The final event was held in the evening at the Lo_Fi Performance Gallery where a good crowd gathered to watch the artists do their thing. The tour is scheduled to pick up again in October with two weeks of East Coast dates so check back soon for dates and locations.
Juxtapoz never shies away from a little controversy, and the November 2014 issue featuring a cover story and the works South African-based photographer Roger Ballen. This cover, let's just get right to it: it's disturbing, haunting, intriguing, and yet part of a compelling body of work that Ballen has been building for decades. We are proud to have him on the cover and to tell his unique story.
