Starting June 11 at 10 a.m., "Turn the Page: The First Ten Years of Hi-Fructose" fills the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento with the work of 51 contemporary artists. The exhibit was previously at the Akron Art Museum and Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art, which organized the exhibition that highlights the first decade of the publication’s existence.

Jessica Joslin is the creatrix of a curious menagerie of hybird creatures, composed of a varied anatomy of bone, glass, leather and metal, meticulously assembled to look like real specimens. Her work recalls a sense of the Victorian era's obsession with detail and death and yet retains a playfulness attributed to circus shows of trained animals performing gravity defying feats. Hi-Fructose was recently able to interview the artist, take a look at her intriguing responses after the jump.
