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.

Galería Javier López in Madrid is about to open what looks like an epic group show, "Knock Knock," that basically runs the entire roster of every fantastic comic-book inspired artist we have ever covered. From Charles Burns to Daniel Clowes, Erik Parker and REAS, Gary Panter and Kaws, Keiichi Tanaami to Ed Templeton, Nara and Faile, this looks to be one of the absolute standout exhibitions of the summer.

And finally, the art. We are so proud of all the artwork that is on exhibit in "Art Truancy: Celebrating 20 Years of Juxtapoz Magazine," open at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in NYC through June 14, 2014. It blows our mind that we are now two decades old, but what is even more amazing are all the artists that have been in our pages over those years. Their works tell the story, create the chance to document alternative art narratives, bring out the fans, bring out the collectors, and keep the creative energy of Juxtapoz alive. Here, then, is all the art in "Art Truancy."

As you may already know, or maybe you were there, but Juxtapoz celebrated a special 20th birthday exhibition, "Art Truancy: Celebrating 20 Years of Juxtapoz Magazine" at Jonathan LeVine Gallery this past week in NYC. We were excited to see old friends, new friends, artists, curators, editors, and anyone and everyone who has contributed or supported the magazine over the past two decades. We had two wild nights of openings and parties, and with the gracious support of the entire Jonathan LeVine Gallery staff, Converse, Liquitex, and all our friends, here is a look at the people who came out and celebrated.

During Art Basel one of the most talked about events and certainly one of our favorites was the Deluxx Fluxx arcade by Faile and Bast. For this special pop-up event, these three artists re-programmed vintage arcade games and pinball machines into sculptural works of art, as well as created an entire black light room with glowing posters and football tables to play. If you didn’t get a chance to see it in person, this video will give you some perspective on how the space was constructed and the ideas behind the installation.

We are especially excited about the following: video games + Faile + Bast + Miami = Deluxx Fluxx!There’s a lot going on every year at Art Basel (like our party!) and it difficult to prioritize, navigate, and attend a majority of shows and parties. We have already been building our list and this event is definitly a must.

A few weeks ago, Greek artists, Alexandros Vasmoulakis and b, invited an all-star cast of artists to participate in a group exhibition entitled “Intermission” held in an industrial building in Greece. In order to redefine the nature of events that have led this planet to it’s current condition, artists Paul Insect, Bast, Rostarr and Saber, literally took an “Intermission” from current sociopolitical issues to offer new perspectives for an optimistic future. The exhibition featured all new works from each of the artists, displaying a eclectic mix of distinct, refined aesthetics.
