Juxtapoz Art & Culture Magazine has enjoyed the entirety of 2014 celebrating our 20th anniversary as a print publication. From a massive group show at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in NYC in the Spring, to a surfboard charity auction in San Diego, to publishing two new book titles, Psychedelic and Hyperreal, as well as countless special features in the magazine, we are proud to have paid homage to our past, present and future. Now, in partnership with our friends at SCOPE Miami Beach 2014, we present a series of galleries that epitomize the most dynamic and cutting-edge contemporary art in the world today. It is safe to say we are gratified to close out this 20th year with one of our most ambitious projects to date. Our installation dates will run the entirety of Scope Miami Beach 2014, December 2—7, 2014.

Benny Gold, contributor and friend of Juxtapoz, featured in our March issue, has become a San Francisco staple for his artfully designed clothing. He is now trying his hand as a curator. Gold sent blank airplanes made of balsa wood to artists all over the world. Each artist painted, carved, burned, and otherwise made each airplane into singular works of art.

As a DJ in Switzerland during the early 90s, Kimou Meyer aka GROTESK caught Wu Tang’s “Can It All Be So Simple” video on a Music Television network that still lived up to its name. MC Raekwon sported a windbreaker decorated only with the words ‘SNOW BEACH’ across the chest—a fascinating and entirely confusing statement for the Swiss artist, whose theories about the jacket’s meaning drifted far and wide in the pre-Google darkness....

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."
