Beginning on August 20, 2012, visitors to the Smithsonian's Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, DC can experience the transformative installation by influential and renowned artist (and November 2010 cover artist) Barbara Kruger. “Belief+Doubt” covers the lower-level lobby entry to the museum bookstore, about 6,700 square feet of surface—including walls, floor and escalator sides—covered in text-printed vinyl, surrounding viewers with lettering up to 12 feet high in a high-contrast color scheme that has become Kruger's custom of red, white and black.

Juxtapoz // Monday, August 06, 2012
It could be center to some, centre to others. Either way, if you are going to host the Olympics, you better have some LEGO models ready for us all to see as well. In this case, a model of the 2012 Olympics Aquatic Center was built for the LUG Showcase in the Stratford LEGO store, next to the London 2012 Olympics park.

Wood Sculptures by Lee Stoetzel

Juxtapoz // Saturday, August 04, 2012
Lee Stoetzel creates these fantastic near life-sized wooden sculptures of everyday objects, such as Jeep Wranglers, old Mac computers, fast food meals, and VW buses. Okay, a VW bus is not an everyday object, and we haven't eaten fast food in months if not years, but you get what we are saying. The works are made of cypress wood and various bits of hardware to attach everything together.

Sundead by Luciano Podcaminsky

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 02, 2012
This is pretty cool. Argentina-based artist, Luciano Podcaminsky, has created the conceptual piece, Sundead, a coffin re-imagined as a tanning bed, or vice-versa. Not only are tanning beds the most bizarre creations by humans, it happens to be even weirder that people in places like Florida and California, places that get sun, go to tanning salons. Are we wrong?

In celebration of Brazilian twins, Os Gemeos, and their museum exhibition at the Boston ICA opening today and carrying through to November 25, 2012, we look back at one of two cover stories we have run with the two artists.
