Marianne Boesky Gallery is pleased to present Beverly Hills John, an exhibition of new work by John Waters. This is the artist’s third solo show at the gallery, and will be on view from January 9 to February 14, 2015, at 509 W. 24th Street, New York. For 50 years, John Waters has provoked the idiosyncrasies and hilarities of the movie business – the childhood stars, the trade lingo, and the false depiction of the ugly and the heroic. His photographic work (since 1995) has taken on politically charged topics of “cinematic correctness,” religious lunacy, and media manipulation.

I love October. Not only is it the month of Halloween (my favorite religious holiday), but it is also the month of Divine’s birth (Oct. 19th is the special day, Happy Belated, Beautiful!). John Waters’s muse. David Hockney painted him, Anthony Friedkin photographed him, Andy Warhol interviewed him. Enjoy!

One of the most celebrated directors in American independent cinema, John Waters (featured in our August 2010 issue) is at his vibrant best when flaunting Hollywood’s rules or reveling in bad taste. The director of Pink Flamingos (1972) and Pecker (1998) brings the same wit and audacity to the art gallery.

John Waters is a little bit of everything in the creative world; filmmaker, writer, actor, visual artist, and even has a robust art collection. Based in San Francisco, Baltimore, and NYC, we sat down with Waters in the summer of 2010, just when his book Role Models was being released, and his last show at Rena Bransten Gallery in SF was opened.

As we prepare to release our Juxtapoz Presents video profile on Sam Bassett, we look back at some of the great Juxtapoz portraits shot by the photographer. Mr. Bassett has been our contributing photo editor and integral part of our visual appearance for over 3 years, and seeing his a body of work in near full shows his common threads and experimental nature.

Tracey Snelling at Rena Bransten and Chris Johanson at Altman Siegel Gallery—UPDATED with VIDEO CLIPJuxtapoz // Monday, January 17, 2011
Occasionally, it is nice to get wowed by a fun, involved exhibition. That was what we felt at Ten Years, Tracey Snelling's new exhibition of "two dimensional photographs to multi-media installations incorporating photographs, miniature constructions of buildings or towns and video screens and projections" one of the more interestng exhibits we have been to in the past few years. More after the jump . . .

John Waters (Juxtapoz #115) made his name with a series of spectacular (-ly gross, at times) films, including the cult classics Hairspray, Cry Baby, Pink Flamingos, and Cecil B. Demented. In Role Models, Waters reflects on those who have inspired him, so don’t miss this opportunity to meet the legend and have your copy signed.

It would be an understatement to call John Waters a 'wonderful storied filmmaker, visual artist, and writer.' In this month’s August 2010 feature interview with John Waters by longtime family friend Noel Nocciolo, Waters discusses Role Models, his revealing, funny, and poignant new book, and dives into the usual smattering of art, porn, and drugs. Take a look at some stand-out quotes from the interview.

From the very first issue of Juxtapoz to now the latest edition, Dr Lakra has spent the meantime becoming an international tattoo and fine art superstar, and museum regular. That’s why we chose him to grace the cover of our August issue.

We are very excited to present an early look at our forthcoming August issue, whose cover features Mexican illustrator and tattoo artist Dr Lakra. Dr Lakra melds the past with the present to expand boundaries of fine art into new and exciting directions.
