KAWS @ Mary Boone + Galerie Perrotin, NYC

Juxtapoz // Friday, November 01, 2013
If the year of KAWS hasn't gone well already for the Brooklyn-based artist, he will be opening concurrent exhibitions at Mary Boone Gallery and Galerie Perrotin's new NYC space this weekend, November 2, 2013. Some people would like to have one show. Some people think two would be nice. Some would like just one show in NYC. One in Chelsea? Even better? How about two shows at Mary Boone and Galerie Perrotin, at the same time? On the same day? That is a lot of champagne.  Oh, and he has a museum show in Philly right now. There's that trifecta we were looking for!

Wes Lang "Blessings" @ HALF Gallery, NYC

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 31, 2013
Wes Lang is always putting together some bodies of work, the type of paintings that the bad biker guys in Pee Wee Herman's Big Adventure would love. This Fall, Lang will return to HALF Gallery with Blessings, a new body of work that will again look at the history of tattoo flash, imagery from the Old West, and even a little old school pornography. For the kids. We gathered a collection of Lang's work from the past year for you to check out... but go see it in person after November 7th.

Banksy "Better Out Than In" Day 12—21 Recap

Juxtapoz // Monday, October 21, 2013
Since the last time we posted about Banksy's month long street residency in NYC, Better Out Than In, we have witnessed a few pieces going up in NYC (or at least part of the masses going to see the pieces) and see the backlash of a certain Mayor Bloomberg making his comments about "urban decay." Banksy has given us a confessional, Ronald McDonald's wage reenactment, a Central Park painting sale, a pop-up outdoor show with Os Gemeos under the High Line, and of course, trying to staying Ghetto 4 Life.

Portraits Made From Food, Plants and other Organics by Klaus Enrique

Juxtapoz // Friday, October 18, 2013
Based on Giuseppe Arcimboldo's 400-year-old paintings, New York-based artist Klaus Enrique constructs figures out of plants and food. "Although most reconginze the images immediately as portraits, there are many people who do not. At first they only see the individual parts of the image: the fruits, flowers, and vegetables...simple organic objects come together to create something more meaningful than the sum of its parts."

Jenny Morgan "How To Find A Ghost" @ Driscoll Babcock, NYC

Juxtapoz // Monday, October 14, 2013
DRISCOLL BABCOCK GALLERIES presents Jenny Morgan: How To Find A Ghost, Morgan’s first solo exhibition with the gallery. In this new body of work, Morgan pushes her transcendent figurative paintings to a larger scale, the pure magnitude of which amplifies the psychological intimacy of her work. Despite the immediacy of her figures, Morgan’s deep insights into her subjects emerge slowly over time; their blurred features, sanded outlines, and unique coloration push her portraits toward a revelatory abstraction.

Chris Burden "Extreme Measures" @ New Museum, NYC

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 02, 2013
The talk of the town in and on one of the most interesting buildings in town. Chris Burden's much-anticipated Extreme Measures just opened at the New Museum in NYC, and outside of the museum. "Spanning a forty-year career and moving across mediums, 'Extreme Measures' presents a selection of Burden’s work focused on weights and measures, boundaries and constraints, where physical and moral limits are called into question."

Banksy Announces "Better Out Than In," An Artists Residency on the Streets of NY

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 01, 2013
Banksy's just announced via his website, an attempt to host an entire art show on the streets of New York! He had hinted at something happening last month with an announcement of sorts for "Better Ourt Than In" on his website. This afternoon his website URL has changed and a more detailed announcement has appeared giving us more information about "an artist's residency on the streets of New York" and what looks to be an exciting month of new work! An instagram account of the same name was just announced...coincidence?
