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.

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.

020: Ed and Deanna Templeton and the Magic of a Good Photo | Radio Jux…

Juxtapoz Magazine – A few weeks back, Radio Juxtapoz traveled to Tokyo, Japan for the RVCA World Tour, a 7-day takeover of the city that saw numerous art shows, signings, screenings, pop-ups occur in and around Shibuya. Obviously, our focus was the Beautiful Losers: Now & Then show, and it gave us a chance to talk with two of our favorite photographers: the talented and influential Ed and Deanna Templeton. Ed Templeton has been blazed across our memories as a legendary skater who was able to take his skate craft and create fine art and photography that has made him famous the world over. Deanna Templeton has been making these incredibly poetic projects for years, with her The Swimming Pool coming to mind first and foremost. We sat down with Ed and Deanna on a steamy hot Tokyo summer day after a day of RVCA press for the couple. Our conversation went all over: how it feels to bring the Losers back together again, what an Ed shot is versus a Deanna shot, how their longtime home base of Huntington Beach may not be inspiring them anymore and what makes Tokyo a magical place to take photos. The Radio Juxtapoz Podcast is hosted by Doug Gillen and Evan Pricco. Thank you to RVCA for their support of Episode 019 and 020 of the Radio Juxtapoz Podcast.
