MICHAEL JOHANSSON "Shades and Variables" @ Galleri Andersson/Sandström, Stockholm

Juxtapoz // Friday, November 01, 2013
This exhibition came down this past month in Stockholm, but we still had some great shots from Henrik Haven that he took of Michael Johansson's "Shades and Variables" at Galleri Andersson/Sandstrom. As the gallery notes, Johansson is "an installation artist obsessed with the investigation of spatial possibilities. Everyday objects are dismantled, re-organized and perfectly arranged into color-coordinated puzzles, filling out select voids of any dimension."

3D Architectural Dioramas by Heather Kocsis

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 30, 2013
What at first appears to be a painting is actually constructed using various types of reclaimed wood. Canadian artist Heather Kocsis creates three dimensional assemblages depicting architectural elements. Make sure you take a look at some of the close-up shots after the jump to see the incredible detail!

Idiots

Juxtapoz // Monday, October 21, 2013
We don't think these Dutch artists are Idiots, this is actually their name. In fact, they are far from Idiots, as we are finding some of their works to be quite fantastic metaphors and interpretations of common knowledge. 

David Shrigley "Big Shoes" @ BQ, Berlin

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 10, 2013
We like to say old friend David Shrigley, because when he showed in our backyard of YBCA in SF last year, we did a fantastic interview with the British artist. Last month, Shrigley was in Berlin to open Big Shoes at BQ. The artist is well known to the wider public for his cartoons, books and films and recently has been nominated for this year’s Turner Prize. In his fifth exhibition at BQ, he mainly presents sculptural objects, next to a new series of works on paper.

Yayoi Kusama's "The Obliteration Room"

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 10, 2013
We have seen some fantastic exhibitions from Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama in the past. Last December's was no exception. As part of her "Look Now, See Forever" Yayoi built and painted a domestic environment white and invited children to cover the entire thing in colorful dot stickers. By the time two weeks had passed, there was very little white left!

The Work of Chitra Ganesh

Juxtapoz // Monday, October 07, 2013
A recipient of the 2012 John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship and a scholar of literature, art semiotics, painting, and sculpture, Brooklyn-based artist Chitra Ganesh is certainly no stranger to the art world and understandably so. Her incredible installations, drawings, digital and painting-based collages look to excavate and circulate buried narratives typically excluded from official canons of history, literature, and art.

Ai Weiwei's "Forever Bicycle" Installation @ Nuit Blanche, Toronto

Juxtapoz // Monday, October 07, 2013
For this year's Scotiabank Nuit Blanche in Toronto, Ai Weiwei debuted a new version of his Forever Bicycle installation. Consisting of 3,144 bicycles stacked 100 feet in length and 30 feet in height, the installation was lit with pink and blue lights and invited festival visitors to walk in between the thousands of bicycles. If you're lucky enough to be in the Toronto area, be sure to check it out if you didn't get a chance to Saturday night! It will be on display through the 27th of October.

Chris Burden "Extreme Measures" @ New Museum, NYC

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 02, 2013
The talk of the town in and on one of the most interesting buildings in town. Chris Burden's much-anticipated Extreme Measures just opened at the New Museum in NYC, and outside of the museum. "Spanning a forty-year career and moving across mediums, 'Extreme Measures' presents a selection of Burden’s work focused on weights and measures, boundaries and constraints, where physical and moral limits are called into question."

Installations Created From Beads by Liza Lou

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 02, 2013
Liza Lou's exhibition, Kitchen, at the New Museum of Contemporary Art consisted of 30 million beads and took five years to create. While her more recent work is more minimal, it is just as impressive, delicate, and beautiful.

Hyper-realistic Sculptural Installation by Sun Yuan and Peng Yu

Juxtapoz // Monday, September 30, 2013
Chinese artists Sun Yuan and Peng Yu's often controversial work examines on issues of 'perception, death and the human condition.' Previous installations have used human fat tissue and animals. Their most recent exhibition, If I Die, features giant gel and fiberglass manta rays carrying an old woman through the air followed by a swarm of colorful parrots!
