Jonathan LeVine Gallery is pleased to present Cruel Summer, a group exhibition curated by collector, graffiti historian, Juxtappoz contributor, and urban anthropologist Roger Gastman. "The summer of 1984 was awesome. The space shuttle Discovery took off on its maiden voyage, Apple released the Macintosh personal computer, the Olympics rallied the world together and Karate Kid was the hit film featuring the song Cruel Summer by Bananarama. The song and its video of three gorgeous young women roaming the streets of New York City inspired this show."

The European season has been kicking off over the past few weeks, and we just got a look at what V1 Gallery of Copenhagen has going on at the Art Basel week festivities, with a booth of Geoff McFetridge, Todd James, and HuskMItNavn works at the Volta9 fair. If you are in Europe and have a plan to be in Basel, Switzerland for the weekend, we definitely think you should check out this booth featuring some of Juxtapoz' current favorites.

One of our favorites curators of the moment, Jesper Elg of V1 Gallery in Copenhagen, just opened a curated show at The Hole in NYC called Chicken or Beef?. The show itself is loaded with great talent from both America and Europe, curated as a "Transatlantic survey of figurative painting in Europe and America, named after the ubiquitous question posed on transatlantic flights."

Last week, one of our favorites, Husk Mit Navn (Remember My Name), opened a brand new body of work, One of These Days, at Copenhagen's V1 Gallery. The show is a big one, 13 paintings and 19 works on paper, and we are happy that Henrik Haven was able to head to the gallery and shoot the works in context of the space.

In conjunction with V1 Gallery's 10 year anniversary show, Tonight We Won't Be Bored, the Copenhagen-based gallery just released a series of editions that include Todd James, Richard Colman, Anika Lori, Andrè Saraiva (Mr A), Geoff McFetridge, and HuskMItNavn (Remember My Name). To us, V1 has one of the best programs of any of the galleries we cover, and we want to say congrats on 10 years of showing great artists, and here's to 10 more!

They just don't make them in Belgium anymore, except for HuskMitNavn's Mickey Duck sculpture. Although we don't think this tops the playground sculpture that Husk made in Denmark, this is a good collector's item. Made through Toykyo, the Danish artist made an edition of 12, and declares this will be the last of his Mickey Duck series. More looks after the jump . . .
