Juxtapoz Magazine - KAWS: Art Louder Than Words

It’s hard not to notice the astronomical change in the art landscape over the past 25 years. The notoriety and fame that a generation of artists ...

From toys to graffiti, fine art to fashion, art collecting and public art that bridges American pop culture to an international audience, KAWS has defined an era where the artist can be whatever he or she wants to be without compromise. And, in many ways, KAWS has achieved success as an artist without being shackled to a particular thing, a genre, if you will. He really is known as just KAWS, and by and large, he is quite content.

Hip hop photography, remixed by iconic graffiti artists

In the years leading up to the birth of hip hop, graffiti was sweeping the streets of New York and Philadelphia, reinventing itself on the cusp of a new millennium. No longer was it mere inscriptions from anonymous hands, but an emerging world filled with

Nadine Boughton: The Modess Women

One of the taboo subjects in any arena is....well, menstruation. Nadine Boughton tackles the subject with humor and beauty in her new series, The Moddess Woman. Her project reexamines a 1950's ad campaign for Modess sanitary napkins, a campaign that in tr

Philippe Calandre, Utopia – The Eye of Photography

For nearly twelve years, Philippe Calandre’s work has revolved around architecture, and more recently utopia. Since 2012, he has been using the technique of photomontage to introduce imaginary elements into real sites. The peculiar character of Philippe Calandre’s landscapes resides in a subtle balance between the past, the future, and the present. The use of black-and-white or subdued colors lends these images a timeless value. The photographer thus transports us into unknown regions where our dreams and our unconscious may be projected. These utopias evoke a whole literary, architectural, and cinematographic culture. In particular, we think of Thomas More, the sixteenth-century founder of the concept of utopia, of the Babel-like city imagined by Fritz Lang in Metropolis; and of the futurist visions of the architect Antonio Sant’Elia.

Q&A: Yancey Richardson on Gender Diversity in the Art World | PDNPulse

The gallery owner on representing women artists, the challenges they face, and whether or not collectors and curators display bias against women artists.

A study published this spring by The City University of New York’s Guttman College argued that the art world remains predominantly white and male. Nearly 70 percent of the artists represented at 45 prominent New York galleries were male, the study suggested.

New York Stories

The magazine’s first-ever all-comics issue, with 12 tales of the city based on stories from The Times’s Metro desk.

We asked Richards to discuss his experience of sifting through nearly 50 years of photos and memories during the planning of “The Run-On of Time.”

Unpleasant Design & Hostile Urban Architecture - 99% Invisible

Benches in parks, train stations, bus shelters and other public places are meant to offer seating, but only for a limited duration. Many elements of such seats are subtly or overtly restrictive. Arm rests, for instance, indeed provide spaces to rest arms,

Unpleasant designs take many shapes, but they share a common goal of exerting some kind of social control in public or in publicly-accessible private spaces. They are intended to target, frustrate and deter people, particularly those who fall within unwanted demographics.

Maggie Meiners: Revisiting Rockwell

I've always love photographs based on paintings and Maggie Meiner's project, Revisiting Rockwell, is no exception. The idea of using Rockwell's illustrative images as inspiration for photographs is a bit of a meta endeavor as it was discovered that Rockwe

The idea of using Rockwell’s illustrative images as inspiration for photographs is a bit of a meta endeavor as it was discovered that Rockwell’s work was based on photographs that he orchestrated. The idea of revisiting these iconic illustrations is made more interesting by Maggie’s exploration of contemporary subject matter, leading her to the conclusion that the past is not so different than the present

“Either/Or” is a solo exhibition of works by Todd Lim at Booth Gallery inspired by the title of Søren Kierkegaard’s masterpiece. “Either/Or,” explores two world views, one centered on the aesthetic life and the other on an ethical life. Kierkegaard’s purpose, according to the author, was to ‘exhibit the existential relationship between the aesthetic and the ethical in an existing individual’ and remind people ‘what it means to exist, and what inwardness signifies.’

Juxtapoz Magazine - Best of 2016: The Golden Age of Hand-Painted Film Posters from Ghana

When Frank Armah began painting posters for Ghanaian movie theaters in the mid-1980s, he was given a clear mandate: Sell as many tickets as possible. If the movie was gory, the poster should be gorier (skulls, blood, skulls dripping blood). If it was sexy, make the poster sexier (breasts, lots of them, ideally at least watermelon-sized). And when in doubt, throw in a fish. Or don’t you rememberthe human-sized red fish lunging for James Bond in The Spy Who Loved Me?
