Juxtapoz // Friday, September 23, 2011
After a long drive in the wee hours of the morning, Juxtapoz arrived in the beautiful hill town of Grottaglie in Southern Italy to attend the opening of FAME Festival. With just a few hours to run around the town before sleep called, we saw work by Escif, Blu, Vhils, Lucy McLauchlan, Nespoon, Os Gemeos, Sam 3, Swoon, and others.

Os Gemeos were called upon to be a part of Brazil Back2Black Festival, providing both a visual and physical art experience. The Festival, held in Rio de Janeiro to promote global appreciation for African culture in Brazil, had the Twins create a fantastic installation that stretched through a large indoor/outdoor venue.

A product with a catchy name like “Gemeos Cakes” could actually succeed in a world of bland titles or a unique pancake recipe?

Another showstopper from Art In the Streets, and there are a ton, is the Brazilian twins, Os Gemeos, room/space. We had watched them transform and create this space over the past week, and it was just today we saw it in completion. Trademark fantastic stuff. More after the jump . . .

Everything is getting tightened up at MOCA's Art In the Streets at the moment, and just one walk around the building this morning we found pieces by Os Gemeos, AMAZE, and BLADE, and LEE and FUTURA were putting touhces on the massive mural on the side of the Geffen. Inside is amazing, but more on that later. Pictures after the jump . . .

Another year gone, another year starting. We aren't Sports Illustrated or Rolling Stone where we rank our "Artist of the Year" or "Show of the Year," but we definitely have felt the energy and pulse of contemporary art in 2010, like you, our readers, and have a few ideas of who had major years in 2010. Was it JR and the TED Award? Dr Lakra showing at the Boston ICA? George Condo making an appearance in pop circles with the Kanye West covers and planned retrospective at New Museum?

We have been speaking recently about artists who have had impactful years, and Brazilian twins Os Gemeos (cover of Juxtapoz July 2010) have been around the globe creating more and more conceptual environments for their work to exist in. The newest end of the year announcement from Gemeos is the Moulin Project, something they have participated in before but were more involved this year. Information after the jump . . .

There was some Super8 footage found recently of Herbert Baglione (Juxtapoz July 2009 cover) painting all night in the basement of Lazarides Gallery in London the night before his solo show opened in November of 2008. That was a big show for Herbert, as he introduced some fully-developed color pieces that added to his already signature black and white characters. Watch the video after the jump . . .

The globetrotting twins, Os Gemeos, have been all over the place the past month, staying at RETNA's studio in LA to paint, Art Basel happening, and now they are in a group show at Lehmann Maupin in NYC called Law of the Jungle, that opens Thursday, December 9th. Brazilian artist, Tiago Carneiro da Cunha, curated the show. More information after the jump . . .
