Sometimes it is just nice to watch a classy composition of collages moving with the music of Ornette Coleman. Here, we have Jack Walls' Ada collages, based off of Robert Mapplethorpe's work Ada from 1982, with a video done by Zac Stuart-Pontier.

All year long, Juxtapoz is celebrating its 20th Anniversary by showcasing the pivotal figures in contemporary art over the past two decades. Some artists are blue chip, some are underground heroes, others are behind-the-scenes legends. This month, we honor one of the great artists from Los Angeles during our existence, Alexis Ross, who has been monumental in various landmark exhibitions including "Street Market" at Art In the Streets. From working with ESPO, TWIST, and REAS, or working on his own paintings, Ross' story is one of history, frankness, and colorful nostalgia.
