Perspective Nudes, Reflections and the Photography of Alva Bernadine (NSFW)

Erotica // Saturday, April 18, 2015
We are getting a kick out of the bizarro scenarios that photographer Alva Bernadine has compiled over his career. He does nudes, but he finds the most uncomfortable and teasing way to present models, sometimes in very confrontational ways, sometimes controversial, and sometimes very public ways. He proclaims "I AM A ONE MAN SUBCULTURE." One should own it.

Juxtapoz // Friday, April 17, 2015
Hiro Kurata is one of our favorite artists working today, with his eclectic mix of Eastern and Western styles, and this consistent baseball uniform motif that you see in each painting. Hiro just opened a solo show, Oh Yes We Did, at The Gallery in Morris/Lakeside, Connecticut, and had a studio visit documentary filmed about his practice. We got the video here, and info on the new show!

Herman Miller Challenge: Designing For The New Office Nomads

Design // Friday, April 17, 2015
Recently, Herman Miller hosted a design competition focused on the idea of a modern, mobile worker. The proposition challenged designers to create a concept that would facilitate individual work in a shared work environment. It questioned designers to think about all of the “stuff” that mobile workers need to access throughout their day and what type of product could be created to aid in their plight.

David Shrigley @ Anton Kern Gallery, NYC

Juxtapoz // Friday, April 17, 2015
In his sixth solo show at Anton Kern Gallery, British artist David Shrigley presents 78 drawings, two sculptures and one animation. The drawings, ink and acrylic on paper in two distinct sizes, depict a variety of situations involving humans, animals, parts of their bodies and other stuff. The sculptures are of two oversized objects, a subtractor (a calculator with limited function keys), and a working telephone that is hooked up to the gallery’s main phone line. The animation in the back gallery is a drawn and slightly altered version of the Sega arcade game, Out Run.

TED PUSHINSKY "Fifty Years of San Francisco Street Photography" @ Mark Wolfe, SF

Photography // Friday, April 17, 2015
Mark Wolfe Contemporary is pleased to present “Fifty Years of San Francisco Street Photography,” an exhibition of never-before-seen images from veteran street photographers Maury Edelstein and Ted Pushinsky, the City’s reigning elder statesmen of the genre. Today, we look at a selection of photos from Ted Pushinsky, who has been in Juxtapoz Magazine in the past. What is cool about this show is that both photographers had never met or encountered one another’s work until this show.

Classic Book Covers of Kurt Vonnegut Novels

Juxtapoz // Friday, April 17, 2015
We may start doing this everytime we need a new book to read. This post began when one of us went to the office book shelf to find a new title to read, and when they got back, they had a Kurt Vonnegut book that sparked a convesation about classic book jacket covers. And then we simply used this thing called Google and found more. Enjoy. 

The Dramatic Works in Water by Tomohide Ikeya (NSFW)

Juxtapoz // Friday, April 17, 2015
We aren't sure about you, but the fear of drowning overwhelms us. Maybe its living by the ocean all our lives, maybe its watching Jaws at the wrong age, or perhaps just the fact that the ocean is a scary ass place where nature always wins. Tomohide Ikeya is an incredible photographer who creates intense scenarios with the help of models and actors that have us both intrigued and stressed in the same breath. This selection is across three series, Wave, Breath, and Moon. To call some of these death shots is sort of an uncomfortable title, but the nudity and odd peace of some of the subjects is quite intense.
