Curated by Peter Galassi, former Chief Curator of Photography at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, “In the Studio: Photographs,” includes over 150 photographs by 40 artists—spanning from the origin of the medium to the late twentieth century—and is divided into three particularly rich themes within the broader subject of images of the artist's studio.

We are big Jonas Wood fans. Huge. His last show at David Kordansky in LA was probably our favorite of 2014. Now, he just opened a show with his uber-talented wife and ceramic artist, Shio Kusaka, at Gagosian Gallery in Hong Kong. So now we are huge Shio fans, too.
TAKASHI MURAKAMI "IN THE LAND OF THE DEAD, STEPPING ON THE TAIL OF A RAINBOW" @ Gagosian Gallery, West 24th StreetJuxtapoz // Wednesday, November 12, 2014
From the sounds of it, the new Murakami show is quite personal and a deep meditation on life and mortality in the face of the great earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan in 2011. He recently told the NY Times, “I used to think of religion as something kind of false and hypocritical, but after the earthquake disaster, I realized in a time like that, religion and fairy tales and things like that are actually a necessity." His newest solo show, "In the Land of the Dead, Stepping on the Tail of a Rainbow," opened at Gagosian in NYC on November 10, and will be seen through January 17, 2015.

One of the best pure drawers we can think of is Britain's Paul Noble, an award-winning artist with works in the collections of MoMA and the Tate. Noble was one of five founding members of City Racing, an influential artists' space in London during the late 1980s, and was nominated for the Turner Prize in 2012.

Opening on February 7th will be a collection of works by the late and great Jean-Michel Basquiat on view at Gagosian's 555 West 24th Street location in New York. In case you wanted to purchase a mass produced reproduction of one his works and stare down at it while you eat day in and day out in anticipation for the show, Gagosian has you covered with this Basquiat plate.

If you happen to be in New York this week, and you happen to love Ed Ruscha (as we do here at Juxtapoz), then you are in luck. Assuming you may not have already seen this lovely solo-show by the California-based artist, the exhibition provides a breadth of new and older work from Ruscha, some adhering to his well known use of text and others venturing into more heavily visual works like the acrylic canvas painting Gilded, Marbled, and Foibled.

This is one we wish we could head to Hong Kong for, Takashi Murakami's first show in Hong Kong at Gagosian Gallery. This exhibition explores one of the central dichotomies of his art—between joy and terror, his optimistic magnanimity as an artist and his pessimistic perspective on postwar Japan. It opens/opened tonight, November 29, in Hong Kong.

Tonight, November 3, we suggest heading over to Gagosian Gallery in Los Angeles for the book release party for a fantastic new title, Milk & Honey: Contemporary Art in California. Not only do you get to see the bathrooms painted by our friend Sage Vaughn, there is a limited edition Milk and Honey shirt with Joey Gallagher and RVCA, and limited edition Milk and Honey tote bags with Cleon Peterson and INCASE.

William Eggleston is a photographer that triumphs capturing the everyday (influenced by the greats that shortly preceded him like Henry Cartier-Bresson who coined the term the decisive moment). In this exhibition of photographs from the Los Alamos series, Eggleston captured his immediate surroundings while driving across the United States between 1966 and 1974.
