ART ALLIANCE: THE PROVOCATEURS, Chicago, July 31—August 4, 2014

Juxtapoz // Monday, July 21, 2014
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.

"FOLKLORE" Group Exhibition curated by Evan Hecox @ Joshua Liner, NYC

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 10, 2013
Joshua Liner Gallery is pleased to present FOLKLORE, an exhibition of handcrafted works that celebrate the simple and direct experience of visual enjoyment. Curated by gallery artist Evan Hecox (cover artist, August 2012) and featuring artists from the United States, England, and France, FOLKLORE offers a view of contemporary practice that synthesizes art, design, and photography into a new vernacular. Created across a range of media, these works are catchy and infectious like a summer pop song, while drawing viewers into underlying ideas about modern life.

Evan Hecox, August 2012

Vault // Monday, March 04, 2013
There is a duality in the work of Evan Hecox. Each piece of art is instantly recognizable as his, from skate graphics to fine art pieces, there is a command of style unlike any artists I can recall. Secondly, the viewer recognizes a location and history in the paintings—his street corner signage—the storefronts are abstract but familiar.
