Sitting in Front of People for 716 hours and 30 minutes Gets You a Book

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, December 29, 2010
Think about it. To sit in front of 1,500 people for 716 hours and 30 minutes without outwardly expressing herself, as Marina Abramovic did at her historic Museum of Modern Art performance exhibit this past summer, aptly titled "The Artist Is Present," was one of the highlights of the art world in 2010. Maybe it was the highlight. Marco Anelli’s powerful portraits of sitters in front of Abramovic will soon be available in a monograph from Aperture. More information after the jump . . .

A Look Inside TOOLS OF CRIMINAL MISCHIEF

Juxtapoz // Thursday, December 23, 2010
Our longtime contributing writer Roger Gastman (and one of the curators of the MOCA "Art In the Streets" exhibition next Spring) has a new book called Tools of Criminal Mischief that documents various tools of criminal mischief. As Roger puts it, "The danger, history, process, spray cans, magic markers, and the local styles are just a few parts of graffiti that I fixate on. Different aspects interest me at different times, but what always continues to excite me is the oddity - especially pedestrian graffiti and the strange pop-culture references."
