Update: Decaying Fine Art by Valerie Hegarty

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 16, 2013
We say decaying fine art, but the work of Valerie Hegarty is just so much more. Ravaged paitings, melting canvas, cracked walls, weathered works are all the characteristics of Hegarty's work. Valerie showed at The Queen's Nails in San Francisco earlier this year and is currently in an exhibit at The Brooklyn Museum through December 1st, 2013. The New Yorker called her work a look into "waning powers of a nation and fractured affairs of state." Perhaps of all culture in general?

James Turrell "Aten Reign" @ Guggenheim, NYC

Juxtapoz // Saturday, June 29, 2013
James Turrell’s first exhibition in a New York museum since 1980 focuses on the artist’s groundbreaking explorations of perception, light, color, and space, with a special focus on the role of site-specificity in his practice. At its core is Aten Reign (2013), a major new project that recasts the Guggenheim rotunda as an enormous volume filled with shifting artificial and natural light.

The Cat Show @ White Columns, New York

Juxtapoz // Saturday, June 29, 2013
The Cat Show curated by Rhonda Lieberman at White Columns in New York opened on June 14th and since then has gathered some attention. Critics like Jerry Saltz have been singing praise and the cats have been finding homes. The exhibition essentially functions as a play space filled with stray cats that are up for adoption (or to use the playful puns on White Column's website  a "pussy playground" with "purr-formers").  If you happen to be looking for a cat, or are open to being charmed to the point of adoption, the adoption events have been extended to every Friday and Saturday during gallery hours (12-6 pm) with exception to 4th of July weekend.

Paul McCarthy "WS" @ Park Avenue Armory, NYC

Juxtapoz // Thursday, June 20, 2013
The “ribald, pop-culture-obsessed provocateur” (The New York Times) Paul McCarthy (cover of Juxtapoz in Nov/Dec 1999) applies his signature, irreverent wit to take aim at American myths and icons in WS, his largest work to date and the pinnacle of his creative output. Adding a touch of malice to subjects that have been traditionally revered for their innocence or purity, McCarthy weaves together a massive, fantastical forest of towering trees with grotesque video projections of iconic characters playing out their own fairy tale drama in a replica of his childhood home.
