Don't get us wrong. Conceptual artists are some of our favorites. Sol Lewitt, John Baldessari, Laurence Weiner, Eleanor Antin, among many others have all produced some of the most beautiful, thought-provoking, and enjoyable works we have seen, but there is plenty of conceptual art out there (some of it not quite as obviously fantastic as others).

"My work focuses on altering the human form by affecting its figure with just one simple intervention. Photos of the human body are printed onto translucent silk which will create the possibility of physically layering different body’s, ages, generations and identities..."

We want everyone to enjoy themselves and stay away from computers today, but just in case you happen to find yourself roaming the web between eating and watching NBA games and a Christmas Story, enjoy this Christmas message from Markus Reugels. Have a great day from everyone at Juxtapoz.

This could come in handy on those awkward dinner time arguments, or better yet, a really bad date. Michael Beitz has created the "avoid conversation dining table," featuring a central hump in the middle to obstruct the diner at the other end of the table. You will now be speaking to a piece of wood.

We woke up this morning to a unique update in our mailbox, a friend sending us pictures of the incredible hair sculptures by French hairdreseer, Tress Agoche. The artists note, "it is a vision of a new era which gives birth to an evolved future where the audience experiences the gift that is woman. In this, we create a capsule of work that becomes timeless and unbound, a vision for future observers to witness. Indefinite and inevitable, this future will exist."

In a recent article on What's Hot, What's Not, Frieze Magazine mentioned inhabiting a transgendered space as grounds for an art practice that is hot right now. While this series of photoshopped images likely does not fit the kind of transgendered space Frieze is thinking of, it still occupies a strange and emasculating view on some of the more recognizable male faces of Hollywood.

Architectural space frames and guides the average urban lifestyle, providing the forums through which we move, interact and live. In these vacated masterworks originally painted by Jacques-Louis David, Leonardo Da Vinci, and Fra Angelico, Hajdu Bence opens up the space, allowing us to see it stripped of its character-driven narratives, removing our attention from the animated figures...

Bethan Huws' work is relatively straightforward. With titles like Dates are Important, Black and White Animals, Digressive Biscuits, and Onion on a Swing, it is pretty clear what is going on, but then, it's also peculiar, humorous, and you might even say poetic.

Carl Kleiner's work always grabs our attention. HIs design aesthetic is a truly captivating combination of simple yet bold compositions and subtle attention to detail. On a very basic level, he knows how to make things look good. Even popsicles made of hard, inedible materials.

Earlier this year, our good friends, the German art duo of Herakut, collaborated on a special project with the performers from Lucent Dossier in The Lucent Dossier Experience – When Lucent Found Herakut at the downtown Los Angeles space, the Palace Theater. The collaborative project brought together acrobats, contortionists, aerial dancers, stilt walkers with Herakut's art. And now, we have a video of the project...
