Alex Prager "Compulsion" in Los Angeles, NYC, and London

Juxtapoz // Friday, April 20, 2012
Few photographers create the cinematic scenery that Alex Prager depicts in her work. Part film noir, part Wizard of Oz circa 2025, Prager has taken an aesthetic and made it one of the most recognizable in the world of contemporary photography. That is hard to do in this day and age. Right now, her Compulsion series is on simultaneous display at three galleries: Michael Hoppen Gallery, London until May 26, at New York’s Yancey Richardson Gallery until May 19, and M+B Gallery, LA until May 12.

Opening: ROA "Hypnagogia" @ Stolenspace, London

Juxtapoz // Friday, April 20, 2012
They definitely should create an iPhone app that is called 'Where in the World is Roa?" It seems like the man darts the world and leaves evidence of his black and white animals for the world to enjoy. The Belgian street, public, fine, and installation artist just opened a new solo show at Stolenspace in London, and we went to go check it out last night. Photos after the jump . . .

Yayoi Kusama @ Tate Modern, London

Juxtapoz // Monday, April 16, 2012
This past week in London, the Tate Modern presented two juxtapozing exhibitions of major interest to us and obviously most people interested in contemporary art: Damien Hirst may be getting most headlines as of now, but the exhibition covering nine decades of work from Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama was one of the best exhibitions we have seen over the past few years.

Lucian Freud "Portraits" @ National Portrait Gallery, London

Juxtapoz // Friday, April 13, 2012
One of the best exhibitions we have seen in quite some time is the Lucian Freud Portraits exhibition being held at the National Portrait Gallery in London. Freud was one of the most famed and talented painters of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. His portraiture is unprecedented in its intensely psychological attention to detail.

London correspondent Butterfly made it out to the highly-anticipated (and we got excited right after our studio visit with Mr. Harrington last month) solo exhibition of Conor Harrington, Dead Meat, that opened at Lazarides Gallery last night. The Irish-born, London-based artist presented 8 large-scale canvases and 24 small studies that reference a "18th-century dinner party, the height of Europe's power and draws comparisons with Contemporary society."
