A few weeks back, we mentioned that NYC's Todd "REAS" James was going to open a new exhibition, Business As Usual, at Galeria Javier Lopez in Madrid, Spain. Well, that show opened. And then we didn't show you the art. And then we saw the art. And then we saw the art in context of the space. And then we thought, wow, that is beautiful. And now we share with you...

The Galería Javier López begins the exhibition season with the specific project ‘Business as Usual’ - the second solo show in our country by American artist Todd James (New York, 1969).

Well, obviously KAWS has big things in store this weekend at the MTV Video Music Awards, airing this Sunday, August 25 from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. We knew he had redesigned the iconic Moonman statue for the award show, and because we like to scour Instagram, we have seen a 60' foot KAWS designed Moonman that will be right in the heart of the Barclays Center during the show. But now we see some updates regarding the great Todd "REAS" James, some bears, and Miley Cyrus. We may actually watch this one.

The European season has been kicking off over the past few weeks, and we just got a look at what V1 Gallery of Copenhagen has going on at the Art Basel week festivities, with a booth of Geoff McFetridge, Todd James, and HuskMItNavn works at the Volta9 fair. If you are in Europe and have a plan to be in Basel, Switzerland for the weekend, we definitely think you should check out this booth featuring some of Juxtapoz' current favorites.

This month, we have asked a few of our artist friends to give us their favorite Beastie Boys' memories. Rarely does a band transcend so many groups and genres, and we knew artists of all ages had a memory they wanted to share. Today, we ask Jeremy Fish about how the Beastie's influenced a kid from upstate New York...

Our Beastie Boys issue is now out in the world, and today we look at the contributions of Todd James, known sometimes as REAS, to the BBoys canon. James created a few animations and graphic works for the Beasties, including the Dusted Elephant. He also created the animated sequence for the 1992 B-side, "The Skills to Pay the Bills."

We are sure that Harmony Korine's "let's put former-Disney girls in bikinis for two hours and see if people pay attention and then have James Franco in cornrows" film Spring Breakers will be the most polarizing chunk of pop-culture in 2013. But we aren't here to review the film, we are here to draw your attention to the Todd James designed Spring Breakers tee created with Opening Ceremony that is part of a larger capsule collection of all things Spring Breakers/Spring Break. Wait, people still get a Spring Break?

One of our favorites curators of the moment, Jesper Elg of V1 Gallery in Copenhagen, just opened a curated show at The Hole in NYC called Chicken or Beef?. The show itself is loaded with great talent from both America and Europe, curated as a "Transatlantic survey of figurative painting in Europe and America, named after the ubiquitous question posed on transatlantic flights."

Former Juxtapoz Magazine cover artist Todd James (aka Reas) will be exhibiting a new collection of acrylic paintings at Lazarides Galleries in London. Part of his iconic Somali Pirates series, the New York-based artist's paintings depict pirates, often in headgear and masks, brandishing AK-47s and performing a range of quotidian activities.
