Each of the five parts consisted of it’s own feature film as well as an installation consisting of the sculptures used in each film and photographs reflecting elements from each film.

To celebrate Juxtapoz' special project in Detroit with Matthew Barney, Lance Mountain, Power House, and the Ride It Sculpture Park, Juxtapoz is excited to announce a limited edition Barney x Mountain (shot by our wonderful photographer, Joe Brook) cover circulating on newsstands across the world. There are only 1,000, so good luck on the search. We also invited filmmakers Eric Carlsen and Chris Rosik to shoot a documentary on Mountain's time in Detroit, which is what you get to see here, today.

Today, we announce our February 2013 issue, featuring our old friend James Jean, who is set to open a new body of work at Jack Tilton Gallery in NYC on January 9, 2013.

We document Mountain's ride on a Barney-designed skate deck (part of the Drawing Restraint 19 series), at the Ride It Sculpture Park in Detroit as part of Juxtapoz ongoing collaboration with Power House Productions.

A few years ago, as we working to complete our 15th Anniversary show and benefit with Detroit in mind, we got word that Matthew Barney was working in Detroit on a special project.
