Jonathan LeVine Gallery is pleased to present Cruel Summer, a group exhibition curated by collector, graffiti historian, Juxtappoz contributor, and urban anthropologist Roger Gastman. "The summer of 1984 was awesome. The space shuttle Discovery took off on its maiden voyage, Apple released the Macintosh personal computer, the Olympics rallied the world together and Karate Kid was the hit film featuring the song Cruel Summer by Bananarama. The song and its video of three gorgeous young women roaming the streets of New York City inspired this show."

Launched on June 1, ColArt and Juxtapoz aim to seek out a new and emerging artist and provide him or her with a platform to create new work and excel their skill during a four-week residency in the center of London’s global contemporary art market. The winning artist will receive a prize package valued at more than $15,000, including flights, accommodations, a living stipend and access to necessary materials from the fine art brands, as well as a mentor that will oversee a number of tutorials with art professionals, visits to exhibitions, galleries and social events. At the end of the residency, the winning artist will show his or her work in an open studio exhibition in a section of ColArt’s Griffin Art Gallery.

It was very sad for us to see our 20th Anniversary show, "Art Truancy," come down from Jonathan LeVine Gallery a few weeks back. We had a blast! But good things come to an end, and in this case, another good thing is on the horizon at JLG. Famed and influential Bronx-graffiti staple CRASH is set to open "Broken English" at the gallery on June 26, 2014. In conjunction with the exhibition, CRASH has painted a mural with The L.I.S.A. Project NYC, located on Suffolk between Rivington and Stanton Streets, and will release a new screen print editio.

At the opening, Ron had his POPagandaTV crew with him, interviewing patrons and fans. Juxtapoz Editor-In-Chief, Evan Pricco, got caught behind the camera, and Ron and Evan talked health care and art.

And finally, the art. We are so proud of all the artwork that is on exhibit in "Art Truancy: Celebrating 20 Years of Juxtapoz Magazine," open at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in NYC through June 14, 2014. It blows our mind that we are now two decades old, but what is even more amazing are all the artists that have been in our pages over those years. Their works tell the story, create the chance to document alternative art narratives, bring out the fans, bring out the collectors, and keep the creative energy of Juxtapoz alive. Here, then, is all the art in "Art Truancy."
