With a breathtaking line-up of 150-or-so “lowbrow”/”new fine art” names, In the Land of Retinal Delights: The Juxtapoz Factor - due to open at Laguna Art Museum this weekend – is bound to be a crowd-drawer.
However, I assume there’s only room for one (hopefully representative) piece per artist and I wonder whether some of my insanely talented artist friends should have been included instead of vastly established H&W artists like Paul McCarthy or Raymond Pettibon, but alas, it’s still an impressive mix of artists and styles.
Etymological note to self: Juxtapozian is an adjective now?! o_O
