Juxtapoz Projects is a multifaceted platform for emerging and established contemporary artists. Through bold programming and innovative collaboration, Juxtapoz Projects manifests its dynamic curatorial vision across three different arenas: a gallery space, a bookstore, and a residency program. An enterprise of internationally recognized art and culture magazine Juxtapoz, which has become a beacon for the underground art scene since its founding in 1994, this is the brand’s first permanent physical base.
Fostering a new generation of painters, sculptors, photographers and new media artists, Juxtapoz Projects Gallery is a space for progressive and inclusive programming. With guest-organized projects programmed for the majority of 2019, the space is a platform for a diverse range of curatorial voices.
On view March 1–29, 2019
Opening Reception: Friday, March 1, 6–9PM
Hours: Thu–Frid, 12–5PM and Sat, 11AM–4PM

Directly adjacent to the gallery is a bookstore and retail location. Stocking issues of the magazine, compendia, editions, and artist-made objects, the store features a wide array of independently published reading material and other products, functioning as a promotional platform for young artists, publishers, and book producers.
The artist-in-residence program, situated on the basement level of Mana Contemporary alongside Mana’s own artist tenants debuted in the fall of 2018. Rotating year-round, the residency is committed to promoting every kind of artist and establishing a space in which collaboration and inclusivity are valued.
