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.

037: Felipe Pantone Is Breaking Down All our Big Time Data | Radio Jux…

Juxtapoz Magazine – Graffiti, and Street Art for that matter, have been analyzed so much over the past few decades for both its content and social impact as both vandalism at times, and now, for the most part, as the seeds for urban development. Whether 6-story figurative murals or a tag caught on a rolldown, art made on the streets as many different roles to play and stories to tell. But when it comes to the work of Valencia, Spain-based artist, Felipe Pantone, there is something else happening. There is a combination of analyzing and intersecting our digital lives with the spaces we live in and around. From works in public that look like gigantic digital glitches to his paintings and interactive sculptures that almost align more with Op Art than they do with traditional street and graffiti art, Pantone is a bit of an enigma in the contemporary art world. Fresh off this newest solo show, BIG TIME DATA, on view at RGR in Mexico City, Radio Juxtapoz co-host, Doug Gillen, made his way to Spain to catch with Pantone to break down the state of work and the ideas behind “big data.” What Pantone shares with Radio Juxtapoz is the idea that more and more galleries and curators should invest more in artist’s with concepts than an over emphasis on refined figuration. An artist with an experimental passion and now an internationally recognized star, we are excited to share this conversation with Felipe Pantone. The Radio Juxtapoz podcast is hosted by Fifth Wall TV’s Doug Gillen and Juxtapoz editor, Evan Pricco. Episode 037 was recorded live in Valencia, Spain, February 13, 2020.

035: Getting Pop Surreal with Los Angeles Gallerist, Merry Karnowsky |…

Juxtapoz Magazine – Pop Surrealism has a special place in our hearts as Juxtapoz Magazine, whether it be the special universes created by Mark Ryden, Todd Schorr, Audrey Kawasaki or even Marion Peck, but how the city of Los Angeles helped shape that narrative. Yes, an essential part of the story of Pop Surrealism is Los Angeles, the heartbeat of entertainment but also a place of experimentation and grand ideas. At the core of this story is gallerist Merry Karnowsky, who since 1997, has supported and help evolve a scene that was once her backyard and now has become an international art movement. From Ryden, Shepard Fairey, Greg “Craola” Simkins, Camille Rose Garcia and Mel Kadel, Merry Karnowsky Gallery (now KP Projects) has held it down in West Los Angeles for nearly 25 years. Not just an art gallery, Karnowsky’s openings saw a combination of celebrities and LA nightlife that is legendary, long before the world of art, music and Hollywood existed so seamless as they do today. The Radio Juxtapoz podcast talks to Merry about those early years, the evolution of the scene and the unique history of underground culture of Los Angeles. The Radio Juxtapoz podcast is hosted by Fifth Wall TV’s Doug Gillen and Juxtapoz editor, Evan Pricco. Episode 035 was recorded live at DesigerCon 2019.
