All The Wrong Art

MOMA to put on Juxtapoz film series "All The Wrong Art", co-curated by our very own Greg Escalante! Feb 7-14
This is a BIG DEAL.

Says Moma:
"The San Francisco–based arts and culture journal Juxtapoz was founded in 1994 by painter Robert Williams as a response 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 magazine 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 to a generation of artists working in genres that were variously described as “Lowbrow” and “Pop Surrealist.”

All film listings here.
So jealous, don't know if I will make it!
