For the last 20 years, Juxtapoz Art and Culture Magazine has stood for the outsiders, to create a place and dialogue for artists who stood outside of the museum programming of the time but were creating substantial and amazing work that needed its own historical context. We have been lucky in our 20th year to celebrate special events in NYC and San Francisco, but we are even luckier to get a chance to celebrate with our July 2014 cover artist, Shepard Fairey, as he curates a major public art and exhibition, "Art Alliance: The Provocateurs" in Chicago during Lollapolooza, July 31—August 4, 2014.

A quite nice example of an artist who has worked in abstraction for a few years now with minimal figurative elements going fully into abstract expressionist work with great results. Currently showing at Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld in NYC is this untitled solo exhibition of 24 new paintings by Clare Rojas. As the gallery notes, "It is Rojas’s first showing in New York since her hiatus from painting and this reintroduction reveals her evolution into the visual language of abstract expression."

Our friend Henrik Haven stopped by the new Clare Rojas exhibition at Galleri Nicolai Wallner in Copenhagen this past weekend. As we have seen in a past exhibition at PRISM in Los Angeles, the San Francisco-based artist has moved away from her more figurative folk works into more abstract, minimalist explorations in color and shape.

This past weekend Clare Rojas’ latest exhibition opened up at Prism gallery in Los Angeles. Entitled Pith, this body of paintings signals a further exploration for Rojas, in respect to both subject and materiality. In this exhibition, we observe the artist’s concentration on abstract space and the blurring between architectural dimensionality and geometric flatness. Photos and more after the jump…

San Francisco's Electric Works just opened a new show with Geoff Chadsey titled shift, return. We don't know about you, but a little androgyny and male nudity never hurt anyone. More after jump . . .

We hate thieves, especially when it’s amazing art they’re taking. Two pieces of art by Barry McGee and Clare Rojas were recently stolen from San Francisco’s Pressure exhibit at the RVCA store on Haight Street. To make matters worse, both pieces are from permanent, private collections with a great deal of sentimental value to the artists. Lame. Thanks to our friend at sketchypad.com for the info.
