Film of 2010, Part 3—JR's Women Are Heroes

Street Art // Friday, December 31, 2010
Showing your film at Cannes and then winning the TED Award, coinciding with new exhibitions and projects is good for a lifetime, but JR nailed down these achievements in one calendar year that was 2010. We haven't seen the full film (yet), but any piece of work that helps you win an award that Bill Clinton and Bono have always received is a big deal. The film gets an official release on January 12, 2011, but 2010 was the year that JR became a superstar. Trailer after the jump . . .

Film of 2010, Part 2—Jean-Michel Basquiat: The Radiant Child

Juxtapoz // Friday, December 31, 2010
Tamara Davis' Jean-Michel Basquiat: The Radiant Child, with great interviews with Fab 5 Freddy, Julian Schnabel, and other pivotal art figures of NYC in the 1980s, is being hailed as the definitive Basquiat documentary, and to us was our favorite art film of 2010. It presented Basquiat as a larger than life artist, but also as just a man inside the legend. More after the jump . . .

Film of 2010, Part 1—Exit Through the Gift Shop

Juxtapoz // Friday, December 31, 2010
Perhaps the film that everyone wanted to pre-judge and dismiss as part of the perceived "over-hype" of Banksy turned out to be the biggest surprise of 2010. Not only was the film entertaining, funny, and controversial, but was actually a well-made, great bit of filmmaking. It transcended typical street art and art circles and became a film that masses could enjoy. Most people we spoke to, some of the early critics, even admired Banksy's 2010 project to reimagine the art world. More after the jump . . .

The Animators Behind of Fat Albert

Juxtapoz // Friday, December 31, 2010
We think many people forget "Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids" was produced, created, and hosted by Bill Cosby. We might have even forgot about that except in our research about the cartoon show last night. The show also premiered in 1972 and lasted until 1985, which seems like a really long run. There is a long legacy of contributors to the series, some being veteran Disney people that Cosby hired for the character creation. More information after the jump . . .

Pixar Characters to Become Stamps in 2011

Juxtapoz // Thursday, December 30, 2010
Remember stamp collections? That was a big deal in the 1980s and '90s, if we remember correctly, the Elvis stamp in particular. Maybe having a stamp collection is still a big deal, and collectors will have a new stamp to seek out in 2011 with Pixar characters the newest and next icons to grace the USA's mail delivery procedure.

From the Vaults—Herbert Baglione Video in London for Lazarides Solo Show

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, December 29, 2010
There was some Super8 footage found recently of Herbert Baglione (Juxtapoz July 2009 cover) painting all night in the basement of Lazarides Gallery in London the night before his solo show opened in November of 2008. That was a big show for Herbert, as he introduced some fully-developed color pieces that added to his already signature black and white characters. Watch the video after the jump . . .

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, December 29, 2010
We previewed Creative Lives Season 2 and contest yesterday on the site, and because it is the last week of 2010, we are looking through some of our favorite moments. We always liked the Super8 footage that was shot by Creative Lives while McGee was setting up the centerpiece installation of the SFMoMA's 75th Anniversary Show. Watch after the jump . . .

Le Petit Gondry Preps His Lego Video of the White Stripes

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, December 28, 2010
Like we mentioned yesterday, it is a rare to look into the creative process of one of the leading and experimental mainstream filmmakers like Michel Gondry. In this case, we weren't able to get behind the scenes with Gondry as he was on the press tour for The Green Hornet, so we art-directed our own behind the scenes Gondry world with Le Petit Gondry, the lookalike. See what Le Petit Gondry is doing with Legos after the jump . . .

When In Seoul—Video

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, December 28, 2010
Our resident blogger, Alice Han, just posted this interesting video called "When In Seoul." We like this new trend of people creating really beautiful, serene videos where the music is minimal and the city is the main actor. Director Dan Pak has done a great job here. Watch the video after the jump . . .
