MoMA Film to Present Weeklong Series of Documentaries Featuring Artist Associated with Juxtapoz Magazine


NEW YORK, NY.- The Museum of Modern Art presents “All the Wrong Art:” Juxtapoz Magazine on Film, a series consisting of seven new and recently released documentary features on artists associated with the San Francisco–based arts and culture journal Juxtapoz, accompanied by conversations between these artists, filmmakers, and special guest speakers. Running February 7 through 14, 2011, the series is organized by Ron Magliozzi, Assistant Curator, Department of Film, The Museum of Modern Art.

Juxtapoz was founded in 1994 by painter Robert Williams as an answer to the dominant critical aesthetic of the New York art scene, which he saw as favoring abstraction and minimalism over representational forms of art. The publication aligned itself with Surrealist traditions of figurative art, contemporary pop culture, and the graphic tradition of EC comic books, psychedelic rock posters, sideshow freak banners, and Zap comics. Giving voice in the beginning to a generation of illustrators, painters, sculptors, and alternative media artists working in genres that were variously described as “Lowbrow” and “Pop Surrealist,” the magazine has grown its egalitarian mandate from its Southern California roots to an international community working in wide-ranging forms of street, gallery, and commercial art.

The seven programs include the East Coast premieres of Robert Williams Mr. Bitchin’ (2010); Tattoo the World (2010) on body art master Don Ed Hardy; The Treasures of Long Gone John (2007), on the legendary art collector and independent record producer; and a new film on sculptor and rock musician Elizabeth McGrath (Miss Derringer). Also featured are Dirty Hands (2008), Harry Kim’s portrait of artist David Choe; Auto-morphosis (2008), Harrod Blank’s film on the extreme transformation of automobiles into artworks; and Who is Bozo Texino? (2005), director Bill Daniel’s study of tramp culture and railroad graffiti art. Publisher Gwynn Vitello and founding editors Williams, Craig R. Stecyk, and Greg Escalante will take part in the presentation of films and video, which will also include work by Chris Mars, Ron English, Mark Ryden, Marion Peck, and others.
