Conor Harrington "A Whole lot of Trouble for a Little bit of Win" Video

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 17, 2012
We just got back from London where we had a little discussion with Conor Harrington of which you can see in the December 2012 issue of the magazine. While there, we saw Harrington's two new pieces, now on display at Lazarides' Bedlam show. Just as he prepared his Dead Meat work, there was a photoshoot with models for the new pieces, and Harrington just released a new video of the behind-the-scenes footage of the shoot. Go watch...

Opening: Lazarides Gallery's "Bedlam" in London

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 10, 2012
For the past 3 years, as the art world has descended upon London for the Frieze Art Fair, Lazarides Gallery has descended below the city streets to put on Bedlam, in our opinion one of the best exhibitions a non-fair can offer in a during a heavily Art Fair environment. For the third and final year, Bedlam is being held in the Old Vic Tunnels, and we went to investigate.

Bedlam in Old Vic Tunnels, London

Juxtapoz // Monday, October 08, 2012
For the thrid and final year, Lazarides Gallery in London is set to take over the Old Vic Tunnels underneath Waterloo Station with the exhibition, Bedlam. The interactive, site-specific installation coincides with the Frieze Art Fair, for what we like to call a significant, if not alternative way to see art as opposed to a big hall with booths. This you may see a rat... the show opens October 9.

Paintings by Simon Birch

Juxtapoz // Sunday, October 07, 2012
After a long talk with Conor Harrington recently, we have become very fascinated with the idea of motion in paintings. When we came across the work of Hong Kong-based Simon Birch recently, we loved the way the artist depicted motion, both in his subjects and also with the surreal elements to his paintings.
