Fútbol: The Beautiful Game @ LACMA, Los Angeles

Juxtapoz // Friday, February 07, 2014
A perfect lead up to the World Cup in Brazil this summer. The exhibition, Fútbol: The Beautiful Game, open at LACMA in Los Angeles, examines football—nicknamed "the beautiful game" by one sports commentator—and its significance in societies around the world. As a subject, football touches on issues of nationalism and identity, globalism and mass spectacle, as well as the common human experience shared by spectators from many cultures.

Kehinde Wiley, January 2010

Vault // Monday, September 09, 2013
Kehinde Wiley has always been one of our favorite painters, and in January 2010, we sent contributing editor Joey Garfield to the artist's NYC studio for a conversation about Wiley's ongoing and developing The World Stage series. At this point, Wiley was well on his way to becoming a world-famous painter, with major shows at museums and galleries, such as Roberts & Tilton and Deitch Projects, but we think we captured the artist at a perfect moment, ready for his World Stage...
