NEW YORK, NY.- The Museum of Modern Art presents “All the Wrong Art:” Juxtapoz Magazine on Film, a series consisting of seven new and recently released documentary features on artists associated with the San Francisco–based arts and culture journal Juxtapoz, accompanied by conversations between these artists, filmmakers, and special guest speakers. Running February 7 through 14, 2011, the series is organized by Ron Magliozzi, Assistant Curator, Department of Film, The Museum of Modern Art. Juxtapoz was founded in 1994 by painter Robert Williams as an answer 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 publication 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
