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.

New York-based German artist Markus Linnenbrink’s work is the kind that one walks into and becomes a part of. Line, color and playful boundaries have become his signature. Linnenbrink has featured conventional paint on canvas work but no matter what, he utilizes the space to full effect.
