Juxtapoz Turns 18 @ Copro Gallery: The People

Juxtapoz // Monday, March 26, 2012
We showed you the art, but now we focus on everyone that came out to Copro Gallery this past Saturday to celebrate Juxtapoz Turns 18, a retrospective and collection of artworks and artists who have helped shape our publication over nearly two decades. A special thanks to everyone that came to the opening (wait for the next post) and all the artists who contributed to the show.

In L.A.: Todd Schorr @ Merry Karnowsky Gallery

Juxtapoz // Monday, March 19, 2012
Legendary artist Todd Schorr’s latest exhibition Neverlasting Miracles consists of a stunning array of work, several large-scale paintings which are accompanied by small studies in graphite and acrylic allowing the viewer a peek into Schorr’s artistic process. The exhibit also includes a gigantic Humpty Dumpty-esque sculpture, which stands an impressive 9 feet tall. Photos after the jump . . .

Juxtapoz // Saturday, March 17, 2012
Last weekend, one of the best booths in all of The Armory Show was Ambach & Rice's show with Eric Yahnker, titled, brilliantly, Party Sub/Sub Party. Yahnker, our May 2011 cover artist, filled the booth with his incredibly rendered pop-culture commentary, and also was able to obtain signed baseballs from Jesus, Abraham Lincoln, and Justin Bieber.

Opening: Conor Harrington "Dead Meat" @ Lazarides, London

Juxtapoz // Friday, March 02, 2012
London correspondent Butterfly made it out to the highly-anticipated (and we got excited right after our studio visit with Mr. Harrington last month) solo exhibition of Conor Harrington, Dead Meat, that opened at Lazarides Gallery last night. The Irish-born, London-based artist presented 8 large-scale canvases and 24 small studies that reference a "18th-century dinner party, the height of Europe's power and draws comparisons with Contemporary society."

Opening: Os Gemeos @ Prism in Los Angeles

Street Art // Monday, February 27, 2012
We stopped by the opening of Miss You, an exhibition of new works by the Brazilian twins Os Gemeos at Prism Gallery this past weekend. This stunning exhibition engulfs the entire gallery top to bottom, painting the whole gallery even the floors and ceiling. There are several installations, including a few interactive ones and a quite a few larger scale paintings. This is definitely an exhibition not to miss.

San Diego, California based Kelsey Brookes just opened his debut UK solo exhibition, Desires of the Soul, at the Lazarides space, The Outsiders, in London. The avid surfer with a history in microbiology introduces a body of work including paintings, sculpture, and installation work. Our London correspondent, Butterfly, was at the opening.

Ricky Watts' first solo show, Down the Rabbit Hole, opens tonight at Budda Palm Gallery, featuring new works by the Bay Area artist that include paintings done entirely with spray paint and is a continuation of Watts’ experiments with shape and color in abstract forms.
