, documents her firsthand experience as a resident and keen-eyed photographer during the 1970s and ’80s

Suds and Smiles by Samantha Fortenberry

Juxtapoz // Thursday, March 26, 2015
For her "Suds and Smiles" series, Samantha Fortenberry asked her subjects to gather different objects that held meaning to them and then based the rest of the set on their ideas. She also wanted to find a wide variety of people in all shapes and sizes "to display the various form of beauty each person has."

Erik Jones "Color/Full" @ Thinkspace Gallery

Juxtapoz // Thursday, March 26, 2015
Concurrently on view this Saturday in the Thinkspace project room are new works by Erik Jones in Color/Full. Originally from St Petersburg Florida, Jones currently lives and works in New York city. His technically complex mixed-media works combine the figurative with the geometric in seamless collusion and concert. Jones’ hyperrealistic figuration is offset by geometric patterns and momentums that seem to live and breathe as symbiotic organisms.

Pop Life // Thursday, March 26, 2015

SXSW In Pictures: Brock Fetch in Austin

Music // Wednesday, March 25, 2015
While some of us were watching the paint dry on a new Dabs Myla mural, listening to Iceage at the Juxtapoz x Brixton showcase at the Buckshot, or perhaps even enjoying some Spring Breakers over BBQ, some people are hard at work. Juxtapoz-often-contributor and roaming photographer Brock Fetch was all over the place during the SXSW madness, capturing backstage moments, crowd moments, surreal moments, calm moments, and some chaotic moments throughout the week, and he shared some of his photos with us today. 

Yes, We Too Want to See a Mirrored Skyscraper Hotel in the Swiss Alps

Design // Wednesday, March 25, 2015
We like the Swiss Alps. We think they are one of the most beautiful mountain ranges in the world, filled with wonderful resorts with classy coffee and treacherous ski runs. Hell, we would go to Zurich right now (not really the Alps, per se, but you get our drift). So we are very much into the creation of a 381-meter skyscraper hotel, built in Vals, Switzerland, designed by Morphosis Architects.
