Even though this exhibition/installation came down last month, the pictures still make this a worthy bit of news.

28,000 Flowers @ Massachusetts Mental Health Center by Anna Schuleit, circa 2003

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, March 14, 2012
We just read a wonderful interview with Anna Schuleit, who in 2003 created Bloom, an installation in the Massachusetts Mental Health Center that involved 28,000 flowers. Schuleit, when commissioned to work within a mental health center nearly 100 years old and slated for demolition, notes "I was hoping to create a work that would bring aspects of play into the seriousness of the institution, an element of the absurd."

The Armory Show: Recap Walkthrough

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, March 13, 2012
As we like to treat most major art fairs, we love just taking a quiet walkthrough all the different booths, halls, and exhibition spaces and just soak it all in.

A Tank of Thread by Jannick Deslauriers

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, February 28, 2012
We thought that we had posted the work of Montreal's Jannick Deslauriers on the site from this past Fall, where the artist create the fragile, large-format tank installation that was constructed and held together by black thread. We love how the artist takes a seemingly ruthless, powerful weapon of war and recreates with the most delicate of materials.

An Interview with Ela Boyd

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, February 15, 2012
Ela Boyd creates immersive installations that fragment and decentralize our understanding of space, time, and the self in reference to the subjective qualities of perception. Her installations have been on view at various spaces including the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego alongside the Pacific Standard Time exhibition Phenomenal. By choreographing the viewer’s experience, the installations involve the viewer in the space, reordering their understanding of common phenomena that are easily overlooked.
