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 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.

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.

We actually like a bit of the irony in this window display. We always think that fashion house store window displays has the capacity for really great art installations, and Louis Vuitton is always at the high point of that experimentation. Taking inspiration from the Natural History Museum in Paris' Les Jardins des Plantes, the 5th Avenue storefront is now adorned with gold dinosaur skeletons, mixed with the early Fall 2013 look.

This weekend in NYC, Ricky Powell (and Craig Wetherby) will have his iconic street photos remixed and reworked by Ryan Keeley at an exhibition with ArtNowNy, Frank's Chop Shop, and the Good Life. Of course, Ricky is featured often in our Beastie Boys issue on newsstands now, and we wanted to take this time not only to honor Ricky's classic photography but get the word out on his new show. So, let's get a look...

Juxtapoz will be headed to NYC this week for all the festivities around Frieze and the surrounding art fairs. But one thing we will definitely be checking out is Jane Alexander, cover artist of our Contemporary African Art survey in November 2008, and her installation work with Museum for African Art that is residing at The Cathedral of Saint John the Divine on Amsterdam Avenue.

JR and Jose Parla first collaborated last year in the streets of Havana, Cuba and now they have just completed a mural on the posh walls of Chelsea, Manhattan. The two will be showing together next week on May 7 in a show entitled “The Wrinkles of the City” at Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery in New York. This particular wall reminds us of similar collaboration esthetics such as when The Mac and Retna worked together.

Joshua Liner Gallery is pleased to present Season 1 Episode 0, an exhibition of new paintings by the British artist Ian Francis. This is Francis’ second solo show with the gallery. Working in mixed media on canvas and acrylic panels, Ian Francis combines abstraction, figuration, and elements of both painting and drawing. For this exhibition, the artist is unveiling over a dozen medium- to large-scale works on canvas and ten smaller works on acrylic that reflect broadly on the experience of television entertainment. Season 1 Episode 0 is inspired by the reality and unreality of contemporary TV...

Two former Juxtapoz featured artists, Saber and Rostarr, will be opening a new show at Opera Gallery in NYC this coming Thursday, April 19. We don't have much information at this time, but what we do know is that with the passion and energy of Saber's canvases mixed with the technical abstrations by Rostarr, this one should be good.
