Juxtapoz // Wednesday, November 07, 2012
The end of year brings us to our closing issue of 2012, and who better than London-based Conor Harrington to grace the cover for a second time (scoring at home, October 2008 was his first cover). We lean heavily on painters and fine artists this issue with pieces on Nicola Verlato, Futura, Julie Heffernan, Marco Mazzoni, Grady Gordon, and Gregory Euclide, plus conversations with Jen Stark, Bob Dob, and a photo essay from the heart of Johannesburg.

Funny to think, we are getting ourselves into the "end of the year" season, where we gear up for holidays and top-10 lists and reviews aplenty. And here we are, announcing our December 2012 cover artist, Conor Harrington. What a year the London-based Harrington has had: stand-out show, brilliant street works, all the while turning himself into quite the production house. Here is a look at the cover...

We just got back from London where we had a little discussion with Conor Harrington of which you can see in the December 2012 issue of the magazine. While there, we saw Harrington's two new pieces, now on display at Lazarides' Bedlam show. Just as he prepared his Dead Meat work, there was a photoshoot with models for the new pieces, and Harrington just released a new video of the behind-the-scenes footage of the shoot. Go watch...

For the past 3 years, as the art world has descended upon London for the Frieze Art Fair, Lazarides Gallery has descended below the city streets to put on Bedlam, in our opinion one of the best exhibitions a non-fair can offer in a during a heavily Art Fair environment. For the third and final year, Bedlam is being held in the Old Vic Tunnels, and we went to investigate.

For the thrid and final year, Lazarides Gallery in London is set to take over the Old Vic Tunnels underneath Waterloo Station with the exhibition, Bedlam. The interactive, site-specific installation coincides with the Frieze Art Fair, for what we like to call a significant, if not alternative way to see art as opposed to a big hall with booths. This you may see a rat... the show opens October 9.
