As part of Juxtapoz’s 25th anniversary, the magazine created a special pop-up exhibition and bookstore at the Vault by Vans store in NYC at 219 Bowery for the month of May 2019. For the takeover, Juxtapoz invited San Francisco-based textile artist, Ben Venom, famous for his unique reinterpretations of quilt-making and the reimagining of American craft art, to showcase some of his newer works for the occasion, to celebrate the spirit of originality and uniqueness that Vault by Vans represents, and the Outsider Art history of Juxtapoz Magazine.

In episode 015 of the Radio Juxtapoz podcast, hosts Evan Pricco (editor, Juxtapoz Magazine) and Doug Gillen (Fifth Wall TV) sat down with Ben Venom at the Vault store in front of a gathered audience, to learn more about not only the tradition of textile and fiber arts, but how Venom was able to take a love of heavy metal, skateboarding and lowbrow culture and transcend it into a fine art practice.

Vault by Vans will showcase Juxtapoz and Ben Venom’s work until early June 19, 2019, at 219 Bowery, NYC.

029: Ron English On Art, Activism and Popaganda, Live from DesignerCon…

Juxtapoz Magazine – It’s rare that you can sit down with one artist who represents so much of a cultural shift that you can’t easily define where to start with their impact. Ron English is that artist. From street art, pop surrealism, activism, political art, public interventions, performance art, music, vinyl toys… the list could go on, but Ron English has played a major roll in shaping the directions in which contemporary art could and has gone over the last 4 decades. The Radio Juxtapoz Podcast sat down with English at DesignerCon in sunny Southern California in mid-November 2019 for a wide-ranging (thank you iced Americanos!) conversation about not only the influential career he has had, but how the contemporary political climate has helped and hindered his art practice. Juxtapoz editor, Evan Pricco, who worked with English on an Political Art issue back in 2012, sits back and let’s the artist ruminate on Trump, street art and how DesignerCon has taken the baton for underground art expressions. The Radio Juxtapoz Podcast is hosted by Doug Gillen of Fifth Wall TV and Juxtapoz Editor, Evan Pricco.

Juxtapoz Magazine – The Radio Juxtapoz Podcast is back, live from the back of a restaurant in Chelsea! That’s where we met up with Rebecca Morgan, a few days before her latest solo show at Asya Geisberg Gallery, Town & Country, was to come down. We have been huge fans of Morgan’s work for years: she was part of our Juxtapoz x Superflat museum exhibition with Takashi Murakami, been featured in our print edition and has had work in other group shows we have curated. As a teacher and artist, Morgan always has an interesting perspective on not only her process of making art but a wider scope of how art can be communicated to others. Her characters are part self-reflection and almost mythical, fairy-tale-esque figures, and have a unique quality of being grotesque and salacious, comic book-like yet autobiographical. For episode 28 of the Radio Juxtapoz Podcast, Morgan and Jux editor Evan Pricco indeed set themselves up in the backroom of Bottino on 10th Avenue on a Friday afternoon to discuss Town & Country, the widening gap between rural and urban America, growing up in Pennsylvania and Morgan’s continued work in the academic world. Produced by Doug Gillen/Fifth Wall TV The Radio Juxtapoz Podcast is hosted by Doug Gillen from Fifth Wall TV and Juxtapoz Editor, Evan Pricco.
