Juxtapoz has invited Kimou “Grotesk” Meyer to design and create an interactive installation entitled the “Juxtapoz Newsstand.” Inspired by classic newsstands of Brooklyn, New York, Juxtapoz Newsstand is based on an iconic cover of Juxtapoz Magazine designed by Grotesk in 2009, an illustration that was recently shown in conjunction with Juxtapoz’s special projects during their 20th Anniversary in 2014. Juxtapoz Newsstand will feature special artist-made goods, magazines, as well as the release of their newest book title, Juxtapoz Hyperrealism.
