Street Art // Wednesday, April 06, 2011
The buzz surrounding MOCA's Art In the Streets exhibit can't be any louder, as the response we have received over our April 2011 "Art In the Streets" issue done in conjunction with the show's curators has been off the charts. Maybe it was the Margaret Kilgallen cover? Whatever it is, its getting louder and louder, and just remember if you can't go, there is going to be the show's catalogue book. More after the jump . . .

Longtime Juxtapoz contributors, Roger Gastman and Caleb Neelon, are set to release their massive (seriously, you can break someone's hand with that thing) vast, and important book, The History of American Graffiti, and PBS NewsHour just did a nice segment on the book with the two authors.

Our April issue of Juxtapoz, the Art In the Streets Issue, companion to the MOCA's "Art In the Streets" exhibition that is opening in Los Angeles next month, was curated by Roger Gastman. (Who happens to be a curator of the MOCA show, along with MOCA director, Jeffrey Deitch, and Aaron Rose). The New York Times, getting in the Art In the Streets mood, profiled Gastman this weekend.

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, March 02, 2011
April 2011 marks a special issue for Juxtapoz Magazine, as we were asked by the MOCA to create a companion issue to the first major instituitional retrospective of street art, Art In the Streets. As we documented street art to a wider-audience of fine art, tattoo, pop-surreal, and illustrative art enthusiasts over our 17 years, we wanted to create an extended dialog and history with graffiti and street art pioneers.

Juxtapoz // Thursday, December 23, 2010
Our longtime contributing writer Roger Gastman (and one of the curators of the MOCA "Art In the Streets" exhibition next Spring) has a new book called Tools of Criminal Mischief that documents various tools of criminal mischief. As Roger puts it, "The danger, history, process, spray cans, magic markers, and the local styles are just a few parts of graffiti that I fixate on. Different aspects interest me at different times, but what always continues to excite me is the oddity - especially pedestrian graffiti and the strange pop-culture references."
