Doug Aitken's "Station to Station": From the Atlantic to the Pacific

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 27, 2013
The mantra for multi-media artist Doug Aitken's Station to Station project is simple: "In September 2013, a train will travel from the Atlantic to the Pacific. Activating the cultural landscape, Station to Station will connect artists, musicians and creative pioneers...". A moving public art, installation, gallery, and sculpture moving across the US, in other words. Okay, maybe this isn't so simple.

David Mach's Coat Hanger Sculptures

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 16, 2013
We've posted the work of Scottish-based artist David Mach before. His magazine installations and sculptures are pretty incredible, appearing in waves and carrying everyday objects through the gallery with him. This morning we are admiring his coat hanger sculptures, which are quite impressive.

Werner Herzog "Hearsay of the Soul" @ The Getty Center, Los Angeles

Juxtapoz // Monday, August 12, 2013
Hearsay of the Soul is film director Werner Herzog's first video art installation. Projected on three adjacent walls and eighteen minutes in length, the five-channel video combines selected landscape etchings by Hercules Segers (Dutch, about 1589–about 1638) with the contemporary avant-garde music of composer/cellist Ernst Reijseger (Dutch, born 1954). The juxtaposition of Segers's lush prints of enigmatic vistas with Reijseger's expressive and experimental music results in a richly layered work that is both intimate and epic.

Floor Installations by Suzan Drumming

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 09, 2013
Amsterdam-based artist Suzan Drumming makes paintings, photographs, films, installations, and other works in public spaces. Like much of her work, these particular floor installations originated from her fascination for watching and playing with space, illusion and optical effects. Composed of crystal, chromed metal, precious stones, mirrors and optical glass, Drumming's installations can look clean and uncluttered from afar and detailed and disorienting up close.

Installations by Chiharu Shiota

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 06, 2013
Japanese born Chiharu Shiota is an installation artist currently living and working in Berlin. She uses various everyday objects such as beds, windows, dresses, shoes and suitcases. She explores the relationships between past and present, living and dying, and memories of people implanted into objects. To these she adds intricate, web-like threads of black and red.

Perceptual Installations by Damien Gilley

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 30, 2013
We would love to see Portland-based artist Damien Gilley's perceptual installations in person. Combining drawing and sculpture, Gilley references science fiction, non-Euclidiean geometry, and vintage computer graphics in his illusions and wall drawings.

Ian Strange's "Suburban" Intervention

Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 18, 2013
Australian artist Ian Strange (aka Kid Zoom), is presenting a unique combination of installation art and film and photography at the National Gallery of Victoria on July 26th, 2013. Exploring the identity of the American home as a cultural icon, Strange spent two years with a film crew and volunteers travelling the east coast documenting sit-specific installations. Watch a video after the jump!

12,000 Toy Soldier Peace Sign by Ole Ukena

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 17, 2013
German conceptual artist Ole Ukena creates humorous and intriguing works of art, interweaving a variety of media including text, video, photography, drawing and sculpture. They could be described as bound by a common thread of complex simplicity. From his peace sign constructed of 12,000 toy soldiers to his bench made of nails and reading "trust," Ole's work frequently uses language, whether it be symbols or actual text, to build riddles 'that await completion in the viewer's mind.'

Interactive Installations by Ernesto Neto

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 17, 2013
We are all about interactive art. We also have very fond memories of diving into a giant pool of plastic balls at the McDonalds Playpen as a kid and these installations by Brazilian artist Ernesto Neto remind us of being a child again. The plastic balls in this case are suspended by the thousands from colorful netting allowing exhibition visitors to climb and walk along the structure. He has also created some wonderfully comfortable looking hammocks... 

Update: Decaying Fine Art by Valerie Hegarty

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 16, 2013
We say decaying fine art, but the work of Valerie Hegarty is just so much more. Ravaged paitings, melting canvas, cracked walls, weathered works are all the characteristics of Hegarty's work. Valerie showed at The Queen's Nails in San Francisco earlier this year and is currently in an exhibit at The Brooklyn Museum through December 1st, 2013. The New Yorker called her work a look into "waning powers of a nation and fractured affairs of state." Perhaps of all culture in general?
