The Art of Robin Rhode

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 22, 2013
South African artist Robin Rhode embraces a variety of media from photography to drawing, animation, performance and sculpture.

Rhodes transforms simple shapes into elements of narratives, interacting with only an imagined presence.

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 15, 2013
Congo-born, France-based artist Olivier de Sagazan integrates painting, photography, sculpture and performance into a very unique hybrid practice!

Chinese artist Zhang Huan has become well known for his performance art as well as his sculptural works. This morning we take a look through a collection of some of his sculptures including this 2011 piece titled Q Confucius No.2, a 'massive silica-gel, mechanical bust of an unclothed Confucius rests in a rectangular pool.' The sculpture's breast rises and falls as if the object were breathing!

A Ballerina Dances with Daggers on Her Shoes

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 28, 2013
This video performance by Javier Perez features a ballerina whose shoes are extended by a set of sharp kitchen knives.

Bread & Puppet, June 2011

Vault // Tuesday, August 27, 2013
If you grew up in the Northeast of the United States, and your parents were on the liberal kind, perhaps even of the hippie performance art/political theatre bent, then maybe you came across the wonderful world of Vermont's Bread & Puppet. This year, the group celebrates its 50th year, and we look back on our feature on Peter Schuman's influential, timeless live puppet and performance group, and their impact on performance art in America and the world.

Glenn Beck Makes Artwork: We Recommend He Keeps His Day Job

Juxtapoz // Saturday, December 01, 2012
Andres Serrano's Piss Christ (1987), which has always been the subject of outrage and controversy for those of the right wing, has now been brought into a new dialogue with an artwork by none other than conservative radio-host (and resident moron) Glenn Beck in his amateurish and kitsch Obama in Pee Pee which is very much just that. The immature title fits quite well, because the ironic gesture is done so on a very low budget.
