Tilda Swinton is sleeping on the job, literally, @ MoMA, NYC

Juxtapoz // Monday, March 25, 2013
Have you ever had the sensation, while sleeping, that someone is staring at you? And then you wake up and its your significant other/cat/child just peeing at your eyeballs while you are just trying to get some comofortable shut-eye? Yeah, its psychotic. But apparently for Tilda Swinton, who has made a name for herself for being an oddball in a sea of people trying to be oddballs (meaning she is a better oddball then say, Anne Hathaway), she doesn't mind sleeping in front of learing eyes.  She is sleeping in front of people at MoMA in a special, randomly timed, performance piece...

Alexa Meade and Sheila Vand's "Milk: what will you make of me?"

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, November 27, 2012
A collaboration of body painter extraordinaire Alexa Meade and performance artist Sheila Vand, involving the before-mentioned body painting work before Vand lies in a pool of milk. Both in still and video images, this is a particularly interesting collaboration, where the subject comes to life in a fluid "still-life." If that doesn't make sense, click after the jump, and see the video.

Juxtapoz Presents: Duke Riley

Juxtapoz // Thursday, September 27, 2012
Before I’d ever met Duke, I asked my friend Danilo what he was like. “He’s sort of an action hero guy.” I asked Danilo what he meant by this. “I mean, if the world was coming to an end, I’d kinda want to be hanging out with Duke ‘cause he could probably get us out of it.”...

Japanther Vs. Nightshade: The Revenge

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, June 06, 2012
This weekend in Portland, the puppet collective by the name of Nightshade will be teaming up with Brooklyn-based band, Japanther, for three days and five shows of collaborative performance.  Thousands of elaborate hand drawn, hand cut pieces of paper will be projected with a flashlight, combined with the silhouetted band to create a low-tech psychedelic puppet-goth spectacle.  Sounds pretty cool eh?

Alexa Meade @ The National Portrait Gallery Museum, Washington, DC

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, June 06, 2012
Alexa Meade has long been a subject of our fascination and awe, as she transforms live models into living paintings in both gallery and performance settings. She brings paintings to life, so to speak. Tonight, June 6, at the National Portrait Gallery Museum in Washington, DC, Meade will create a pair of portraits with live models—one in a black-and-white scene and a second on a similar, but full-color set, with viewers being able to watch and interact with the process.

The Bosom Ballet

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 23, 2012
'The Bosom Ballet is a performance in which I stretch, pinch, squeeze, twist, rock, roll, and jiggle my breasts to music, usually “The Blue Danube Waltz,” under a pink spotlight. I wear opera-length black gloves and a tutu. Over the years I have also done various other styles of bosom dance. There was the Bosom Tap Dance, which I performed in a nightclub off Broadway...' Annie Sprinkle
