Camille Rose Garcia opens a new solo exhibition, "Snow White and the Black Lagoon" in Los Angeles, California at the Michael Kohn Gallery ths Saturday (March 12), and she sent us a video of her painting for the new show. As we wrote earlier, the "show plays off of the classic Grimm Brothers’ story, “Snow White and the Seven Dwarves”, with this series of paintings and drawings creating a modern day allegory for our delusional relationship with nature."

As our April 2011 Art In the Streets issue is getting ready to hit newsstands, we look back at one of the great convergences of scenes when hip-hop, punk, and graffiti fused into this music video. Here you have The Clash, Fab 5 Freddy, and Futura 2000 all together on one track, with graffiti images being flashed and artists being name-dropped by both Fred and Futura. Video after the jump . .

We haven't spoke about Michel Gondry since our feature with the "The Green Hornet" director in our January 2011 issue, but we just saw that he directed a music video for Los Angeles-based trio, The Living Sisters. The video for "How Are You Doing?" features some trademark Gondry dreamlike sequences, including some airplance turbulence, laughter, and a house burning down. Watch after the jump . . .

One of the undeniable legends of poster design and cinema, Saul Bass, has a retrospective exhibition, Bass Notes: The Film Posters of Saul Bass, up at Kemistry Gallery in London through March, 17. Having basically created the template to a modern movie poster, Bass' canon is so iconic that your favorite classic movie poster was probably designed by Bass, or someone borrowing his style. Images and information after the jump . . .

A little birdie in the Juxtapoz community got creative with "Banksy" today and was able to "interview" the elusive artist about his Academy Award snub at the hands of "Inside Job." Yeah, let's keep it at that. Charlie Sheen has nothing on this. Exclusive video after the jump . . .

We were quite honored to have Gus Van Sant featured in our March 2011 issue of the magazine, and it is good timing that he has a collaborative show with Academy Award co-host and actor/writer/artist, James Franco. The exhibition, Unfinished, stems from Van Sant and Franco's time spent on the set of Milk and Van Sant opening the vaults to his My Own Private Idaho dailies to Franco. More after the jujmp . . .
