Williams, Robert (Directeur de publication, rédacteur en chef)

Résumé : Juxtapoz Art & Culture Magazine est un magazine créé en 1994 par un groupe d'artistes et de collectionneurs, dont Robert Williams, Fausto Vitello, CR Stecyk III (alias: Craig Stecyk), et Greg Escalante, à la fois pour aider à définir et à célébrer urbain alternatif et underground de l'art contemporain. Il a été édité de 1996 à 2006 par Jamie O'Shea. Juxtapoz est publié par High Speed ​​Productions, la même compagnie qui publie le magazine de skateboard Thrasher à San Francisco, en Californie.Unique dans le domaine de l'édition, Juxtapoz est apparu à un moment critique au cours de la genèse des mouvements artistiques de la fin du 20ème avec la mission de relier les genres modernes comme l'art psychédélique, le graffiti, le street art, et l'illustration, et ceci dans un contexte plus large de genres plus historiquement reconnus comme le pop art et l'assemblage, la peinture et l'art conceptuel. Bien que basé à San Francisco, Juxtapoz a été fondé sur les vertus de la culture pop sud de la Californie et la liberté des conventions du monde artistique de New York qui a gouverné. Ferus Gallery, dirigée par Walter Hopps et Irving Blum dans les années 1950 et 1960 a été la pierre de touche ultime culturelle pour le magazine.

Abstract : Juxtapoz Art & Culture Magazine is a magazine created in 1994 by a group of artists and collectors including Robert Williams[1], Fausto Vitello, C.R. Stecyk III (aka: Craig Stecyk), and Greg Escalante, to both help define and celebrate urban alternative and underground contemporary art. It was edited from 1996 to 2006 by Jamie O'Shea. Juxtapoz is published by High Speed Productions, the same company that publishes Thrasher Skateboard magazine in San Francisco, California.Unique in the field of publishing, Juxtapoz emerged at a critical moment during the genesis of the late-20th century underground art movement with the mission of connecting seminal modern genres like psychedelic and hot rod art, graffiti, street art, and illustration, to the context of broader more historically recognized genres of art like Pop, assemblage, old master painting, and conceptual art. Although based in San Francisco, Juxtapoz was founded upon the belief in the virtues of Southern California Pop Culture and the freedom from the conventions of the "established" New York art world that governed the industry. Ferus Gallery, run by Walter Hopps and Irving Blum in the 1950s and 1960s was the ultimate cultural touchstone for the magazine.Juxtapoz originally reflected Williams' own Kustom Kulture sensibility a combination of California "Big Daddy" Ed Roth-style pop surrealism (identified by some as synonymous with low brow art and others as its own genre, as detailed in low brow art entry)and the serious figurative craftsmanship that is more likely to be found among illustrators than fine artists today.Despite the graphic origins of the magazine, Juxtapoz evolved greatly in the early 2000s to embrace and chronicle many other nascent styles and sub-genres of underground art, becoming the singular voice for the movement as a whole in the process. Today, Juxtapoz is widely credited with being the unifying force that drew together the various satellite art movements like street art and Pop Surrealism, into one coherent movement of "alternative art" that evolved so rapidly during the late '90s and early '00s.
