Juxtapoz Fall 2023 Quarterly #228

Juxtapoz is excited to announce our WINTER 2024 Quarterly, the first of 4 special issues celebrating our 30th anniversary as an independently published art and culture magazine. The cover features an exclusive interview with legendary and influential painter, George Condo. 

For the first of four 30th anniversary covers this year, we have George Condo to kick us off, ever a master, ever the evocative painter, and interview. When he tells us, “My perspective… is that there is no real meaningful linearity or chronology when it comes to art,” it feels like a familial mission statement.

Art isn’t about a linear story or history; it’s broad and evolving, malleable and omnipresent. Shepard Fairey, Olivia Sterling, April Bey, Mike Lee, Jon Key, Lola Gil, and Sarah Lee, the artists we speak to on this anniversary, speak about art as this vital lifeblood of humanity, of time turning in on itself, of finding inspiration in the contemporary, classic, and future at all times in their process.

We leave our comfort zones, push to connect, and challenge to find a community and commonality in the expressions of mark-making, even when there is conflict all around us. Art is a collective, permeable history, yours and ours.
