Juxtapoz For Outside Lands Music and Art Festival 2012

Juxtapoz // Monday, July 30, 2012
With the same anticipation as last year when Juxtapoz curated the art for the annual Outside Lands Music and Art Festival in San Francisco, we are looking forward to the pack of kids who drive up from Arizona to see Metallica headline, wondering why it’s 49 degrees and foggy in August in California. For the 5th annual festival Juxtapoz is back at art curation duties, braving the schizophrenic weather with a wide assortment of live painting, murals, installations, and interactive art from some of our favorite international artists.

The Ring by Arnaud Lapierre

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 27, 2012
Versailles has their Hall of Mirrors, and Arnaud Lapierre and the Place Vendôme in Paris, France has their Ring of Mirrors. The various reflections, the viewers placement with in the sculpture, and the construction of The Ring make for a breathtaking experience. This dynamic installation changes the relationships between individuals and the space they are going through.

Umbrella Installation in Águeda, Portugal

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 27, 2012
Perhaps the filter on these photos by Patrícia Almeida make these even more eye-catching, but we are showing you this because we think its a great idea for a public art project. In the town of Águeda, Portugal, colorful umbrellas are hung over promenades, giving your walk an interesting hue and something quite lovely to gaze up at.

Olafur Eliasson "Little Sun" @ Tate Modern, London

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 25, 2012
Whether creating waterfalls along the East River in NYC, a rainbow panorama viewing room at the Aros Museum in Aarthus, Denmark, or a beautiful one-way color tunnel like the one we saw at SFMoMA, Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson is one of the most heralded contemporary artists working today. In short, he is like a scientist who happens to make incredibe, immersive, experience-based art. Just in time for the Olympics, Eliasson will open Little Sun at the Tate Modern.

Gregor Gaida's Aluminum "Attaboys"

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 24, 2012
Bremen, Germany based artist, Gregor Gaida, has often made sculpture work based around the aggressive or emotional acts of mankind, and his series, Attaboys is no exception. The aluminum sculptures appear to be destroying a gallery floor, a change from a similar body of work in 2008 where Gaida's boy sculptures were drawing with chalk. 

Optical Illusions in Installations by Regina Silveira

Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 19, 2012
Have you ever wanted to feeling of figuratively falling into an installation? The optical illusions that Brazil-born Regina Silveira creates are quite astounding, making the viewer and gallery visitor become an active participant in the installation. The designs are simple, but the impact is stunning.

Evol in Warsaw, Poland

Street Art // Tuesday, July 17, 2012
Evol was recently in Warsaw, Poland transforming everyday urban objects into miniature city landscapes. This newest piece is an apartment building with a flock of butterflies swarming it, incorporating old tags that previously existed on the small space. Plenty of detail in this piece including the window blinds and satellite dishes.

Pac Man Light Installation by Benedetto Bufalino and Benoit Deseille

Juxtapoz // Monday, July 16, 2012
A great idea from Benedetto Bufalino and Benoit Deseille. In conjunction with the Festival of Trees and Lights in Geneva, Switzerland, the artists collaborated on a string light installation using Pac Man characters. The light effect recreated the chase of the ghosts and the infamous arcade character, Pac Man.

A six-seat airplane will continue to roll in a circular motion 24 hours a day until August 26th, 2012 in Central Park. Alaskan-based artist, Paola Pivi, created this site-specific installation with the help of New York’s public art fund.
