The Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery and Juxtapoz magazine are pleased to present new works by Robert Williams in SLANG Aesthetics! in conjunction with 20 Years Under the Influence of Juxtapoz, a group exhibition by guest curators Andrew Hosner of Thinkspace Gallery and Gary Pressman of Copro Gallery. Both exhibitions will be on view at the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery from February 22nd to April 19th, 2015. These two exhibitions commemorate the 20th anniversary of Juxtapoz magazine, founded by Williams in 1994, and it’s vast influence on several generations of artists.

Juxtapoz magazine allowed Robert Williams to create a platform for this young and insurgent energy on the West Coast and, with its unprecedented success, Williams became widely upheld as the godfather of the lowbrow and pop surrealist art movements. His first major body of work to debut in Los Angeles in well over a decade, SLANG! Aesthetics will feature 25 new oil paintings by the artist alongside a suite of drawings and a series of large-scale sculptures fabricated with the assistance of Gentle Giant Studios.

What once began as an alternative magazine, Juxtapoz is now the most widely disseminated art publication in the world. Predicated on the rejection of the artificial boundaries that kept “high” art removed from popular culture, Juxtapoz effectively broke down those walls to allow young artists a chance at their own history.

Attracting sellout crowds of 600+, from families to celebrities, the renowned Barnsdall Friday Night Wine Tastings—the Foundation’s signature fundraising event—returns to the hill this summer. From Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day Weekend, Barnsdall Park hosts evenings of fine wine and art in the gardens of Frank Lloyd Wright’s newly renovated architectural gem, Hollyhock House.

This summer, ongoing partner, SilverLake Wine returns, curating fine selections of boutique, small production, artisanal wines for park-goers. Art workshops for children, music by KCRW’s DJ Dan Wilcox, and a host of specialty food trucks, also complement this popular family friendly event that has raised nearly half a million dollars to support the Park’s capital projects, art programs, historic renovations and gallery exhibitions over the last five years.
