We love when we get two former cover artists on Radio Juxtapoz, and following up on our conversation with Jean Jullien during Miami Art Week where Juxtapoz and Vans took over The Hotel of South Beach, we sat down with one of our favorite contemporary painters, Jenny Morgan. The Brooklyn-based painter, who was the cover of both our print edition and the Juxtapoz Hyperreal book, has been working away in her studio for the past few years, and with her work in Juxtapoz at 25: In Black & White, episode 31 of Radio Juxtapoz is her first interview in over 3 years!

In this conversation, Morgan goes deep into her analysis on self-portraits, not only talking about her revelation of seeing her own self on the wall at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Denver during her mid-career survey, but the intimacy of self and the bodies of her and her friends. The Utah-born painter talks about her life in Brooklyn, how she still feels energized by the city and the artists living there but also how her 3 years away from the limelight after her museum survey has allowed her to reevaluate and enhance her craft.

This episode coincides with Morgan announcing her upcoming solo exhibition with Mother Gallery, opening March 21st, 2020.

All Miami Art Week podcasts were supported by Vans.

Juxtapoz Magazine – Absurdist reality. This is probably the best way to sum up 2020. You put your head down, phone down and take a nap and 20 minutes later you have Kanye West running for president, Donald Trump spending 15 minutes on leather bottom shoes and the twists and turns of a global pandemic that is shifting the way we experience public life. Almost nothing about our life 10 years ago even exists now as we shift further and further into a digital reality, and what comes with this is a shift in the ways we experience truth and reality. In this wide-ranging and engaging conversation, Radio Juxtapoz spoke with Posters to learn how graffiti informed his subversive works on the street in the form of Subvertising and Brandalism, how he began to critique and utilize tech in his practice and the ways that activism can create empowerment in the face of Big Tech. “I also think that deep fakes are the perfect art form for our absurdist reality,” Posters says… and he couldn’t be any more correct. The Radio Juxtapoz podcast is hosted by FIFTH WALL TV’s Doug Gillen and Juxtapoz editor, Evan Pricco. Episode 048 was recorded via Skype from San Francisco/London/Manchester, July 2, 2020.
