In L.A.: Takashi Murakami @ Blum & Poe

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, April 16, 2013
This past weekend we stopped by Blum & Poe for the opening of Takashi Murakami’s latest solo exhibition “Arhat.” This is the first time Mr Murakami has shown in the United States since his travelling survey from 2007-09,  and what we saw was a fantastic series of new paintings and sculptures that remind us of the playful nature of the Japanese artist's work. Definitely a must see if you are in the Los Angeles area. Photos and more after the jump…

Juxtapoz // Monday, April 08, 2013
Last Thursday Patrick O’Dell’s photo exhibit “Skateboard High School” opened at Known Gallery in Los Angeles. On hand to check out the show were skateboarders, actors, models and scenesters. People were playing it cool, until they heard that every print, framed or unframed, was available to purchase for only fifty bucks, at which point the cool became crazed.

Preview: Greg "Craola" Simkins "Stop Haunting Me" @ Merry Karnowsky, LA

Juxtapoz // Monday, April 01, 2013
We just got a message from our good friend, and former cover artist, Greg "Craola" Simkins about his new show, Stop Haunting Me, that opens this Saturday, April 6 at Merry Karnowsky in LA. The show will feature a series of new paintings and never-before-seen prints. As Craola told us, " As I painted my pieces for this exhibit, two themes kept reoccurring to me. My twentieth year anniversary of writing graffiti under the name 'Craola"', which I began in 1993, was approaching. It is unbelievable that it is 2013 already. I blinked and 20 years flew by."

Fritz Haeg's Sundown Schoolhouse @ Human Resources, LA

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, March 26, 2013
Over the weekend, Fritz Haeg was in the foyer at the Hammer in Los Angeles providing an experience that is best enacted rather than explained. Traveling from MoMA in New York and just finishing its stay at the Hammer, Sundown Schoolhouse will now arrive at Human Resources (starting today March 26th through April 4th). If you are in LA tonight, we highly recommend you catch Lucky Dragons and UFO 2012 between 6 and 8 PM.

Catherine Opie @ Regen Projects, LA

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, March 26, 2013
  If you haven't stopped by Regen Projects in LA to see their most recent solo show of Catherine Opie's photographs, you have until March 29th to do so. Fans and newcomers alike are recommended to make a visit in the coming week. From the press: Regen Projects is pleased to announce an exhibition of new portraits and landscapes by Catherine Opie. These photographs mark both a progression and a departure for the artist. Opie's work has always investigated the figure in relation to the landscape, disregarding the polarities typically found within these approaches.
