Tom Sachs "SPACE PROGRAM: MARS" @ Park Avenue Armory, NYC

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 15, 2012
Tom Sachs' newest exhibition at first glance might seem like a glorified space camp that someone is trying to call art, but understanding Sachs' style and mentality we realized that this is in an incredible exhibition not to be missed. Sachs' will be occupying the 55,000 square foot Wade Thompson Drill Hall creating an immersive installation that is reminiscent of the Apollo Program but will be focused around Mars.

How to Sweep By Tom Sachs (plus Tom Sachs x Nike Craft "Mars Yard Shoe")

Juxtapoz // Monday, May 14, 2012
Leading contemporary artist Tom Sachs has always had a fascination with space and space travel. We just didn't know he was going to create, with Nike, a Mars Yard Shoe, or an entire line of Nike gear to be worn when you are planning a trip to Mars. Just planning, not going. As Sachs notes on his site, "These shoes are built to support the bodies of the strongest minds in the aerospace industry." While they plan things.

One of our favorite NYC-based artists, Wes Lang, is set to open a new solo show, Here Comes Sunshine, at the Lower East Side's Half Gallery this May 17, 2012. We follow Lang's blog closely, and he is good about updating it with oldies and newbies, and we recommend spending some time looking at his Americana meets tattoo meets stream of consciousness.
