Coming this Saturday, March 24th, the Copro Gallery will open Juxtapoz Turns 18, a group show celebrating the 18th anniversary of the iconic art magazine. The show will feature work from many of the artists that have been featured in the magazine over the years such as Todd Schorr, Camille Rose Garcia, Robert Williams, Shag, Scott Musgrove, Candice Tripp, Mark Ryden, Shepard Fairey, Dave Cooper, Tara McPherson, and many more. It’s rare that I look through a new issue of Juxtapoz, and even more so that I visit the website, however I am aware of the place the magazine has in the timeline of this scene and look forward to seeing what these artists come up with. The reception starts at 8 PM and the show will run until April 14th. Keep your eye on the galleries webpage for a full preview.
Tara McPherson’s Cotton Candy Machine in New York will now be making limited edition giclee prints for the artists there. To help celebrate this announcement, this Friday December 2nd the gallery will open the Holiday Giclée Show Extraordinaire, with some small and large format prints from Paul Pope, Esao Andrews, Travis Louie, Jeremy Hush, and Tara McPherson. All of the artists will be in attendance, and the first 20 purchases will receive a mini print (in store only). One of the prints by Travis Louie, Claire and her Forest Schnook, is based on one of the paintings from his most recent show. So this is a great opportunity to get a print from this new series of works.

Kidrobot is getting ready to release a new addition to the “Black” series, which previously saw vinyl collectibles by Doze Green, Jeff Soto, SSUR, and Gary Baseman. This new collectible is by Tara McPherson and is based off of her “Lilitu” painting (shown below). This 8 inch vinyl will be limited to an edition of 200, and much like the rest of the series is going to sell out fast. As you can see by the images below, the limited color palette, along with the great design from the artist, really make this one dynamic collectible. As stated by Tara: “This painting is based on the Sumerian myth of the demon Lilitu. Representing chaos, seduction and ungodliness. She is a sexually charged yet infertile succubus who behaves aggressively toward men and children killing them at her every whim, her breasts are filled with poison not milk. In her every guise, Lilitu has cast an evil spell on humankind.” Thanks to Notcot for the heads up, check out their site for an animated gif showing all sides of the sculpture.
Keep your eyes on the site, a release date will be posted soon. Kidrobot Black

This past Saturday, October 23rd, the highly anticipated solo show from Tara McPherson opened at the Jonathan Levine Gallery. The show entitled “Bunny in the Moon” and is filled with work inspired from mythology found from cultures around the world. This is quite a large amount of work created for this show, not only oil paintings but drawings, and even some fabric flowers. Right next door in second part of the gallery was “At the End of the Rainbow” by Xioqing Ding, this is her debut exhibition in New York. She has a very classical style to her work, and you can even see some references to classical paintings and allegories, such as the three graces and Venus. Both shows are now up on the galleries site, and are a must see.
