Tracey Emin "My Bed 1998" @ Tate Britain

Juxtapoz // Friday, April 24, 2015
Tracey Emin made My Bed 1998 in her Waterloo council flat in 1998. Emin’s own bed covered in stained sheets, discarded condoms, underwear and empty bottles of alcohol created an unconventional self-portrait, which was shortlisted for the 1999 Turner Prize. The Duerckheim Collection acquired the work in early July 2014 and it is now on loan to Tate for 10 years. My Bed 1998 runs at Tate Britain until June 2016 and then will be shown at Turner Contemporary in Margate, Emin’s home town, followed by Tate Liverpool allowing audiences outside of London a glimpse of recent British art.

Illuminated Installation by Julien Salaud

Juxtapoz // Friday, April 24, 2015
French artist Julien Salaud uses cotton thread coated with ultraviolet paint to weave impressive luminescent creatures, creating an intricate illuminated tapestry held up with thousands of nails. Geometric bears, deers, felines and other animals remind us of constellations, perhaps a new mythology.

New Works by Lisa Yuskavage @ David Zwirner, NYC

Juxtapoz // Thursday, April 23, 2015
Lisa Yuskavage has always been one of our favorite artists working in the blue chip world of contemporary art, because we always felt like she connected with some of the greats of both fine artwork, pop-culture, and almost erotic surrealism that we have covered for the last few decades. And her new show, opening on April 23 at David Zwirner's beautiful space in Chelsea, is a stunning collection of paintings, both incandescent and fairy tale enchanting.

JuxArt @ Lagunitas: What We Like

Juxtapoz // Thursday, April 23, 2015
Maybe you have noticed in the print magazine, but Lagunitas Brewing Company, creators of some very fine ales, IPAs, pilsners, and a very nice Little Sumpin' Ale that we here at the Juxtapoz office really enjoy, have been creating interactive ads that ask for art submissions. Back in the April Issue, aka the "Bjork" issue, Lagunitas gave readers a black canvas and said go at it, and while you are going at it, submit your work to juxart@lagunitas.com. They got a lot of submissions. Even our editor's grandfather submitted. Here are some of our favorites. 

Todd James "Fantasy Island" @ Lazarides, London

Juxtapoz // Thursday, April 23, 2015
No secret here that Juxtapoz loves the work of Todd "REAS" James. He has been on the cover 2x, been covered in various stages of his career, and love seeing his work evolve with each show. On May 1st, James will open "Fantasy Island" at Lazarides in London in their Rathbone space. From the gallery, "The vivid body of hyper-coloured works extends the artist's exploration into current socio-political affairs, continuing to stretch the boundary between the obscene and the humorous." We agree.

Storms, Beautiful Storms by Mitch Dobrowner

Photography // Thursday, April 23, 2015
These are just stunning photos, not only because of the power of nature, but of the accomplished skill and timing by which photographer Mitch Dobrowner. These storms are fierce, almost unearthly if you think about it, but only something that the earth could create with such force and beauty, danger and size. Mitch, you are amazing. 

A History of Pulp, PG-13 Erotica, and Illustration in One Auction

Erotica // Thursday, April 23, 2015
Well this is a lot of fun. A few years ago, you may remember Juxtapoz printing a cover story on Hard Case Crime, a book publisher bringing back the pulp vibes and a little salacious fun of times of past. Well, Heritage Auctions has a crazy auction of Illustrative Art that covers both the past and present in pulp art, naughty things, and just some classic illustrations. From Dink Siegel, Hilo Chen, and the 1980's vibes of Patrick Nagel, this auction is classic. 

Surreal Salon 7: A Parade for Pop Surrealism With a Side of Southern Comfort

Juxtapoz // Thursday, April 23, 2015
Barbecue, Bourbon Street and the Blues—we’ve covered Louisiana, right? Wade a little deeper into the Bayou, though, and you just might wander into something very Southern and very surreal, as in, the Surreal Salon, which just exulted its seventh salute of all permutations pop and lowbrow. What started out as one night featuring local artists has grown into a festival offering the region’s hospitality to art lovers of every age and background. This year, interactive was more than an adjective, as attendees played in the funhouse installation by artist collective Elevator Projects. The puppets of Quintron and Miss Pussycat cavorted amidst the electronic music of RAV3N, and of course, everyone was in costume, and hurray for homemade!
