George Condo's "Mental States" opens at New Musuem next Wednesday

Juxtapoz // Friday, January 21, 2011
The year 2010 was generous, at least commercially, for George Condo. The 5 album covers he created for Mr. Kanye West were extraordinary both in content and controversy, and after eyeing Condo's work for quite some time, we were thrilled to hear about his "Mental States" retrospective on display at New Museum in Manhattan starting next Wednesday, January 26.

New York Rock and Roll Circus

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, January 18, 2011
On January 3rd and 4th of this year, the New York Rock and Roll Circus was held under a giant circus tent at Lincoln Center. With drag queens, contortionists, ponies, face painting, tattoos, and a full line up of bands both nights it was quite the event. If you missed the great line-up of bands, Acid Betty as the ringmaster, or the "riot," here are a few photos from the event to catch you up...

Olek and the Bull on Wall Street—Video

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, January 04, 2011
The Wall Street bull got a bit covered by NYC artist Olek, who is a crochet titan. She could crochet your house if she wanted to. Her newest crochet victim or lucky guest also had some video shot with it, because we think most of you would like to see how one crochets on Wall Street. Has to be a first, a least since the days of Washington. Video after the jump . . .

Kenji Nakayama for Woodward Gallery Project Space

Juxtapoz // Monday, January 03, 2011
Kenji Nakayama is profiled in our January 2011 issue, and the piece we featured in the magazine sits outside the Woodward Gallery Project Space in NYC. The piece was up from October through December, but our guess is that you may still be able to see across from Woodward Gallery right now. See what our contributing editor, Caleb Neelon, had to say about Kenji after the jump . . .

Juxtapoz // Sunday, January 02, 2011
New York City-based photographer iO Tillett Wright posted her 90 Photos of 2010 as the year ended, and because we have always loved her black and white shots at night, we found some of our favorites to post her. Of course, iO posted them "In actual chronological order I give you, my 2010 in photographs," and we just posted them in a random order, because we are random. Photos after the jump . . .
