MaRS (Museum as Retail Space) is a new art space in LA, and their inaugural exhibition featuring work by Raul De Nieves is open for just a couple more days until April 1, so head over there before you miss it. Besides 2D works, Nieves is showing some insane sculptures that take the shape of avant garde shoes and crossover easily into the world of fashion, which is part of the artist’s multi-layered output.

Sanaz Mazinani @ Asian Art Museum, SF http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/sanaz-mazinani-asian-art-museum-sf http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/sanaz-mazinani-asian-art-museum-sf Sanaz Mazinani @ Asian Art Museum, SF
Curator Marc Mayer invited artist Sanaz Mazinani to create a new, site-specific installation at San Francisco’s Asian Art Museum, on view through May 3, 2015. In the artist’s words, “I make large photographic collages that use images relating to the destabilizing effects of war to dissect and puncture our normative experience of the original source. In exploring visual language through a process-insensitive method of creating original patterns, I strive to make sense of media images and how they define our relationship to war.”

The Latest from HOTxTEA http://www.juxtapoz.com/street-art/the-latest-from-hotxtea http://www.juxtapoz.com/street-art/the-latest-from-hotxtea The Latest from HOTxTEA
We’ve always enjoyed the work of HOTxTEA, a street artist who ditched spray cans for yarn who now creates beautiful images, often using color gradients mixed with his simple, graphic installations. The use of yarn is inspired by his grandmother, who taught him to knit.

Amir Fallah "From the Primitive to the Present" @ Charlie James Gallery, LA http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/amir-fallah-from-the-primitive-to-the-present-charlie-james-gallery-la http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/amir-fallah-from-the-primitive-to-the-present-charlie-james-gallery-la Amir Fallah
LA painter Amir Fallah was featured in our magazine last year and we always enjoy keeping up with his latest projects. For a new show at Charlie James Gallery, he created five large-scale paintings inspired by a family’s personal objects he collected from an estate sale in North Hollywood. Incorporating these objects into his imagery, he built a narrative around them through his investigation of the objects, including diaries and home videos, and the new series is the evidence of his process. We asked him a few questions about this new project.

In her latest series “How We See” artist Laurie Simmons explores the notions of beauty, identity, and persona, by photographing close-up portraits of young women; evoking the tradition of the high-school portrait—when teenagers present their idealized selves to the camera.
