Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 01, 2012
A busy summer it has been all around in the art world, but in our home base of the San Francisco Bay Area, we have had two significant museum retrospectives that have made their way into the September 2012 issue of Juxtapoz. First off, we celebrate our cover story, Daniel Clowes, and his fantastic exhibition at the Oakland Museum of California, Modern Cartoonist: The Art of Daniel Clowes. Over the years, the iconic comic book artist has given us cult-followed works such as Ghost World, Eightball, Wilson, and numerous covers for The New Yorker.

Former Juxtapoz cover artist, and continually one of our favorite fine artists working today, French-born, Barcelona-based artist Miss Van is set to open a new exhibition, Wild at Heart, at Copro Gallery in Santa Monica on Saturday, August 11, 2012. Internationally known for her poupées, the French word for dolls, Miss Van’s dreamlike narratives are filled with spontaneity and lightness. Yet they also reveal a darker side that has evolved from her experience as an acclaimed graffiti artist.
