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 media 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. Quarterly exhibitions, staged to coincide with the release of each new issue of the magazine, will feature a wide range of artists from diverse backgrounds. The inaugural show gathers work by 28 New Jersey and New York-based artists for a dynamic showcase of painting, sculpture, and illustration, opening October 2018.
October 14–November 30, 2018
Opening Reception: October 14, 5–10PM

Directly adjacent to the gallery, Juxtapoz Projects unveils a new 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.
Lastly, Juxtapoz Projects debuts its first artist-in-residence program, situated on the basement level of Mana Contemporary alongside Mana’s own artist tenants. Juxtapoz Projects will select two artists every three months to produce a series in the shared space, then display their work upstairs in the gallery. Rotating year-round, the residency is committed to promoting every kind of artist and establishing a space in which collaboration and inclusivity are valued.
