SANER "The Madness of an Unknown Man" @ Museum of Contemporary Art, San Luis Potosí

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 27, 2014
Last week (Friday, June 20th, 2014) the Museum of Contemporary Art in San Luis Potosí presented the exhibit LA LOCURA DE UN HOMBRE DESCONOCIDO (The madness of an unknown man) the first solo show of the Mexican artist Edgar Nández SANER. In this exhibition the Mexican artist reinterprets the concept of madness as a metaphor of disengagement. The madman leaps into de void trying to reach his true destiny by setting free of the ideology of the system. The unknown crazy man is the artist himself ceasing to be unknown and encouraging the spectators to release their own madness.

"Art Truancy: Celebrating 20 Years of Juxtapoz Magazine" @ Jonathan LeVine Gallery—The Art

Juxtapoz // Monday, May 19, 2014
And finally, the art. We are so proud of all the artwork that is on exhibit in "Art Truancy: Celebrating 20 Years of Juxtapoz Magazine," open at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in NYC through June 14, 2014. It blows our mind that we are now two decades old, but what is even more amazing are all the artists that have been in our pages over those years. Their works tell the story, create the chance to document alternative art narratives, bring out the fans, bring out the collectors, and keep the creative energy of Juxtapoz alive. Here, then, is all the art in "Art Truancy."
