This year, 2009, Juxtapoz is celebrating their 15th Anniversary. To help celebrate, Juxtapoz decided to put together a huge group show and have teamed up with Powerhouse Project in Detroit to help raise money to buy homes in abandoned neighborhoods in order to regenerate one of the symbols of American middle class cities.

To help make this event as big as possible, Juxtapoz reached out to some of their favorite galleries and asked for their help in curating this milestone event.

Dan-ah Kim helps to direct latest video from Asobi Seksu…

Dan-ah Kim recently helped create a music video for Asobi Seksu. Dan-ah co-directed the clip with filmmaker Aaron Stewart-Ahn and created the animation that appears throughout the video. The video is for their first single off their new album called Hush. It was made under a very tight budget and even tighter deadlines, so Dan-ah warns us all it may be a lil’ rough, but she had a blast working on it and we thought it would be cool to share it with you all.

Be sure to check out the work in Dan-ah’s current show that’s on view out in NYC at Giant Robot here.

Look for Dan-ah to make her return to Los Angeles with us next summer – already looking forward to that!

Dan-ah Kim’s debut NYC solo show coming up…

Hot off showing with us down at Art Basel as part of our ‘Looking Glass’ exhibit, Brooklyn-based artist Dan-ah Kim is preparing for her debut solo show in NYC coming up this weekend.

Dan-ah Kim
January 10 – February 4, 2008
Reception: Saturday, January 10, 6:30
Giant Robot Gallery
437 East 9th Street (Between 1st Ave. & Ave. A, in the East Village)
New York, New York 10009 / (212) 674-GRNY (4769) / grny.net
Dan-ah Kim is a Brooklyn-based artist and designer who divides time between making art and freelancing in film and television. Kim’s show will include paintings and mixed media pieces of various sizes, done with gouache, ink, acrylic, layers of paper, and threaded details. Of her recent work, the Pratt Institute graduate says she has found inspiration in everything from history and mythology to constellations. Kim mingles such stories and curiosities with her New York surroundings to create multi-layered, highly textured experiences and imagery of new worlds featuring female protagonists and fantastic creatures in heroic, colorful settings.
Look for Kim to return to Thinkspace for her second Los Angeles solo show in the spring of 2010. Until then, check out our ‘available artworks’ section to view some great works and if you are in NYC this weekend, be sure to swing by her show.
